Apologies for the last-minute notice of the rescheduled “Siestes Électroniques” concert. It’s on this afternoon at Reunification Park and features experimental electronic music from Vietnam and France.
Artists include Vincent Moon, who is also running a workshop with The Onion Cellar next week, ethnic minority music field recording artist Laurent Jeanneau and 8-bit sonic terrorist Jean Nipon.
Representing the Vietnamese scene are Vu Nhat Tan (Hanoi) and Nguyen Hong Giang (HCMC).
Looks like a great way to spend a free afternoon in the park…for free!

From L’Espace and French Embassy:
Let’s wander around the park, lean against a chair or lie down on grass, closes your eyes and discover sounds and world music.
“Siestes Électroniques” (Electronic Naps) is a special program, developed in 2011 in Quai Branly Museum to enhance the value of Sound Heritage which is extremely rich.The concert wish to convey this value to a diverse audience in the hope that they can understand and appreciate the historical and cultural benefit of the sound treasure.
This is an event for experimental music which is adventurous and daring. However, experimental music is not necessarily electronic and contemporary music. Let’s forget about busy lives, pause for a second and open up your heart to enjoy the magical music. The mixture of electronic music, experimental music as well as Vietnam traditional music will enable the audience to relax and experience.
