The Internet has been an agent of huge change in the music scene. Innovations affecting how music is produced and how people listen to music have led to new musical cultures online and cultural influences that transcend national and territorial borders.

The “Bordering Practice: Call Back from Hanoi-Pop & Electronic Sounds in Asia” program is part of the Japan Foundation Asia Center’s media art exchange program launched in 2016. It encourages interchange among the next generation of talent with a focus on technology-driven creativity and the electronic music scene that has witnessed exciting growth in Asia through collaborations between local artists.

Participating in the program, Hanoi will host a series of events on March 15 and 16 in the form of talks, workshops, and a showcase that aims to facilitate exchange between Hanoi’s next generation of musicians and listeners as well as musicians based in Tokyo and Manila.

Meanwhile, the performance in HCMC is held at The Light House in District 1 today, March 14, starting at 7 p.m.
