Danish artist Lotte Anker, a prominent musician and improviser, will perform this Saturday with local musicians in a show that combines traditional Vietnamese instruments and Western electronics.
Known as one of the most significant free-form improvisers in northern Europe, Anker has returned to Viet Nam following his appearance at the Ha Noi New Music Festival in 2009.
In this collaboration project with Vietnamese musicians and improvisers, Anker presents musical works based on absolute improvisation to celebrate and explore a wide diversity of sounds in a contemporary musical landscape. He will host an art talk on contemporary improvisation on Sunday.
The concert starts at 8pm this Saturday at Cheo Theatre, 15 Nguyen Dinh Chieu St. The art talk will be held on Sunday at 7pm at Manzi, 14 Phan Huy Ich St. Admission is free.-VNS
