987FM DJs visit Bedok View Secondary School with EmoCube!
Do you remember seeing that huge cube at The Cathay during the December holidays last year? That was the EmoCube, a giant music-belting structure that was pumping out tracks by The Black Eyed Peas, Gwen Stefani, Mika and Singapore Idol 2009 winner, Sezairi Sezali. Now, the EmoCube has invaded the schools!
So how does the EmoCube work? You can tune into songs either via the main audio jack and share the song with your friends around you. You could also get personal and plug yourself in with your own earphones.
And that’s exactly what the students at Bedok View Secondary School did on 22 Feb 2011. Curious students crowded around the cube during their extended recess time, while 987FM radio deejays Shan Wee and Rosalyn Lee, from the Rude Awakening morning show, were there to rock with them to the tunes.
Here’s what our buddies at Bedok View Secondary School said about it:
Faris Ahmad, 15, said: “I feel that [the] EmoCube is great. We use music as a way to express our feelings. Also as a guy, I do not usually have guy–to-guy talks about certain issues, such as BGR, so this cube is a great thing for us to express our feelings through the music.”
Crystal Cheng, 15, who’s preparing to sit for her ‘O’ Levels this year, shared, “Some of us go to the EmoCube in groups, especially now, during the common test period to listen to the songs. Our friends will know how we feel at the moment and also spend time [to] bond.”
The EmoCube is currently at Kent Ridge Secondary School and will be visiting Yuying Secondary School next week!
