About

Experimental Vietnamese band Rắn Cạp Đuôi are a playful and amorphous collective of musicians, designers, filmmakers and multi-media artists known for re-imagining the sonic potential of any given instrument. Here they team up with RE:SOUNDING lead artists James Nguyen and Victoria Pham to produce an electrifying new take on an instrument thousands of years in the making.

Interweaving mythologies and imagery drawn from the decorative elements of the Đông Sơn Drum, re:sounding is a musical project that recovers the voice of this 2000-year-old instrument. This performance connects the drum’s ancient past with the cultural present of Vietnam today, and unites Rắn Cạp Đuôi’s adventurous and irreverent musical spirit with original video narrative from James Nguyen and composer Victoria Pham.

Featuring two new commissions by Rắn Cạp Đuôi couched within the dynamic online environment that Nguyen and Pham have created for re:sounding, this fertile collaboration adds a new chapter to the history of an instrument central to the historical identity of Vietnam.

This world premiere will be performed by Salina Myat, Adam Cooper-Standbury and Hamish Upton, and viewers tuning in will also be able to chat live with Nguyen and Pham as the performance unfolds, discovering even more about this fascinating cultural artefact.
