After relocating from Baguio City to Mandaluyong City, Filipino experimental musician and writer Levi Masuli has released a conceptual audio work called “Improvisations on Sel*cta Ice Cream Truck Theme.” The concept is to subject a loop of the Selecta ice cream truck jingle to a variety of audio effects and manipulate the sound improvisationally. He collaborated with video artist Kabunyan Palaganas from Baguio City with a video which subjected Selecta commercials to video effects, thereby replicating the audio work’s concept.
The audio work can be streamed via Levi’s Bandcamp page.
The video can be streamed via Kabunyan Palaganas’ Vimeo page.
