TO celebrate the 53rd anniversary of the Cultural Center of the Philippines this month of September, the SINAG 2022: Light and Sound spectacle will light up the CCP façade from September 22-25, 2022. Multi-awarded lighting designer John Batalla conceptualized the outdoor light show with sound design by Jethro Joaquin. “We will interpret the three transcendentals of Truth, Goodness and Beauty paired with a soundscape of indigenous Filipino instruments, snippets of folk music and quintessential Filipino sound bites or quotable quotes from the past,” Batalla said. Batalla partnered with Joaquin to curate the soundscape or soundtrack for the show.
