ARE you a creative musician with high hopes to ‘raise your voice’ and showcase your artwork to the public, but somehow opted for silence due to a lack of platform? Now it’s time for you to break the silence and regain your spotlight with the return of the new Sound Initiative (TSI) Project called “Raising The Volume”.
Proudly presenting the “Raising The Volume”, The Sound Initiative (TSI) created the project with the aim of providing a helping hand to emerging musicians and elevate the platform of young women’s innovation and entrepreneurship through music and video production.
“We created this project to empower women’s creativity and innovation in the field of entrepreneurship and aside from this, we also encourage the prospective young people who wish to witness their music and film concepts published in public,” said Vornyen Samath, Project Officer at The Sound Initiative.
The Sound Initiative (TSI) will host a two-day workshop for the public and especially for those endowed artists-song writers and film producers who wish to find more creative musical content and develop musical videos for The Sound Initiative (TSI) new Project — “Raising The Volume” a concept grounded in women entrepreneurship.
“The Sound Initiative (TSI) will work alongside — by presenting ideas — the winning applicants to produce a film and song. Therefore, we would like to encourage dynamic youths out there who have been hesitant to apply, to try it out with this given opportunity to gain more experience among accomplished artists,” point out Vornyen Samath.
The workshop will kick-start with the biggest names in the music and film industry. That’s no other than filmmaker Ms Lomorpich Rithy and talented pop star Mr Soria Oung, taking centrestage at the Kbach Gallery on Sept 14.
The Saturday event at Factory Phnom Penh also provides a chance for the audience to engage with the artists and women entrepreneurs in a vibrant conversation and demonstrate their artistic ideas in the ensuing panel discussion on Sept 15 (Sunday).
Distinguished women entrepreneurs who stand out in the event are Ms Seang Sokcheng, co-founder of Wapatoa.com, a bilingual website that answers the urgent need for fun, intelligent content regarding knowledge which make one’s life better. One of her messages to the public is “Be curious and never stop learning,” said Seang Sokcheng.
