在台灣雜誌界極具原創與實驗精神的《白木耳》雜誌 (White Fungus) 最新一期(第15期)以26的頁的巨幅專文報導台灣聲音藝術先驅林其蔚，2016年中於台北獨立音樂聖地「這牆」(The Wall)以直接邀請前衛樂團結合新刊發行派對的大型展演，400張門票全場爆滿。《白木耳》自2004年起由居於台中的紐西蘭兄弟 Ron 和 Mark Hanson 共同經營，以深具影響力的嶄新觀點，發行全球各地，致力發掘少見的台灣當代藝術專題，於2012年獲紐約當代美術館（MoMA）選為千禧年雜誌。目前他們更專注於著迷的台灣聲音藝術，催生出另一本專以台灣聲音藝術為主的雜誌《潛意識餐廳》(The Subconscious Restaurant)。
秦相太(Jin Sangtae)為南韓實驗音樂家，受日本前衛音樂家大友良英(Otomo Yoshihide)啟發，於2008年開始每個月在自己的超小辦公室舉辦晚間即興音樂會，命名為 dotolim，為韓國第一個即興/實驗音樂的表演空間。在累積長達連續5年的小型音樂會以及於網路上發表表演影音紀錄後，秦相太發起音樂節「 Dotolimpic」，結合各方財力與資源，在沒有藝文補助的情況下，成功連續兩年舉辦來自世界各國，超過30位的樂手即興共演，為期三天的音樂節。
Ron 和 Mark Hanson兄弟各有全職的工作，持續不懈地維持《白木耳》的出版超過十年；秦相太經營dotolim亦將近十年。這場分享活動除了兩個組織的介紹外，也將與大家討論，是怎樣的信念、動力、與經驗，使他們在全職工作與生活之餘，能長期堅持的經營下去，而且還越搞越大？
Organisational sharing from dotolim (South Korea) and White fungus (Taichung/NZ) –
what drives the survival spirit, when running a music festival by 1 person, or a magazine by 2?
The event starts with the sharings from Taichung residents Ron and Mark Hanson, the New Zealander brothers of White Fungus; also musician Jin Sangtae from Seoul, South Korea who runs dotolim (anchor rising). They share how and why they continue to organise experimental music / arts performances, and publications and other events when there is no core funding support for the organisations.
White Fungus started in 2004, as a photocopied magazine, to currently a magazine that is distributed throughout the globe; they also extend their passion to showcasing experiential live performances. Ron writes and Mark designs, they raised White Fungus with both of their other full time jobs. In 2016 they presented a performance and magazine launch at the Wall, Taipei, which sold more than 400 tickets with a full house audience.
Jin Sangtae as an experimental musician from South Korea, inspired by Otomo Yoshihide he also started to host improvised concert at his small office at night from 2008, called dotolim (anchor rising). After 5 years of small concert series and publishing every performance as audio-visual archive online, he hosted festival Dotolimpic. Ran without art council funding, he combined resources from all around and hosted two years of 3-day festival with musicians from all around the world.
Besides each sharing their organisations, we will also discuss their missions, drives, and experiences in running their organisations. After full-time work and life, what drives them to maintain the organisation, and both with such growth and flourish.
They will also bring their own magazines, zines, and music publications for display and sales. This event will be in both English and Mandarin.

dotolim is the name of a small business occupying a small office space, established in 2006 in Seoul by Jin Sangtae. In November 2006, Jin visited GRID605, a similarly small office space that also served as a performance venue for musician Otomo Yoshihide. Inspired by Otomo’s example of utilizing a business space as a performance venue, Jin followed suit with dotolim in 2008. dotolim is a very small space, with a capacity for only 30 people; this creates an intimate connection between performers and audience members. Jin Sangtae has presented concerts at dotolim nearly every month since then, about 100 concerts to date. The ‘dotolim concert series’ seeks to connect improvised music to all of the arts, and to new audiences.

And depending on audience’s donation, door money, social funding, personal donation and partners’ support, festival of improvised/experimental music ‘Dotolimpic’ was successfully held in October 2012 and 2013 without funding from art council.
