Seven artists from Japan, Vietnam, Australia and Switzerland performing in six venues in Hoà Bìhn, Hà Nội, Huế and Sài Gòn
KAZEHITO SEKI (JP) is an artist using amplification for voice. Voiz set is played just with one or two microphones and NO electronic FX. Working on the sound produced from the vocal organ in broader and more concrete sense, gives new meaning to what voice can do such as singing, talking, etc. The wide spectrum flickers in subtle ambience, intense silence and brutal harsh noise within a microsecond.
Self Toxication is another project that abstracts the “voice” and forms into deeper levels of sound. The toxin is over amplified in stereo channels which oscillate between sound system and the physical voice, is cut into parts and messes up at the top speed of harsh noise.
. . . (CH) Since his twenties, the being behind the soundless moniker . . . (also known as Nikola H. Mounoud) process in real time; analog, digital and hybrid feedbacks in order to produce unique, powerful and highly dynamic live performances where irresponsible noise, unexpected dense sonic blasts, total non-sense and deep irrationality meets allowing the audience to absorb the unleashed raw beauty of the frequencies wrath.
