TL;DR – What will you notice, if you slow down to appreciate the little moments?
Stumbled across a superbly mood–uplifting video that I just have to share it!
It’s part of a project called ‘Wallflowers: Sights & Sounds of Singapore‘, meant to encourage Singaporeans to pay greater attention to their daily environments, and rediscover the beauty of the little things in life.
‘Wallflowers’ is a multi-disciplinary project that highlights the hidden sights and sounds of iconic locations in Singapore. Altogether, Wallflowers consists of a sound collection, a video series, music tracks created by local music producers, as well as visual art in the form of found objects and location-based art installations.
What will you notice, if you slow down to appreciate the little moments?
The first episode under the Wallflowers project is Mornings in Tiong Bahru.
The creators had recorded both the video and sounds in one day, and the sounds were then processed and collated into a sound library which was used to create the amazing instrumental soundtrack in the video.
What’s even more amazing is that the creators wanted to enable more people to use these sounds creatively, so we have made them available for free. YAY! Sounds that are uniquely Singaporean! Download the Tiong Bahru Sound Library for use in your own creative works here!

Geylang, sipaku Geylang, Geylang
Yay! Wallflowers’ second video was also released last week!
And they’d chosen to feature the very colourful Geylang in their second video. I personally prefer the visuals of the Tiong Bahru one, but I loooooove the BGM of the Geylang one, so go check it out!
