Residual features Peter Knight and Dung Nguyen who are both members of the acclaimed cross-cultural jazz ensemble Way Out West. In this project the pair develop unique approaches to combining Vietnamese and Western music elements in a contemporary setting employing innovative extended techniques applied to traditional Vietnamese instruments and trumpet along with spontaneous electroacoustic composition.

* “Falling into an utterly genre-less wormhole” (Cyclic Defrost).

*“…Peter Knight, not unlike Miles Davis, never fails to push the limits of his creativity” (Limelight).

* “The journey is pure and lasts only 40 minutes. But they are 40 minutes of finesse” (Jazzques, Belgium).

*“Residual is a collaboration in a far wider sense than simply being the work of two performers. The pair weaves an interesting counterpoint between East and West, human and inhuman, old and new” (Real Time).
