Sponsored by the Taipei Artist Village, Jinyao Lin is a new generation artist - being both a composer and video artist. His works include music pieces, digital installation and drama. His exhibition Digital Life features two works: Tracks and Auto Music Machine.

Tracks examines the idea of everyone living on their own tracks, sometimes colliding with others and sometimes avoiding others. It depicts how regular patterns of life construct a society like planets in the universe. Collision events create harmonics and, with this, the synchronisation of a mystery atmosphere appears.

Automatic Music Machine generates music and video made by Pure Data, a dataflow programming language. In the video, the connected pixels will find its next step until there are steps no more. It then generates the Baroque style of music where a “counter point” technique is developed. The music and the video repeatedly played, lead to new music and graphics as every step is a random direction.

Jinyao Lin learned composition from the Music Department at Taipei National University of the Art. After his bachelor degree, he obtained a Masters of Fine Art from The Graduate Institute of Tech-Art. He is now a PhD candidate at National Taiwan University’s Graduate Institute of Networking and Multimedia, Image and Vision Lab. In 2010, he created an interactive multimedia theatre, “Distortion City”, which was given acclaimed reviews. In 2011 he went to Lyon, France as an in-residence artist from DAC Taiwan and had his work "Tracks" published in Opera Lyon.
