What is I'mPULSE?

I’mPULSE is an initiative by the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) to nurture the development of innovative methods and practices in music through the empowerment of young musicians from Asia and Europe, and the encouragement of continuous dialogue amongst them.

I’mPULSE began as an Asia-Europe music workshop in the Philippines in 2005, connecting traditional musicians from Asia with classical musicians from Europe. At the end of that year, I’mPULSE also gathered traditional singers in Ireland. In 2006, ASEF co-organised a programme for Asian and European DJ’s in Beijing, focusing on comprehensive digital music experimentation. I’mPULSE continues to be a unique platform for multilateral artistic exchanges between musicians of both regions.

This year’s I’mPULSE, focused on DUB music, is co-organised by ASEF and the Clandestino Festival.  Both organisations share the goal of encouraging dialogue and enhancing collaboration and facilitating experimentation opportunities for artists. I’mPULSE brings together 25 professionals (young artists, VJ’s, lecturers and curators) from 16 countries in Asia and Europe for a series of closed-door workshops and rehearsals. Participants of I’mPULSE will then bring the fusion of ideas and their musical exploration to the public through performances during the Clandestino Festival.

You are invited to explore the rhythms and sounds of Asia and Europe in Göteborg from 7 to 10 June 2007!

Asia-Europe Foundation

The Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) seeks to promote better mutual understanding and closer cooperation between the people of Asia and Europe through greater intellectual, cultural, and people-to-people exchanges.  These exchanges include conferences, lecture tours, workshops, seminars and the use of web-based platforms. The major achievement of ASEF is the establishment of permanent bi-regional networks focused on areas and issues that help to strengthen Asia-Europe relations. Established in February 1997 by the partners of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM), ASEF is the only permanent physical institution of the ASEM process.  ASEF works in partnership with other public institutions and civil society actors to ensure its work is broad-based and balanced among the partner countries.   

The Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) is an informal process of dialogue and cooperation. It brings together Austria, Belgium, Brunei, Cambodia, China, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Laos, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Malta, Myanmar, The Netherlands, The Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Thailand, United Kingdom, Vietnam, and the European Commission. In 2007, ASEM will further grow to include Bulgaria, Romania, India, Pakistan, Mongolia, and ASEAN Secretariat.
