German, Vietnamese Sound Artists to Hold Workshops, Perform in Hanoi

Starting this weekend and continuing through next week, Hanoians will have the opportunity to attend a combination of workshops and live performances from both German and Vietnamese sound artists.

Hanoi-based project partner Undecided Productions teamed up with Berlin-based experimental music event organizer Blind Signal to deliver the program, with the live performances taking place in Hanoi April 20–27. Later in the year, the group will travel to Berlin, with the artists’ performances taking place in a church in the German capital.

In Hanoi, Antye Greie-Ripatti, Gil Delindro, Huong Donna, Julius Holtz, Luong Hue Trinh, and Linh Ha will take part in a week of collaborations while aiming to create immersive group listening experiences. After one week, the artists will perform several new songs.

Tomorrow, both Linh Ha and Luong Hue Trinh will run workshops, while on Sunday, Julius Holtz and Huong Donna will follow suit. They will take place at Hanoi Rock City. On Monday, there will be a performance of ‘Tín hiệu từ Berlin’ at the Goethe Institute, featuring Antye Greie-Ripatti, Julius Holtz and Gil Delindro. Following this performance, they will then run workshops in the same venue on Tuesday, before a final performance named 'Đoàn' on April 27.

Blind Signal started in 2015 as an event series focused on promoting contemporary and New Music by Berlin-based international artists. Through this work, Blind Signal realized the wealth of the contemporary music scene in Berlin could be celebrated via cultural exchanges with more geographically distant places. Their first proposal was for an exchange with artists in Vietnam.
