From Goethe Institut:

Berlin-based sound artist, composer and experimental turntablist Ignaz Schick will visit his colleagues and friends, players, performers, composers from the “highly unique Vietnamese experimental music scene” (Ignaz). The meeting will include a workshops with rehearsals, discussions and performances including both compositions and improvisations by the invited participants.

Ignaz Schick visited Hanoi two years ago during his extended research trip through various South East Asian countries. He met well-known artists from the local scenes, gave a workshop with young local musicians, and premiered a graphic score piece written especially for traditional, modern and even self-built instruments. The collaboration was so promising that the Berlin Arts Council could be convinced to support a second travel. For reasons of continuity Schick has invited the same musicians from last time but also added a few new faces.

Besides Ignaz Schick the following musicians have been invited: Nguyen Thuy Dung (Dan Tranh), Nguyen Thu Thuy (Pipa), Pham Thi Tam (Objects), Nguyen Thi Thu Huong (Objects), Nguyen Hai Duy (Electronics), Kim Ngoc Tran (Voice), Ngo Tra My (Dan Bau), Nguyen Xuan Son (Percussion), Giang Hong Nguyen (live-electronics) & Vu Nhat Tan (piano).
