HCMC - Multimedia composer and electroacoustic music performer Luong Hue Trinh will host a multimedia concert titled “Vet” (Streaks) at the French cultural center L’Espace in Hanoi on March 16, starting at 8 p.m.

“Vet” was premiered in Trinh’s Master final project at Hamburg University of Music & Drama in 2018 and this will be the first time it is performed in Vietnam.

Vietnamese culture has been significantly influenced by Confucianism for centuries. Accordingly, the life of a woman is governed by the rule of three subordinations: to her father at home, to her husband after her marriage, and to her son after the husband’s early death.

Although the impact of Confucianism on Vietnamese culture has been blurred, especially among the younger generations, there are still things in the mind of Vietnamese people that has not been erased by modern ways of thinking and feeling.

“Vet” centers on the role and image of women through five compositions by Luong Hue Trinh. Each piece is based on a different approach.

Elements of traditional music are blended with electronic sounds, photos, videos and texts to narrate these complicated relations filled with loneliness and sorrows.

The concert is dedicated to musician SonX, who has a great influence on Luong Hue Trinh’s musical path.

Born in 1985 in Hai Duong Province, Luong Hue Trinh graduated with honors in Jazz Keyboard at the Vietnam National Academy of Music. Since 2010 she has worked in electroacoustic music, which has become her main musical focus today. From 2015 to 2018, she was awarded a DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) scholarship for the program “New Technique in Composition” and finished her Master in Multimedia Composition under the guidance of Georg Hajdu and Elmar Lampson at the Hochschule für Musik & Theater Hamburg in Germany.

Her interviews and works have been broadcasted on radio in Australia, the Czech Republic, Germany, India, Norway, Scotland, Thailand, the UK, and the U.S.

The event offers free admission.
