Hanoi street music with folk trio Relentless Muscle.

 

Scott Ezell began writing songs...

...as soon as he knew three guitar chords. He spent years as a folky singer-songwriter, then, influenced by traditional Chinese and Indian music, began composing ambient instrumental music with acoustic instruments including banjo, mbiras, flutes, harmonicas, percussion, tonkori (from the Ainu), and more. In the early 2000s he built a driftwood recording studio in an old farmhouse on Taiwan's Pacific Coast, where he composed and produced "Ocean Hieroglyphics." In Hanoi in 2010 he began performing and recording improvised experimental music with Vietnamese composer Vu Nhat Tan.
