Hanoi-Berlin Experimental Music Meeting is a unique cultural encounter of ten skilled composer-performers, five from each city. The ensemble explores the variety of backgrounds and approaches to experimental and improvised music existent in the group, focusing on string instruments and percussion – from traditional western and Vietnamese to custom-built instruments and the use of extended techniques – combined with analog and digital electronics. In the concert smaller constellations from all acoustic or all electronic duos to electro-acoustic quintets will alternate with the full ensemble. This event will be connected to their mutual exchange project, resulting in two concerts in Berlin and Copenhagen (July 2016) and then in Hanoi (October 2016), supported by the Goethe Institut Hanoi and Initiative Neue Musik Berlin e.V.
