At the beginning of life, war awaits.
A war for “Space”
We fended off hundred of millions of rivals, to win the space and right to live.
We did it, but then, we wanted more.
From a mother’s womb to the real world, from a car grant to a house deed
From land to sea, from the surface of the earth to the moon
We ventured out to the unknown to discover,
We conquered and obliterated those in our way
But our desire for territory only grew, whilst we thought we were better off than before,
Until one fateful day when we gazed upon the stars like a child, we realized how vast and limitless the universe is, and how vast and limitless our solitude grew.
Run, rabbit run
Dig that hole, forget the sun
And when at last the work is done
Don't sit down, it's time to dig another one
So I started seeking, and wandering.
Until one day, a man whispered to me, there is a secret haven in this metropolis that may bring an end to the seemingly endless solitude.
To find it, thou have to exile thyself from the routine, make thy way through a crowded marketplace, and climb flights of stairs, ‘til thou reach the place enshrined in warm sunray and blissful breeze.
At the site that is closest to the sky, thou shalt encounter 7000 free souls.
At the altitude of level 16, blended in shades of gray and white, as if standing in a space shuttle, venturing into the galaxies
The sun, the stars and the nightlights in Klang Valley shall heave in sight.
This is where thou shalt meet artists whom creativity knows no boundaries.
They convey their message to the world through art installations and display their prowess by utilizing limited space to provoke borderless thoughts that roam freely.
And so thou shalt come to understand, the sky is the limit.
You don’t need an observatory to see the sky.
thou shalt only require your sparkling eyes and the altitude of level 16.
This, is Tian Kong Music Festival.
