WRITHER is project solo experimental noise from the city of Ho Chi Minh (Vietnam), create by the musician Nguyen Hong Giang at beginning 2009. Sometimes analog, sometimes digital equipment for recording and performance… Always choice “simple- free-as loud as possible”… WRITHER means "quằn quại" on vietnames. While I am listening the different releases put on his Bandcamp, I realize little by little that his style is more agressive, fast and saturated in the beggining of his musical career and (fortunately) his lasts albums are moderatly close to ambient / drone. It´s a kind of slow noise, dirty industrial sounds and very old electronic music. I don´t know but maybe in the future this artist will do music similar to glitch, minimal or even techno. Nowadays I am sure we have the best fruits, not extremly harsh nor empty and sometimes bored ambient. Well of course is important and also very curious to mention Nguyen Hong Giang currently lives in Ho Chi Minh (old Saigon city) in the south of Vietnam. Firstly I thought he was the only one experimentalist musician in that country, but after I discovered a huge blog with tonnes of reviews, articles, free downloads, etc. of vietnames artists.
