From the organizer:
A rare solo performance from one of Hanoi’s most respected underground musicians. A regular performer with an international reputation, Tan is equally respected for his classical compositions, electronic experiments and DJ sets.
Last year, Tan returned from Los Angeles where he premiered his latest compositions Cracking Bamboo and Song of Napalm at Southwest Chamber Music’s International New Music Festival. It was the second time Tan had been asked to contribute to Southwest Chamber Music events, with two-time Grammy Award-winning conductor Jeff von der Schmidt responding to the mid-performance standing ovation Tan received in 2010 with “I’ve never seen anything like it in my career.”
This Thursday, Tan will be playing sample based experimental music. His complex, ever evolving setup involves a laptop hooked up to a midi keyboard allowing him to add samples such as trains, street sounds and heavy machinery at will. Tan will also use a Kaos Pad full of digital effects and a modified mixer with hand-made noise presets and will even make use of simple sound apps on his Iphone.
