Following the success of the NEA Eco Music Challenge 2011 Showcase at Timbre in June, the top 14 finalists have just been announced last week. They are currently participating in a special mentorship programme with Singapore’s veteran composer, Clement Chow, Timbre Music Academy’s Sara Wee and Mang Irama Dusqie, as well as Intune Music School’s Aaron Lim and Peng Chi Sheng.

Wondering just what’s been happening with us these past months? Here’s a little sneak peek of what’s been going on behind the scenes over at camp Carbon.
We’ve been very fortunate to partner with the National Environment Agency (NEA) in producing last year’s 1st season of the NEA Eco Music Challenge. The competition, was a first-of-its-kind campaign to spread the word on going green through music. This year, we are back for more with an exciting 2nd season, and a new feature artist – local singer / songwriter, Inch Chua.
Look out for the launch of season 2, coming this April 2011!

We began the year with a blast for our first Carbon Outing as we headed to the Night Safari. Arriving just as the crowds started to stream in, we sat down to enjoy a sumptuous meal at Bongo Burgers. Our journey began as soon as our stomaches were satisfied.
Despite having some difficulty viewing some of the animals who were well hidden in their enclosure, the team enjoyed our leisurely stroll through the park.
It was definitely a great start to the year and we’re all looking forward to what’s next!
As part of our tradition, the entire team heads out for a night of celebration at the end of each year. Besides good food and company, we had our Christmas gift exchange as well as lucky draw. Here’s a little glimpse of the night. Enjoy : )
