From Japan Foundation Center for Cultural Exchange in Vietnam:

The Japan Foundation proudly presents a series of electronic music called “Bordering Practice: Call Back from Hanoi — Pop & Electronic Sounds in Asia” featuring artists from Vietnam, Japan, Philippines, from March 14 to 16 in Ho Chi Minh city and Hanoi.

The music scene has undergone rapid change ushered in by the spread of the Internet. Innovations affecting how music is produced, changes to the ways in which we listen to music, and the emergence of bottom-up scenes through social media have led to new musical cultures online as well as reciprocal cultural influences that transcend national and territorial borders. This program focuses on these post-internet conditions in expression and culture, endeavoring to form partnerships with local labels in the cities featured and cultivate a new scene (that is, an environment in which artistic expression can appear). In order to detect the idiosyncrasies and commonalities within each community, the project intentionally draws “borders” and then joins them up, uncovering contemporary glocal (simultaneously global and local) scenes that transcend geography.

Part of the Japan Foundation Asia Center’s media art exchange program launched in 2016, Bordering Practice is a project that encourages interchange among the next generation of talent with a focus on technology-driven creativity and the electronic music scene that has witnessed exciting growth in Asia through collaborations between local artists. In March 2019, Japanese, Filipino, and Indonesian artists will take part in a residency in Jakarta where they will produce work together, followed by a live performance tour to Jakarta, Ho Chi Minh City, and Hanoi. Along with taking the concerts previously held at Manila and Tokyo to three cities and forging exchange with new communities, the program aspires to build a platform that can further develop this network. Expanding the elements of exchange, sharing, and collaboration already initiated, Bordering Practice will create and disseminate new music and video content, in the process making a model for future collaboration between up-and-coming artists in Asia that can continue after the end of the project.

The last stop on the Bordering Practice performance tour is Hanoi, which will host a series of events in the form of talks, workshops, and a showcase that aims to facilitate exchange between Hanoi’s next generation of musicians and listeners as well as musicians based in Tokyo and Manila. Through this intersection of Hanoi, where new cultural activities continue to expand and evolve, with Tokyo and Manila, where diverse cultures mix and resonate, the program will examine their commonalties and distinctions relatively, and consider visions for the music activities in each of the cities.

The program series in Hanoi is divided into 3 different sessions as below:
