In his live performances Naing Naing mostly uses a MIDI guitar to trigger both melodic concrete sounds and rythmic patterns. He also occasionally plays real guitar over a backing track entirely made of concrete sounds, although instruments like guitar (and especially synthetizer) were banned from his debut album. Miss Maya, singer of Tear or a Doll sings some tracks of his live set. Some of the sounds used by Naing Naing as musical instruments include: frogs & toads, ice cubes in a glass, toothbrushing, diesel generator, crickets, bird calls, washing machine, wasp buzz, whip, duck & goose, pig, dog, sheep and many other animal sounds, dentist drill, pneumatic drill, wind, rain, eating an apple, clock, trains... François aka Naing Naing has collaborated with several artists : he appears on records by Costes, Cosmic Wurst and Wide Open Cage. A NN live album recorded in France was released in 2011 by US-based Sleepy Mammal Sounds Records. Naing Naing has announced the release of two new albums "EF1" and "EF2".
