07.05.2015 – Double Date: Parallel Asteroid + RRR

Parallel Asteroid has the honour of inviting RRR for a cozy double date at Donau 115. Come by for free improvisation by our double duo date!

Two musicians, one from a classical music background, the other a jazz musician. Contemporary music and Improvisation is where they converged and found their common interest. Trained in different schools of music, they both want to explore new sounds, new combinations of textures, styles and means of expression.

is a mask and suit wearing, synth and bass playing Berlin based free improvising duo. Blending shadows, lights and sounds with instantaneous communication, they dig together at something bright and wonderful, often turning up dark or silly things in the process. Primary influences include morse code, dogs and science fiction.

Liz Kosack – synth
Dan Peter Sundland – bass


Also playing this evening is the Marc Doffey quintet!

22.04.2015 – Closing concert of the workshop with Parallel Asteroid and Domdom Hanoi at Institut Francais Hanoi

This time Parallel Asteroid returns to Vietnam with the invitation of Domdom Center of experimental music. After the intensive workshop and practice sessions with young composers of the advanced class from Domdom, the result of this adventurous project will be presented in unique concert for the audience of Hanoi.

Do not miss out on this special concert experience with the Duo Parallel Asteroid and the talented young composers of Domdom.

The young composers of Domdom are from different music backgrounds. Some were trained in classical music, others studied Vietnamese traditional music, some others are self-taught composers. The educational courses of Domdom encourage and enable them to absorb and integrate aesthetical concepts of experimental music as well as develop their skills and necessary knowledge in performing experimental music. They became and will become the positive creative forces of the experimental music scene of Vietnam.
