When music meets literature …

What happens when music meets literature?Would it be  a rendering musical – drama performance ? Or a melodious – mystical sounds of guitar  played in harmony with  words and silence? On March 19, we had the luxury of experiencing both.

It was a rare opportunity for many of us here at English department to have  two personnel of  Payung Teduh band, Is and Comi, being together on a different kind of  stage : an academic one.  A stage that is more familiar for Akun, an English department senior lecturer  and Comi,a lecturer at English department and a bass player for Payung Teduh.

The trio elaborated the most likely places and forms where music and literature may meet. While Akun was exploring the issues from academic perspectives,  Is was bringing back the audiences to the creative process of his song writing. Comi, having lived in both worlds for several years, was acting as bridge in the discussion, sharing his thoughts on the meanings of Payung Teduh lyrics.

Attended by hundreds of participants from English department, Binus University departments, and high schools students out side of Binus, the seminar was a fresh start to this academic year. Organized by HIMSI and led by Adinda Damarsari, the seminar fulfilled its two main objectives, firstly, to give a different academic color to Binus university and secondly, to familiarize students with topics and discussions that are closely attached to English literature.

From Dinda to Kak Is, with gratitude and sincere thanks.
