We went with the Big Toe Crew to Dao Anh Khanh's studio in Gia Lam a couple of weeks ago. DAK planned something crazy for after Tet - namely a 35m high bamboo structure with 500m of bridges connecting the neighboring houses. This was the stage for his contemporary music/performance art universes under the name Bridge of Sound. It was amazing from an installation/architecture point of view but on February 24 he combined both hip-hop and Hmong minority improvisational dancers - and himself of course - with wild beats from a myriad of experimental and contemporary musicians including Tri Minh, Kim Ngoc, Vu Nhat Tan, Xuan Son C-drik Kirdec to name a few. Lighting installations and video art were also done by Ngo Nhat Hoang and Phuong Vu Manh respectively.

I shot most of it with a Canon 5D Mark II. Isaak Le shot the rest with the Canon 7D, captured audio with the Zoom H4n and edited it in Sony Vegas. Dominic Blewett, from Hanoi's band The Gibbons Suburbia, made the music for the video.

The editing of the show itself is to be foreseen.
