Call for Submissions, ICMC/EMW 2017

The 43rd International Computer Music Conference (ICMC 2017) and 6th Electronic Music Week (EMW) will be held in Shanghai, China, organized by the Shanghai Conservatory of Music. The event will take place from October 16th to 20th.

Conference Theme

Hearing the Self

There is an ancient Chinese saying (by Lao Zi):大音希声,大象无形Dà yīn xī shēng,dà xiàng wú xíng (The best music and  art lay in silence and abstraction)!We think: in silence, we hear the real sound within ourselves.  However, in a modern world of unceasing innovation, we continue to open ourselves to new music and images within and beyond our senses, searching for “the Sound of the Self.”

At the ICMC/EMW 2017 in Shanghai, we welcome you and look forward to hearing you in your work about “the Sound of the Self.”
