Aural Fixations: An Interview with Lim Ting Li
It was during my second year in Ngee Ann, when we started to learn more in-depth about each department. I had a lecturer, Jürgen Frenz, who really encouraged me in terms of pursuing sound. In Year Two, there was a music project where we were supposed to record a band and I guess I was with a bunch of people that were musically inclined, while I had no music training whatsoever; they really knew how a kick drum is supposed to sound like, where a guitar should be placed in the track, that kind of technicalities you know. Anyway, I was marked down for that project, and I recall that he personally called me and told me that though my assignment was a C, he thought I have talent in this discipline, and that he hoped I would continue with it.
