HÀ NỘI — Heritage Space continues its monthly concert series Beyond Sound on Friday night, featuring the “hottest” generation of Vietnamese experimental musicians and international guests.

At the first show of the new lunar year, which will take place from 8.30-10.30pm, the audience will have the chance to enjoy live music performances by Japanese saxophonist and video artist Katsura Yamauchi.

The night will also feature Parallel Asteroid, a new work by the Austrian-Vietnamese duo Siedl Cao consisting of Vietnamese versatile artist Cao Thanh Lan and Austrian clarinet and saxophone artist Gregor Siedl. The two artists have collaborated to present electro-acoustic compositions and composed improvisations for prepared marxophone, clarinet and electronics.

Tomorrow’s repertoire will also include some improvised musical performances by emerging Vietnamese experimental musicians such as Thuỳ Dung on đàn tranh (plucked zither), Hương Nguyễn and Thanh Tâm on objects, Nguyễn Việt on saxophone and Nguyễn Đỗ Minh Quân on electronics.
