“This is an exciting time for electronic Asian music in the UK. The quality, ambition and musical intelligence of all artists shouts volumes. Whether through a fresh approach to traditional repertoire or a desire to expresses the need to physically and psychologically place shared experiences in music; to nurture young talent or engage with new audiences, the Eastern Electronic Festival serves to remind us all of the traditions of excellence and innovation in today’s creative industry.
Our aim is to introduce some new ideas, provide a forum for artists working in abstract and non-narrative electronic motion imaging, music and sound design and secure the best line up we possibly can for our first year and we hope the festival would become a valuable addition to the city’s vibrant creative arts and entertainment calendar."
