To my shame it has been some time again that I haven’t been able to update my blog. What am I supposed to say?! May simply is the busiest month in the year of a student. Next to some really nice film projects (update will follow) I have been working on a new acousmatic music …

It’s official. I have moved to Scarborough (UK, North Yorkshire) for a while. This is also the reason it has been relatively quiet in “recording-and-email-land” for a while.
The city, its surrounding and the university are marvellous! When the weather allows, my way to university leads via the beach. For the somewhat …

On my first visit to Vietnam, I made some time to see a performance in a water puppet theatre in Saigon. Puppetry has a long tradition in Asia; the one from Indonesia, Wayang, might be one of the most famous ones. Despite its long tradition, it seems to become one more of the disappearing art …

The first time I saw a building of the Caodaists, I almost mistook it for a Christian church. With their two church towers in front, and the long main building behind, they tend to look like small Notre-Dames, if not for their shiny dark yellow colour, charmingly decorated balconies and windows, and especially, the striking presence of the blue. On the outside, it is predominantly used for the Divine Eye between, and a picture of the sky on each tower. A few clouds together with the sun, or on one tower with the moon instead.

Vietnam, mainly because of its history, knows two main directions of Buddhism: Mahayana and Theravada. Next to these two, some small quantities of sects can be found, which have split from the main directions even as late as the 20th century. Like in other Buddhist traditions all over Asia, the one in Vietnam carries a strong coloring of local habits and rituals, too.

Tiu cảnh is an instrument of the Viet, which I have also found in the pagodas. It is played in pairs; two different pitches locking into each other in complemetary rhythms. Tiu Cảnh is mainly used in Chầu Vǎn orchestras (ritual songs), Bát âm orchestras (an orchestra consiting of eight different …
