SCREENING OF HANOI ECLIPSE

Hanoi Eclipse: The Music of Dai Lam Linh (56 mins, 2010) Directed by Barley Norton, published by Documentary Educational Resources. In Vietnamese with English Subtitles. http://www.gold.ac.uk/music/staff/norton/ http://www.der.org/films/hanoi-eclipse.html  Dom Dom is delighted to present a screening of Hanoi Eclipse: The Music of Dai Lam Linh, followed by a discussion with London-based film director and ethnomusicologist Barley Norton. Hanoi Eclipse: The Music of Dai Lam Linh follows the challenges faced by the groundbreaking and controversial Vietnamese band Dai Lam Linh, while rehearsing and performing in their hometown of Hanoi. It shows how the band came together to create a unique form of popular music, which is both international in outlook and rooted in Vietnamese traditions and aesthetics. Followed by scandal at every turn for their experimental sound and their use of sexually explicit lyrics, the band have dared to flout taboos and fight for their creative freedom. Dai Lam Linh was established by the male composer, Dai, an ex-soldier who fought in the Second Indochina War (known as the “Vietnam War”), and two female singers, Lam and Linh.

A TALK WITH THE SIX TONES

We would like to invite you to join an artist’s talk of The Six Tones   Free entrance. Register at https://goo.gl/forms/sAEExL5HKA7c1qB82 Item fulltext   The name of the group, emanating from a piece bywith bikes Henrik Frisk, relates to the fact that the Vietnamese is a tonal language using six tones or intonations. For the Vietnamese members of the group, the six tones of their language is a foundation for communication within their culture. For most Westerners, such a language can only be learnt with much effort. Traditional Vietnamese music is closely related to theatre and its musical forms draw highly on the tonal structure of the language. Obviously, a text set to music cannot have any melodic structure but the melodic lines must follow the tones that give the words their meaning....
