JAKARTA: Composer Erwin Gutawa and director Jay Subiyakto, along with promoter Live Action, is preparing a concert dedicated to singer and composer Chrisye, who passed away in 2007.
The concert, which is to be called “Kidung Abadi Chrisye” or “Chrisye’s Eternal Ballad”, is slated for April 5 in Jakarta.
Erwin said the concert was not designed as a tribute. “This has to be Chrisye’s fourth concert,” he said, as quoted by kompas.com. Holographic techniques will make it appear as if the singer herself is actually onstage.
A book titled Chrisye, di Mata Media, Sahabat & Fans ( Chrisye in the Eyes of the Media, Friends and Fans ) will also preserve the memory of the composer who rose to fame in the 1970s.
