Two Taiwanese music promotion companies — Neutron Innovation (中子文化) and THE WALL MUSIC (這牆音樂) — will be participating in the upcoming New Music Seminar in New York.
Established in the 1980s, the New Music Seminar is an annual music trade and conference similar to France's MIDEM. It brings together over 8,000 representatives and copyright brokers from roughly 35 nations each year and takes a special interest in promoting indie bands from around the world.
Neutron Innovation, the management company behind the independent music venue Legacy in Huashan 1914 Creative Park, has spent its recent years in developing a digital platform for promoting Taiwan's musical and lyrical creativity. StreetVoice.com allows for independent uploads and has successfully introduced Taiwan's unique sounds by circumventing physical barriers.
THE WALL, the operator of three eponymous live houses across Taiwan, has been a long-time host and collaborator of visiting international bands. Credited with reviving Taiwan's live house culture, THE WALL's reputation has warranted mentioned by media reports in the New York magazine and The New York Times.
Taglined "transforming the music business,” the 2015 New Music Seminar will take place from June 21 to 23 at the Wyndham New Yorker Hotel (481 8th Avenue New York). Find out more at http://newmusicseminar.com/.
