[LumiNation 2019] Performance – MuseTV – Lyrics and Themes of Malay Drama Serials

Featuring established TV producers Zaharian Osman, Rifaah Ridzwanulhakim and composer-lyricist Reyza Hamizan, this performance-forum takes a look at the lyrical aesthetics and themes of Malay TV drama serials. Songs presented in drama serials are cut to two minutes or shorter to cater to the air time of television. How, then, are the content and aesthetics of the lyrics presented in Malay drama serials affected by these cuts? What are the similarities and differences between Singaporean songs and songs from other channels (e.g. Astro, Persona, etc). What about TV genres that require a specific type of lyricist, like comedies and psychological-thrillers and horror shows? How do writers fit the process of song-making into the TV requirements? All these questions and more will be answered in this forum.
