www.vincentmoon.comVincent Moon is a wanderer, independent filmmaker and sound researcher devoted to the exploration of global music-making practices, from experiments in electronic music to local sacred rituals involving or centred on sound.
Sufism in Chechnya or Ethiopia, Ayahuasca rituals in Peru, trance in Brazil, Jathilan in Indonesia and Len Dong in Vietnam—the broadness of Moon’s work has relied for decades on his own travels and experiences rather than on academics, and allows for thematic connections across eras and worlds. Commissioned by CTM, his multi-screen film installation will enlace themes of timeworn trance rituals and the sacred in modern life into a synthesis of new findings.
Directly following the installation opening, Vincent Moon will also present a performative lecture about his work, “Híbridos”, at the nearby HAU1 for the CTM 2016 Opening Concert this same evening.

Over the past ten years, he has traveled around the world, discovering and recording everything from Sufism in Chechnya and Ethiopia, Ayahuasca rituals in Peru, trance in Brazil, Jathilan in Indonesia and Len Dong in Vietnam.
