HA NOI (VNS)— Siestes Electronique (Electronic Naps), an experimental music concert to take place at Thong Nhat Park tomorrow, lets attendees enjoy music in a casual setting.
Listeners can wander around the park, sit on chairs or lie down on the grass and close their eyes.
The music event started in 2002 in Toulouse, France. After becoming an annual music event in France, it spread to Berlin, Montreal, Kyoto and Brazzaville in the Congo.
Viet Nam's first-ever Siestes Electronique will present a mixture of electronic and experimental music as well as traditional Vietnamese music performed by French and local artists.
The French guest artists include filmmaker Vincent Moon, famous for his "Take-away Concert", in which he filmed musicians in various locations such as streets, buses and parks before the eyes of amused onlookers. Tomorrow he will show some of these raw, improvised sessions.
Laurent Jeanneau, another French artist, has worked for more than 10 years to preserve the music of ethnic minority groups, mixing live recordings with electronic and acoustic elements.
Musician Jean Nipon will impress local audiences with unique melodies that move from 8-bit to breakcore and techno.
Sharing the stage with them will be Viet Nam's "best sound wizard", Vu Nhat Tan.
Widely seen as the country's top experimental sound artist and electronic musician, Tan has performed in Germany, Finland, Poland, Estonia, Bangkok and Singapore.
HCM City-based musician Nguyen Hong Giang, who goes by Writher when performing electronic music, will also present his progressive compositions.
Siestes Electronique will take place from 3-6pm. — VNS
