MIJI Concert Series #40 – Parallel Asteroid, Ake, Zhao Cong, Zhu Wenbo

2016/10/21 (Fri) @ 20:00 - 22:00

The MIJI Concert Series is back, for another experimental music performance taking place in a long rectangular room. This time, Subjam brings us 3 experimental sets: a duo by Vietnamese/Austrian duo Parallel Asteroid; another duo by Ake + Zhao Cong; and finally a trio featuring Parallel Asteroid and Zhu Wenbo.

About the performers

Parallel Asteroid

Parallel Asteroid connects experimental, acoustic and electronic sounds with the aesthetics of contemporary music. Their performance is a re-search into the relationship between electronic and organic sounds, creating abstract beauty when these worlds collide. Their music is a result of introspection and the trust to give in to the fragility of the moment where ideas crystalize into abstract shapes and textures. The musicians are the Vietnamese pianist and synthesizer player – Lan Cao and Gregor Siedl from Austria on prepared saxophone, gamecalls and tubes.
Parallel Asteroid have been touring extensively in Europe, Japan, Brasil and Vietnam. They are currently on a tour of China.

NB: Parallel Asteroid will be back on Oct.22 for a stupendous workshop! More info HERE
