Dharma (Singapore)

Dharma is best known as the former guitarist of Singapore out-rock group The Observatory, involved in seven albums of diverse moods and styles, from the downtempo cool debut of Time of Rebirth (2004) right up to the gamelan fusion of Continuum (2015). His side projects have been extensions of this varied practice: Meddle (krautrock melee) and Chöd (spiritual noise-drones). During the 1990s he was guitarist of Singapore blues-rock veterans Heritage and later on founding funk fusion outfit Throb. Dharma’s solo practice, which came to fore with his 2013 solo debut, Intergranular Space, has opened up new vistas for his guitar work. Using prepared and extended techniques, his guitar no longer just plays notes and chords, but summons forth colours, textures and visceral responses.
