Official celebration for debut Sundrop ((( 1 ))): one of Manila’s underground gems of neo-soul music, who had disappeared from us since 2012, is returning to our world to translate messages that come from her journeys off-grid.
Now, with a name that she intends to not be pronounced, artist ((( O ))) has founded The Sundrop Garden to present her debut album entitled “((( 1 )))”, as the first of a 12-series of albums, or “sundrops”. Each sundrop is composed of 12 tracks, or “moondrops”, that have been gathered every full moon.
12PM - 5PM
LOCAL SUSTAINABLE BRANDS & VENDORS: Support and interact with local sustainable brands and organisations sharing their vision and displaying their philippine-resourced products and missions before reaching the entrance of the ‘Listening Gallery’, so that everyone who will come to the gathering, has the opportunity to leave the space as a more environmentally-friendly human being.
THE LISTENING GALLERY: Immerse into a "listening gallery" representation of the virtual garden at virtual.thesundropgarden.com, where each room has a visual experience, binaural beat, native plant, and selected aromas dedicated to each moondrop from sundrop ((( 1 ))). We want to shed valuable light on our inherited identity, from the root, to the next generation, by reconnecting with these hidden treasures.
