In the making of Inside/Outside qualitative analysis constituted an important factor in the artistic process. In May 2012, The Six Tones and Marie Fahlin started coding video of traditional Vietnamese music performance in TV shows. The working sessions took place at the Electronic Music Studios (EMS) in Stockholm by using Hyper Research, a software for computer-aided qualitative analysis and resulted in a little catalogue of gesture types that in turn became the material for the choreography which was developed in workshops in August 2012. Obviously, the pre-understanding of the material of each member was very different. While Stefan and Marie, the two westerners taking part in the coding sessions, had little or no previous knowledge of this phenomenon, Trà My and I had been performing in such TV shows for many years. The selected videos contained some performances in which Trà My or I, or both of us, participated, but there were also many videos in which we did not take part. Hence, this time, we would not only create an analysis of our own performances. This entailed that most of the analysis would have to be carried out through third-person perspective observations. Further, the analysis was carried out at the very beginning of our collaboration with Marie Fahlin, and therefore, the negotiation of a joint understanding in the coding of the videos also became a way of defining the aims and means of the artistic project, as well as simply beginning to get to know each other. The process of making Inside/Outside surely emphasized how different the cultural understandings of gender issues were. Throughout the working period, Marie and Stefan were curiously trying to figure out what the core issues were and what could be the proper way to address them in artistic form in a Vietnamese context.
