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.”
