An improvisational performance with video and graphic scores organised by the Domdom Contemporary and Experimental Music Club will be held in Hà Nội today, with public participation encouraged.
The improvisation session will be guided, focused on musical responses to images. Attendees will perform in a group, responding to clips from the films Tree of Life (by Terrence Malick) and Her (by Spike Jonze), and video art by James Richard and Duncan Campbell – both nominated for the Turner Prize in 2014. Through responding to moving images, the players can improvise to a common aim, enabling them to create music.
The players will also seek inspiration from graphic scores by composers such as Gyorgy Ligeti and John Cage.
The event will take place at Puppets Café, 27/189 Giảng Võ Street, from 11am until 1pm today. — VNS
