International Exchange
2019 Manifeste Festival:Artistic Exchanges

In order to offer Taiwanese professional sound artists a favorable platform of international exchange, the Taiwan Contemporary Culture Lab (C-LAB) specifically launched the “2019 CREATORS International Exchange Project – IRCAM” in close collaboration with the Institute for Research and Coordination in Acoustics / Music (IRCAM), a globally prestigious sound research institution in France. This call for application became a focus of attention among practitioners in related fields and received a total of 43 entries. Six sound art practitioners, including WANG Chung-Kun, LIN Yi-Cheng, WU Ping-Sheng, Min-Chi Micky YANG, LIAO Hai-Ting, and CHENG I-Lly were selected.

The ManiFeste-2019 organized by the IRCAM is the highlight of this project. It is a gala event featuring spectacular, transdisciplinary performances of music, drama, dance, digital art, visual arts, and technological innovation. It also provides the participants with a golden opportunity to observe and grasp the cross-boundary collaboration and modus operandi behind the scenes.
