Seoul International Computer Music Festival 2018

Sep. 27 - Sep. 30, 2018 @ Jayu Theater, Seoul Arts Center

This year marked 25th anniversary of KEAMS(Korea Electro-Acoustic Music Society) founded in 1993. 25 years ago, Korean composers and scholars who had been passionate on 'electroacoustic music' were gathered, and founded this society in the time when the word was even unfamiliar to public. Next year, we opened the first Korean computer music festival with collected audio equipment and devices from each schools and individuals. Since the festival were extended and reborn internationally in 2000, SICMF continues to represent KEAMS until now.
Composers pursue novelty and creativity especially in electroacoustic music. We are already in 21st century when new technology and steep development of science push us not to stay still in the past. Big data, Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality, and Autonomous Driving are not unacquainted words anymore, and it is about to come into our life. Some might feel a sense of crisis from it, but we, artists and composers, should explore new artistic ideals with it, which will be great chance to begin new era of art.
With a humble announcement of 25th anniversary, we wish you can catch a glimpse of the new musical art of new era during SICMF this year.

1993년 창립한 한국전자음악협회는 올해로 사반세기, 25주년을 맞이합니다. 25년 전 전자음악이 생소한 시절 뜻있는 사람들이 모여 한국전자음악협회를 시작했고 그 다음해에 십시일반으로 장비를 모아 첫 컴퓨터음악제를 열었습니다. 2000년 새천년을 시작으로 서울국제컴퓨터음악제로 거듭나 오늘에 이르게 되었습니다.
일반 음악도 마찬가지지만 특히 전자음악에서는 열린 마음으로 항상 새로움을 추구합니다. 21세기를 훌쩍 뛰어넘은 현재는 과학기술발전이 너무 급속도로 발전하고 있어 우리를 과거에 안주하지 못하게 만들고 있습니다. 빅데이터와 인공지능, 가상현실, 로봇, 자율주행 자동차 등의 말이 이제는 생소하지 않고 우리 생활 속에 뛰어들고 있습니다. 어떤 사람들에게는 급변하는 이런 현상에 위기감을 느끼기도 하지만 우리 예술가들에게는 새로운 환경에 새로운 도구를 갖고 새로운 이상을 펼칠 기회가 열리고 있는 중이라고 생각합니다.
조용하게 맞는 25주년의 한국전자음악협회의 서울국제컴퓨터음악제에서 미래에 펼쳐질 새로운 음향예술세계를 엿볼 수 있는 기회를 맞이하시기를 바랍니다.
