Vietnamese avant garde collective.
Rắn Cạp Đuôi has been at the forefront of sound art and experimental music in Saigon, Vietnam, since their formation in 2015. Their diverse performances have ranged from a nonstop 48-hour performance in a local gallery to a three-drum improvisation at Nhạc Gãy’s Boiler Room, showing their anachronistic, ever changing approach to music. Rắn Cạp Đuôi is in a constant state of flux, deconstruction and rebirth, resulting in chaotic sheets of sound and compositions, which border on violence and beauty. They draw on inspiration from all kinds of avant garde music, hyperpop, ambient, viet-pop and traditional vietnamese music, all finding its place in their prolific output.
Their newest release, *1, was released earlier this year. Is a fine entry point to the world of Rắn Cạp Đuôi, taking the listener from frantic electronic soundscapes to surprising, calm moments. This autumn, they will tour in Europe for the very first time, and during Oslo World, they will perform in intimate surroundings at Kafé Hærverk.
