[SIGNAL IN NOISE]
CD Release event and Artist’s talk at Dom Dom
Time: 19h30, August 30th, 2013
Location: 3rd Floor, Block A, 9 Tran Thanh Tong, Hanoi

Come to the release event of double CD Signal in Noise of The Six Tones, a Vietnamese-Swedish experimental music ensemble. Building on a concept of mutual learning, musical traditions from Viet Nam and Europe are brought together into music that aims to reach beyond a mere collage-like superimposition of elements and strive for a more complex and experimentally oriented sound.

Signal in Noise is a double CD with The Six Tones and guests from the Hanoi scene of traditional and experimental music. Recorded in Hanoi at Kiên Quyết Studio, the CD is now released on dB Productions, Sweden. The group is now in Hanoi working at Dom Dom and invites the audience to an event with live music and conversations about a music project that bridges many distinct cultural and musical traditions.

Since 2006, The Six Tones has been bringing art music from Vietnam and Europe together, touring as an instrumental music group or in music theatre projects, and working with choreographers. We play traditional Vietnamese music in hybrid settings for Western stringed instruments and traditional Vietnamese instruments. We improvise in traditional and experimental Western idioms and also commission new music by composers in Asia as well as in Western countries. The Six Tones are Nguyễn Thanh Thủy and Ngô Trà My and the Swedish guitarist Stefan Östersjö (also playing many other stringed instruments). Since the project started, we have been collaborating with the composer and improviser Henrik Frisk, who has both composed works for the ensemble as well as toured with the group as a lap top improviser. The name of the group, emanating from a composition by Henrik, relates to the fact that the Vietnamese language is a tonal language using six tones or intonations. Building on a concept of mutual learning, musical traditions from Viet Nam and Europe are brought together into music that aims to reach beyond a mere collage-like superimposition of elements and strive for a more complex and experimentally oriented sound.

The four guests on the CD are Lê Phổ, a leading proponent of traditional flute music in Vietnam, and currently the head of the department for traditional music at the Vietnam national Academy of Music and three key figures from the experimental music scene: Trí MinhVũ Nhật Tân and Trần Thị Kim Ngọc.
