Day 1 – Dun even wants to share : D and dun even know how to save file
Just a memoir of bushland on my trip to the outback 3 years ago. The semi-desert in Alice Spring and around Urulu was one of the most striking scenes I’d seen in my life.
Nothing is permanent even massive landscape and prosperous kingdoms. Life keeps moving on and adapting to many forms. If it’s nature we can’t resist, there’s no use for regret in our past lives.
Sound: Meditative cave made with Noise Sculptor
Visual: Made with Stylegan2 model on Artbreeder
Well, it was a fun time one morning, I was just wanted to use the rest animation frame left from my Artbreeder subscription and that was how this video came up after 1 or 2 hours of me in the mood for daily practice.
I and a couple of friends in Paris planned to contribute something for Nổ Cái Bùm, the one and only magical contemporary art festival in Việt Nam so we made some songs together. My painter friend Segolene, Damien her boyfriend, and Bảo, the founder of NCB, and even Đồng Lan came up with 3 songs with Việt vocal. I also did a poem about my rough time in Huế this Tết due to mental breakdown from culture gap in the countryside. Also, apparently, Bảo couldn’t make it home since there was no commercial plane from France to Vietnam during the pandemic, and yes, Paris was in 3rd lockdown. Everything was postponed until September 2021. Meanwhile, in Vietnam, some new cases happened and NCB also got delayed. Unfortunately!
The lyric of this song was from Bảo’s poem about her sentiments abroad away from home during Tet, the most important time for family just like Christmas. I was pretty much happy with the cheerfulness in this visual but Segolene and Bao prefered something more original not classical paintings with AI technique. Anyway, I still loved it so I decided to post it here hehe.
I find salvation in daily art practice. Make art is not only the want but the vital need to function my life in proper way. It walked me through a hard broke-up, it connects me with more isolated souls out there, it helped me out during the depressing lockdown due to COVID-19, and it calmed my mind after recent loss when a friend decided to take her life.
For further understanding of the concept behind this performance, please kindly have look at this presentation.

Live coding experimental sound performance by Nguyen Con Nguoi in ByteBeat
I was playing VJ on the second projector in Resolume 6. The visual was created by Touchdesigner, a node based visual programming.
A VJ (video jockey) mixes video arts or video loops that could be her/his own creations but usually sampled from movies, music videos, available loops online, animation. The key is in the mix and the correspondence in style with the music that is being played. While the visual artist is more like a musician, playing his/her own compositions, sometimes sampling, but with his/her own style, message, universe.
I can actually be a VJ and visual artist with real-time media by Touchdesigner which allows me to become more like a performer and less like a digital painter. Since the old way to create visual is you edit the scene frame by frame and it takes tons of time to render.
For Nguyen, instead of prepared sound card and a lot of instruments to play noise, she could perform in handy way with Coding program and people could saw in real-time what she was doing in her laptop.
