CONTINUUM by The Observatory, released 15 July 2015 1. PART 1 2. PART 2 3. PART 3 4. PART 4 5. PART 5 'Mankind' 6. PART 6 (Lasse Marhaug Remix) These recordings feature Balinese gamelan-inspired bronze instruments we built based on a 6-tone scale of our own devising. A pair of jegogan and pemade, one cengceng, and a reyong set with acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass, synths, drums and vocals. The initial sketches of Continuum began in Bali, on reyong. Interlocking kotekans were composed and assigned to different instruments like the jegogan, pemade and drums

The Observatory is an art rock, experimental and electronica band based in Singapore, consisting largely of alumni from significant 1990s Singaporean bands. They are influential in the Singapore music scene. The band formed in 2001 and performed for the first time at the Baybeats music festival in December 2002. They have released eight albums: Time of Rebirth (2004), Blank Walls (2005), A Far Cry From Here (2007), Dark Folke (2009), Catacombs (2012), Oscilla (2014), Continuum (2015) and August is the Cruellest (2016). Four years in the making, The Observatory's seventh album, Continuum, is their take on Indonesia's gamelan music tradition. Partially written and recorded in Lodtunduh, Bali, Continuum found The Observatory devising their own six-note scale of E, F, F A C and D#.

The Observatory - Continuum Part 2 Lyrics. Making our way through time and space. Exploring all three to infinity. Suitcase is packed, flyin' free. The Observatory - Continuum Album Lyrics. 1. 2. The Observatory Lyrics provided by SongLyrics.

Continuum Part 1. All the while sippin' on some hibiscus tea. In dark of night a hope would shine, for us to find when we arrive. A radiant light, the river's kind, can get them now, but perhaps one time.

To label The Observatory Singapore’s most adventurous rock band would be understating the fact.
