HA NOI (VNS) — The capital city will host its first ever experimental music festival from November 30 to December 8.

The Ha Noi New Music Festival 2013 will feature more than 50 Vietnamese and international musicians from the UK, Germany, Italy, France and Scandinavian nations who will perform in different venues.

In addition to electro-acoustic music, a range of contemporary chamber music will also be performed at the festival.

Vietnamese musician Vu Nhat Tan is expected to present his new commissioned composition at the Ha Noi New Music Festival 2013.

Apart from the concerts, festival goers will also be able to see interactive music productions, improvisations, music installations and music theatre in the city.

With "The Blind Spot" as its title, organisers said the festival not only seeks to change the invisibility of contemporary music on the local scene, filling the gaps in knowledge, but also generate synergetic effects to strengthen musical infrastructures between Viet Nam and the world.

Hub for Experimental Music&Art, which is organising the festival, said they plan to put the event on country's annual festival agenda.

Participants need to register for a festival pass or individual entrance. For further information, please visit www.hanoinewmusicfestival.vn.—VNS
