Space Interrupted

Features musicians playing at unusual places. The aim is to offer an alternatives point of view for audiences to enjoy intimate music show apart from conservative TV shows, and also to documenting the local music scene. In each series different musicians will choose one unusual place (not stage or music studio) to perform. QUBtv will film the performance, (and at some moments) the interaction between the artists with unexpected audiences.


We found ourselves at Thamrin area, early in the morning, going to shoot Lightcraft without any plan at all. After a quick meeting someone said that it would be cool to shoot in a place where elderly hang out. Hell, why not? Luckily the Lightcraft boys were really up for anything, so we headed to Kopi Es Tak Kie in Glodok and it’s quite an adventure to the band, as they’ve never went to the area before. Not long after, they began to start their set. Lightcraft’s official bio says that they make their music out of sadness & melancholia, we don’t know how much sorrow these guys have experienced but we were especially excited to see how they would pare down the many layers of their sounds into an acoustic set. Surely Lightcraft have talent for pop songs–obvious but not cheesy; nice structure with full sound, and what follows is a wave of pretty melodies; intimate, beautiful and sounding perfectly with the odd settings around them. For people who loves melodies, we’re thankful to Lighcratf for this set.
