International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music

Quan’s expertise designing and operating modular synthesizers delivers a musical palette that jumps between uplifting experimental soundscapes, minimal techno, and deep house. A prominent figure in the development of Vietnam’s experimental electronic music scene, the spontaneous revisions to his live, ever-evolving improvised performances provide an endlessly varied alternative to traditional loop-structured song formats.

Before the turn to electronic sonics, Quan played in rock and metal bands throughout his youth, earning a degree in Jazz guitar from the Vietnam National Music Academy in 2011. While conceiving an improvised electronic live set using a home-made modular setup, he connected with the DomDom collective in 2013—Vietnam's first interdisciplinary centre devoted to experimental music, which catapulted him to country-wide music festivals and performances. In 2016, he began a residency at Hanoi's Savage Club, one of Asia’s foundational hubs for international underground techno, and became the first Vietnamese artist showcased on a frenetic Boiler Room live set. Quan’s 2019 debut on Indigenous Electronic showcases five radiant cuts of hypnotic, slowly mutating techno, emitting the glowing warmth of an artist hitting their stride.

Quan debuts at MUTEK with a performance with his self-created, patented Quanalog modular setup. He’ll be joined by Bar Rubinstein, co-creator of the Isotone Collective, reknowned for their interactive digital scenography, adding a visual life to Quan's twinkling musical experiments.
