This venture brings together Toy Satellite/OPENChannel and Jinbonet, Seoul in collaboration with Art Center Nabi and in association with the Australian Embassy Seoul.

Says Garton: “We aim to establish a bi-lingual iCommons site, with support from, that will feed content to various resources being developed for a collaborative sound and video performance to be staged in Seoul during the late quarter of the year (October 1-2, TBC).”

It is anticipated that the performances, conducted by some of the most established and well respected electronic composers in Australia along with Korean artistes, both emergent electronic artistes and traditional musicians, will assist in promoting CC initiatives in both countries.
