Inland Residency is a virtual artist residency collaboration between Laking Sound Fest. and IKLECTIK that connects and supports artists from Taiwan and the UK in their creative practices. During the COVID-19 lockdown in 2020, this innovative programme brought together a group of visionary artists from different parts of the world, enabling them to collaborate and create music together through a unique virtual platform. Three years later, these artists are finally able to meet in person and perform together, and this event is a celebration of their work and the power of virtual collaboration.

Inland Reverberance invites audiences to experience the diverse and dynamic music that has emerged from the Inland Residency. From glitchy beats to field recordings, digitally manipulated voices to ambient soundscapes, this music event reflects the spirit of cross-cultural exchange, creative experimentation and new forms of artistic expression that lies at the heart of the Inland Residency.

Join us for an evening of sonic exploration and celebration, as we honour the innovative work of the Inland Residency artists and the visionary organisations that have supported their collaborative and experimental music-making.

Graduated from National Taiwan University (Social Work, BA) and Manchester Metropolitan University (Design and Art Direction, MA), Huang Ya-Nung is an interdisciplinary artist dedicated to illustration, graphic design, photography and video art. She’s also a talented musician playing “Suona” and “Guan”——traditional wind instruments.

“Body experience in the space”, “rediscovery in daily life”, “fragment collecting” are three main concepts in her art practice. Putting emphasis on ”site-specific” and “sense of place”, Ya-Nung usually spends a lot of time getting alone with the environment and utilising bodily experience to depict space. Focusing on objects ignored by people, she discovers, collects them with social awareness and revive the spaces through disassembling, collaging and interpreting.
Besides years of traditional music training, Ya-Nung is dedicated to transforming traditions in contemporary context to break the frame. She’s endeavoring to dig out possibilities of sounds and taking experiments on forms of performing art.
