Hanoise is a blog started by jrg_one in 2012 that provides a somewhat regular survey and reflection on the left-field arts scene in Hanoi, focusing primarily on experimental music, sound art and video by artists either residing in or passing through the city.
I’m hoping to grow Hanoise into something more than it currently is. In addition to the survey of upcoming and past shows, I’m looking to also begin incorporating detailed interviews with experimentalists and sound artists who both live in Hanoi and visit here to perform. An artist guide and events calendar are also in the works. I also want to create a compendium of links to various artist, venue and cultural news websites spanning both Hanoi’s experimental music scene and the larger arts scene in Vietnam. Keep your eyes and ears open here in the near future.
