HÀ NỘI — A concert where the audience can join the journey of understanding experimental music will be open for all at French cultural institute L’Espcace on June 12.

Red Dust Horizons Concert will feature performances by five young experimental musicians on a journey inward – shimmering stars, each shouldering an immense horizon of their own.

Particularly, Red Dust Horizons will take place continuously for one hour and 10 minutes, without intermission at the directors’ hands of the trans-disciplinary composer, experimental music improviser, who was also the course instructor, Trần Kim Ngọc, as revealed by the organisers.

The event is hosted by the independent interdisciplinary centre DomDom, with support from Erato School of Music & Performing Arts Hà Nội, L’éspace and TIM ART Studio.

Six works to be performed includes Dạ Nhiên, composed for sound-tape and the monochord by Nguyễn Thuỳ Linh; One Shadow/One Shape, composed for electro-acoustic music and daily objects by Hà Thuý Hằng; Mommy, composed for sound-tape and violin by Tuấn Nị; In Search of Lost Sound, composed for sound-tape and Vietnamese zither by Hoài Anh; Back and Forth, composed for electro-acoustic music and experimental films by Nguyễn Quốc Hoàng Anh and a group improvisation.
