From the organizer:

Dennis Tan, current residence artist at the New Space Art Foundation in Hue, will give a talk about his sound works along with a sound performance. A day before our talk, Dennis Tan performs with Vu Nhat Tan and Nguyen Van Thao at Manzi.

Dennis Tan is a sound artist who deals with universal themes and the communication between individuals and society. His work is conceptual and influenced by his personal experiences. The impulse to develop sound body resulting from his interest in the sound and the material in the literal sense. In the creation of sound bodies the inclusion of environment, perception and communication patterns play a formative role. His works convey “stories” about the ideas of music and instrument and its analysis are also marked by hidden humor. All of this happens out of the quest, to develop new worlds of sound and to expand the multimedia perspectives and to promote their reception.

As an improvisor and an experimentalist, Tan has performed with different musicians and have played in Germany, Finland, Poland, Estonia, Bangkok and Singapore. In 2011 he co-hosted a series of DIY electronics workshop and currently he has been conducting workshops in Bangkok, Leipzig and Singapore.
