Event Details

Residual features Peter Knight and Dung Nguyen who are both members of the acclaimed cross-cultural jazz ensemble Way Out West. In this project the pair develop unique approaches tocombining Vietnamese and Western music elements in a contemporary setting employing innovative extended techniques applied to traditional Vietnamese instruments and trumpet along with spontaneous electro- acoustic composition.

Dung's instruments have a range of possibilities that are rarely explored. In particular the single string dan bau offers amazing possibilities with its indeterminate pitch and unearthly timbre. Similarly the 16-string zither, the dan tranh, has a range of possibilties rarely explored. In Residual Dung explores several unconventional tuning systems he has developed as well as a range of preparations for the instrument creating a range of tonal and percussive effects. Since the formation of Residual in 2009 the duo has appeared at Brisbane Festival, The Quiet Music Festival (Melbourne) and Darwin Festival.

Residual is out now on Parentheses Records (Perth/Belgium)
