Taiwanese student Chen Ying-jung (陳映蓉) will present her latest work ― "Trick of Goblin” ― at the 2015 International Computer Music Conference in Texas on Sept. 29.
Hosted by the Center for Experimental Music & Intermedia at the University of North Texas this year, the conference themed "Looking Back, Looking Forward” will explore the history of computer music and guide its future trajectory with music concerts and paper presentations in relation to the theme.
Chen is a postgraduate student at the National Chiao Tung University, majoring in Sound and Music Innovative Technologies. She has won a range of prizes at international contests and her electronic music pieces such as "Mirage,” "Fluctuation,” and "Firefly Secret” were accepted by international music festivals in Beijing, New York, and Athens.
"Trick of Goblin” is a work inspired by Chinese war drums and Japanese taiko drums, in which Chen intends to bring a different immersion experience by using various instruments. Her work will be presented alongside 10 other participants in one of the 31 concerts.
Curated by the International Computer Music Association, the conference is an annual event that brings together computer music practitioners from around the world. It welcomes musical works spanning solo instruments and electronics, ensembles and electronics, inter-media performances, and club electro.
Additional events, including workshops and performances, will also be held during the two-week conference. For more information, please visit http://icmc2015.unt.edu/.
