The “Sound + Music = ?” show is intended to lead the audience into the world of music and sound that the participating artists will create. It enables the audience to enjoy music in their own way and feel vibrations of the work passing through the ears, into the heart and the brain in a personal way.

The participating artists are representative faces who are pursuing the discovery and creating their own new definitions of what is interesting music. What they do is new, different and experimental, more open than the way of making mainstream music, so it will allow the audience to explore and widen the boundaries of music.

With an aim to connect and increase understanding and empathy between the artists and the audience, the series will combine performances and talks, sharing, questions and answers about the creative process.

The opening show will feature four young artists: Tuan Ni, Huong DonNa, Hoai Anh and Bui Vu Thanh Truc. Their solo, duo and trio performances use monochord, violin, flute, electronic devices and objects.

The event is free and not suitable for children under 5 years old.
