The Hanoitimes - Hanoians to enjoy the second concert of the experimental musical performance series “Beyond Sound 2018” with themed “4DOORS” by Heritage Space and DomDom on May 25.
This time, Hanoians have a chance to enjoy an audio-visual performance, a product of collaboration between Autonomicon - an international group represented by Denis Trusov, and new age artists from Dom Dom.
The project tells about the gloomy borderline states of the human psyche, desperate situations, unbearable and existential loneliness inherent in every human being. The project’s toolkit includes real time sound engineering, music by Autonomicon and Hanoi musicians, and a specific postmodern game with texts in both English and Vietnamese that will be transformed during the show. They are the lost and found keys to the locked doors.
Beyond Sound 2018.
The authors of the show explore the concepts of key, code, secret message and sign. With texts and words playing the role of both the key and the lock, the authors offer their own, somewhat therapeutic vision of approach to human problems.
“Beyond the Sound” is a series of concerts of experimental music aiming to reveal the latest works of Vietnamese and foreign composers/musicians. The program is curated and organized by Heritage Space and Dom Dom.
Heritage Space is a combination of a gallery, library, concert hall, co-working space, boarding room and outdoor space with the possibility of organizing exhibitions, concerts and performances, education and exchange, artists residency programs, and many other activities. Run by a team of curators, art researchers, and artists, Heritage Space is aspiring to become an intersection of individuals/groups/ organizations from a wide range of domestic and international creative fields, with a long-term goal to support and develop the creative industry in Vietnam.
Meanwhile, being a Hub for experimental music and art, Dom Dom has been created in 2012 as the first independent interdisciplinary center dedicated to Vietnamese experimental music and its collaboration with other art forms. Running by composer-musician Kim Ngoc, Dom Dom has been playing essential role in Vietnamese arts & music in this moment.
