Music for 20th Century Vietnamese Animation
About project: Red Balloons: Music for 20th Century Vietnamese Animation is a special cine-concert organized by The Onion Cellar and TPD Centre for the Development of Movie Talent, in which contemporary music artists re-compose and perform live their soundtrack for five classic Vietnamese animation films. With “Red Balloons”, the newly-commissioned soundtracks propose a diversity of contemporary sonic approaches – activating new dynamics between images and sounds and shedding light into a much-overlooked terrain of Vietnam’s screen heritage.
