Ocean of Fire

Ocean of Fire is an instrumental progressive rock quartet from Penang. The band’s music is a fusion of various genres, including heavy riffs of metal and the more experimental live improvisations of jazz.




Imagine PVC skeletons the size of trucks ambling gracefully across a beach and you might just be able to picture a Strandbeest. Having racked up more than 3.7 million views on his TED talk, Dutch artist Theo Jansen has enthralled people from all over the world with these life-like creations and will be bringing them to Southeast Asia for the first time.
