The Theme of ICMC 2017/EMW
Hearing the Self
There is an ancient Chinese saying (by Lao Zi):大音希声，大象无形Dà yīn xī shēng,
In the vast domain of contemporary music, computer music, new media art and sound art, China is a latecomer. But in an increasingly technological and digitized world, Chinese artists, engineers and researchers are now stepping to the forefront; they hear the sound of the future within themselves. Already in the past decade, an influx of young and inspiring artists,students, engineers, and researchers have come together in Shanghai from all over the world; creating and collaborating with a vigorous style, they push forward new sounds, new music, and new technology.
At the ICMC 2017/EMW in Shanghai, we look forward to hearing you in your work about "the Sound of the Self."
