[NO FILTER in RecRoom]ExperimentalCello vs Noise[VuNhatTan&PeterJacobson.Hanoi08.2016]

NO FILTER/Noise vs Funk
is a night of fringe art music to fascinate and groove to. Cellist/producer Peter PT Jacobson and experimental vanguard Vu Nhat Tan bring captivating elements of street noise, melodic cello loops, nature sounds, hip hop beats, and trippy textures. The semi acoustic performance will feature cello and keyboards, sampling and processing. Flavors of the LA underground creative beat scene meet rich cello music and avante-guarde Hanoi noise. But the whole thing will be sexy and and groove oriented so people feel free to move and maybe dance to it
It will be an interactive musical event between the two artists, between a cello and electronic/sounds and other instruments, and between the two artists and the audiences. The audiences can bring their own instruments and play along with the artists in the second part of the program.”

MULTIMEDIA Installation and Music event | VÔ CỰC – THE INFINITY 2016

VuNhatTan Tùng Monkeyend-03

Heritage Space warmly invites you to “THE INFINITY”, a MULTIMEDIA Installation showcase by artist Tung Monkey, curated by Nguyen Anh Tuan, and a night of Experimental Electronic Music performing by musician Vu Nhat Tan, Nguyen Do Minh Quan and guest artist Nguyen Huu Hai Duy.

THE INFINITY
Multimedia installation by Tung Monkey
As part of the research on the bend of view-points and new dimensions from obtuse angle, Le Thanh Tung continues to employ these elements to his latest installation at Heritage Space. Applying musical material by Vu Nhat Tan, the graphic lines and waves interact with frequency bands and fluctuate with the pitch ranges to create an Infinity by visual effect.
Description
The installation will be a mirror – window – area of 4×4 meters put vertically. Taking advantage of the light refraction of the glass and wallpaper background, the images from the 4 LED screens will replicate themselves and be drawn into the center of the mirror, creating an Endless effect.
This mirror
Window will be placed in a dark environment to create focal points. The installation is at the exhibition center area, and is a bridge between the two areas of sound artists.
During and after the show, this arrangement will continue to create interactive graphic effects with the music in the room.
Concept
The endlessness of viewpoints is always a fascinating subject to me. Physical space limits you by dimensions, like television screens or pictures, but their content brings an expansion of vision and imagination for you. This is an interesting point. In the process of searching for the true meaning of this ‘expansion’, which has become trendy with the concept of VR (virtual reality) recently, I continue to present new suggestions about this through the new artwork ‘THE INFINITY’ at Heritage Space: Is this expansion enough for humans? Will people perceive the world by their eyes or their brain? Are we on the road to a Matrix society?

A night of Experimental Electronic Music
Performed by: Vu Nhat Tan & Nguyen Do Minh Quan, guest artists Nguyen Huu Hai Duy
Interacting with Multimedia Installation by Tung Monkey
Sound performance
The interaction between Music and Multimedia Installation consists of two separate small stages at two far away corners, each of which will be in charged by an artist and a guest artist. The stages will be installed with two separate sound systems including the full range speakers supporting the electronic music and improvisation which interact with each other and at the same time with the visual space created by Tung Monkey’s Video art.
Concept
Being performed in the show will be a mix between electronic music, piano and Vietnamese traditional instruments, like the continuity from the ancient to the present to create a more powerful music – Experimental Electronic Music.
The show also combines creativity and improvisation, the music interacts with images and videos in the same space, supporting each other and at the same time are movements of consciousness kinds. The visual space integrated to a sound space will create new experience to the audience’s senses. Hence the experience will be well differentiated and stimulating, when the audience can freely move during the show in a space filled with pictures and videos, as well as music, from the whole room to each corner.
