Singaporean electronic ethnic fusion band, Travellators creates fusion between classical and contemporary music with avant-garde sound art. Travellators was formed with an interest in combining ambient music with ethnic classical music and sound art. Travellators seeks to challenge boundaries of performing analogue Asian instruments with Western modern instruments/technology.
The band members express a certain kind of improvisational meditative avant-garde arrangement in their composition, which requires more experimentation in improvisational music than a formalist approach to composing. They use music in a literal conversation, just like classical Indian music modes of raga. Travellators also play on the audiencesí perceived audio senses; creating a displacement and disorder in-between notes, keys, sounds, time and space as key elements to identify and distinguish its repertoire of songs.
