Taking place at the Jayu Theater venue in Seoul Arts Center, the event is one of the biggest electro-acoustic music festivals in Asia and is currently in its 18th successful year.
It will aim to showcase a range of cutting-edge music created using computers, music technology and multimedia tools, with categories including taped and live performances, electro-acoustic music with instruments and audiovisual media art.
