The library is a place to learn things you don't know.

It's a place to find out you aren't the only person who thinks like that!

To realise that there is so much inside this world that has been outside of your world for so long.

It's a place to be quiet.

To be humble.

To learn.

Here there is endless information

Welcome to the information age. Everything is accessible. Nothing makes sense.

So come with us on a journey to the darkside of the universe, to the deepest oceans of truth, to the underground of knowledge and understanding. MUSIC!

about: knowledge and understanding

This section is going to be developed by people who are from and/ or love saigon <3 for sharing their knowledge and understanding with you...

music tools table

DJ serato serato is a similar software to rekordbox for organising music, useful for DJs, but you are probably going to have to decide which one you prefer and only use that one. It gets messy when you have a lot of tracks and want to use both! Do your research (✖╭╮✖) needs more wizdom!!

Try stuff out yourself. And once you've got started, look around, ask for advice, or maybe sign up to some courses either online or in-person. There's plenty of courses and stuff going on in Saigon (once we're out of lockdown).

about: truth

This section contains lots of words - jargon - confusing words, words for only those people who are 'in-the-know'.

It's hard to discover 'the' truth, and its hard to know about whatever you don't know. When you start searching for truth, you have to start by getting comfortable with being uncomfortable. The search for the truth and your own truth requires patience, making mistakes and searching for answers, even if you don't find them.
