Nguyễn + Transitory is composed of Nguyễn Baly and Tara Transitory. Their work crosses disciplines of sound, performance, and installation. Together, the two attempt to approach sound, synthesis, noise, rhythm, and performance from a less colonial lens. Looking into how frequencies, the physicality of producing sounds and its incidental vibrations relate to cognitive memories, stored emotions and catharsis.

Their practice also involves efforts to empirically learn more about various Southeast Asian + diaspora queer existences and invisibilized histories.

Nguyễn + Transitory have performed internationally at Siam Museum (Bangkok), Lava Film Festival (Kraków), Museum of Modern Art (Warsaw) and SAVVY Contemporary (Berlin) amongst others. Their immersive site-specific installation sound performance »Bird Bird, Touch Touch, Sing Sing«, initially developed at HAU Hebbel am Ufer, was presented at CTM Festival 2019 (Berlin), WORM (Rotterdam), Submerge Digital Arts Festival 2019 (Bristol) and PACT Zollverein (Essen) in its work-in-progress form. The premiere of »Bird Bird, Touch Touch, Sing Sing« will take place on the 08th of September 2019 at Serralves Museum (Porto), further performances will be presented at Ultima Festival (Oslo), STUK (Leuven) and HeK (Basel). Currently they also developing the work »Hi Hi Future, Bye Bye« together with Katharina Hauke which will premiere in fall at silent green Kulturquartier (Berlin).

Nguyễn Baly is a non-binary, Vietnamese-German diasporic sound and performance artist who works and lives in Berlin. Baly combines avant-garde art, experimental music and post-colonialism in their work.

Tara Transitory aka One Man Nation, makes work which some consider art, some consider music and some consider trash. Clearly, it never quite fits into neatly demarcated categories. She is trans, nomadic and is looking into sound, performance, and collective trance at the intersections of gender, noise, and ritual.
