The work cryptonym: is inspired by Singlish and other languages and dialects spoken in Singapore. Code-mixing and the merging of languages and dialects is a uniquely Singlish trait. The three saxophone quartets — homonym (2013), heteronym/ (2016) and cryptonym: (2018) may be performed one after another.
