Carnatic violinist Lazar T. Sebastine and composer-pianist Tze Toh have been performing together for more than 14 years in concerts/festivals in Singapore and around the world. As part of contemporary music group TO ensemble, they perform his original compositions: a fusion of jazz, film music, Indian music, classical music and Asian sounds, which is influenced by the music of Ryuichi Sakamoto, Ennio Morricone, Keith Jarrett, Stravinsky and Debussy.

Their concerts often reflect on the connections between Man, nature and technology. Their latest album Memories of Protected content what it means to be human, through a story of an A.I discovering its consciousness in a post-human world.

They will discuss how spirituality and the desire for a perfect harmony (in sound) are the key elements in their approach to music making, and possibly living life itself. Tze will share how the harmonious coming together of the diverse cultures in Singapore inspired him to discover and create his own musical voice as a composer and improviser, and also creator of multi-disciplinary collaborations and works. Lazar will share about the beauty, characteristics of South Indian) music, from the stories told through the scales, unique technique of embellishment (Gamakam), to a glimpse of the complex rhythmic system of Indian music which has existed for thousands of years.

They will perform a preview of music from their upcoming concert. Attendees stand a chance to win 2 pairs of tickets.
