C-LAB Sound Festival: Diversonics

The biennial C-LAB Sound Festival: Diversonics originated in 2019; Taiwan Contemporary Culture Lab and IRCAM Centre-Pompidou co-founded C-LAB Taiwan Sound Lab (TSL) and launched the 1st C-LAB Sound Festival to explore the diverse dimensions and infinite possibilities of contemporary sound art and technology applications through audacious cross-domain connections and intense international cooperation. Following more than two years of practice accumulation, artistic experimentation, education and promotion, software/hardware technology application, and industry-academic collaboration, a blueprint is gradually drawn for exploring diverse facets of soundscape and engaging actors in relevant fields to jointly forge a network involving acoustics, technologies, arts, humanities, and social life.

In the context of vigorous mutations in cross-domain technology-based art, the 2nd C-LAB Sound Festival: Diversonics in 2021 upholds the spirit of sound innovation and experimentation, assisting and linking cross-disciplinary co-production projects; for its five programs, Contemporary Selection, Film Concerts, Sounds of Contemporary Dance, Installations and Performance, and Academy, artists and teams were invited to co-produce 18 repertoires, totaling more than 90 individual works. Artists and performers from various fields manifest the diversity of cross-domain contemporary music and sound art, and provoking indefinite new forms and content of performance.
