Tonight, the media ‘workers’ of SPEKTR! also performed the TheatreWorks space 72-13 at Mohamed sultan Road.  They presented a audio and visual piece mapping 88 frequency zones mashed with years of archived analogue and digital signals.  In Singapore, their presentation was focused on the dynamics of world trade, shipping, aviation and control systems along the Straits of Malacca.  Here are photographs of the event.
