L’objectif principal du groupe international de performance multimédia et de musique XAMBUCA est de créer des environnements audiovisuels dans lesquels coexistent des réalités différentes. Créé par l’artiste sonore Chandra Shukla, et incluant désormais l’artiste visuel Geo Lynx, le groupe expérimente avec l’espace, le son, les interactions visuelles entre humains et parfois même la danse, donnant lieu à des morceaux qui ont des airs de mouvements synchronisés.

Heinz Riegler: Score for Uncertainty 3

(Improvisation for Magnetic Tape, Guitar, MP3 Players, Found Objects)

Austrian-born artist Heinz Riegler creates an evolving sound space that folds into itself, building on his Score for Uncertainty work that was debuted at Gallery 5020, Salzburg, in 2017. Part performance, part installation, this piece evolves in unexpected ways, pulling both the listener and the performer through the space.

Heinz Riegler is a musician, artist and curator working between Australia and Europe. Working with an interdisciplinary focus, he operates at the intersection of sound art, installation and performance. Since 1989, Riegler has been releasing musical works with a variety of imprints, such as Room40 and Warner Records, and has played concerts in Australia, Europe, Japan, the UK and USA. In a curatorial capacity, Riegler co-produced a season of performances at the Gallery of Modern Art Cinémathèque, Brisbane, and is the co-founder and Artistic Director of the minus20degree Winter Biennale in Flachau, Austria.

MONO 31

Jobin will present Intrication, a work inspired by quantum entanglement, seeking to discover the relationship between sound and observing sound. Jobin is a sound and installation artist, composer, and curator based in Montreal, Canada. Her sonic work has been described as sound sculpture, fusing both musical and visual elements to create experiential environments where analogue and digital intersect. She often draws inspiration from architecture and her work has been staged in unconventional spaces and at festivals across Canada, the United States, South America, South Africa, Europe, and Japan. MONO is a program of sound curated by Lawrence English of Room40.

Robert Crouch is an artist and curator whose work encompasses sound, performance, and technology. His work can be understood as a conversation between tonality, context, history and subjectivities

Los Angeles based artist and composer Yann Novak explores how intangible materials—sound and light—can act as catalysts to focus our awareness on the felt presence of direct experience. 

France would like to acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts and Le conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec for their support.

Cra. 44 #19a-100, Medellín, Antioquia

In spanish only:

Escuchando desde adentro – La arquitectura del sonido y nuestras expectativas.

La instalación, la música y elementos visuales inspirados por la arquitectura y el manejo del espacio, convergen en el trabajo de France Jobin, artista sonora, compositora y curadora de Canadá. Es reconocida por sus “esculturas sonoras” en tiempo real que revelan una aproximación minimalista a paisajes sonoros complejos, mezclando influencias digitales y analógicas.

En este taller, la artista introducirá su práctica, específicamente los aspectos alusivos al sonido y los espacios; las relaciones de estos sonidos con la música tradicional, el cine y otras características de la experiencia de la percepción sonora en su sentido abierto a las diferentes formas de la escucha.

“La sinestesia que se produce en los espacios arquitectónicos es la la fuerza que me impulsa a explorar el sonido. Mientras un arquitecto hace diseños pensados para ocupar un espacio, yo me intereso por elaborar esculturas de sonido que encajan en la fluidez del tiempo y la percepción. El entorno, por ejemplo, le da forma y un carácter arquitectónico a mis piezas y a su sonoridad. Por otro lado, cuando hago instalaciones y conciertos tiendo a ubicar parlantes en lugares específicos que tienen correlación con la arquitectura del espacio. De esta manera logro esculturas sonoras que no son necesariamente objetuales”.

July 20th 2018
She will also present Inter/sperse* at Domo del Planetario as part of the program Micro-estruendos en el domo.

Artistas: Carmen Gil Vrojlik (COL) · France Jobin (CAN) · Merino (COL)

In spanish only:

Un vuelo por el espacio fulldome, microsonido y ambient en el Domo del Planetario, hoy espacio de tradición en nuestra celebración anual. Concierto de cierre de la Semana de la Escucha 2018, una exploración abierta de la escucha en la inmersión y la quietud.

  • La Quinta del Lobo (Carmen Gil Vrojlik y Camilo Giraldo) · HYBRIS Fulldome

Esta propuesta para el formato fulldome parte como un vuelo por el espacio, por la representación en diferentes culturas de constelaciones como dioses y seres híbridos que a su vez se unen con los humanos y crean otros seres, que se aparean con bestias y crean otras bestias, que a su vez arrasan con su entorno. ¿Qué pasa con el híbrido que se cruza con otro híbrido?

  • Merino · Ambient DJ Set · Acostumbra un techno hipnótico, un ritmo telúrico que ha sabido ubicarse en la pista de baile pero esta vez se ubica en una postura acusmática, explorando el ambient desde el arte de la mezcla y la escucha atenta de un espacio normalmente ocupado por el beat.
  • France Jobin · Inter/sperse · Concierto nacido como adaptación de la instalación creada por la artista para sitio específico en el territorio y alrededores del Museolaboratorio (Città Sant’Angelo, Pescara) en Italia, con el apoyo del programa de residencias LUX, Museolaboratorio, 901 editions y el Conseil des Arts du Canada.

 “Ser afectado por la sinestesia en una forma positiva con respecto a los espacios arquitectónicos, es la fuerza que me impulsa a crear exploraciones con sonido. Un arquitecto diseña trabajos que ocupan un espacio; Yo diría que me encargo de construir esculturas sonoras que encajan con el flujo del tiempo y la percepción. Para mi, el entorno arquitectónicamente moldea las piezas y cómo deberán ser escuchadas.” – France Jobin

ARTISTES EN PERFORMANCE CE 4 MAI

Simon Chioini – “Sans titre 3 et 4” (2018)

Venu à la musique par la percussion, l’électroacousticien Simon Chioini compose une musique qui fait écho aux pionniers du genre autant qu’aux courants contemporains d’une musique électronique underground. “Sans titre 3 et 4” (2018) présentent des sonorités dont la pureté contraste avec un foisonnement bruité.

France Jobin – “24-45” (2018)

Artiste audio qui se distingue par une approche minimaliste d’environnements sonores complexes à l’intersection de l’analogue et du numérique, France Jobin fait entendre de véritables sculptures sonores. Sa pièce “24-45” (2018) mêle hauteurs et amplitudes dans un ballet visant à déstabiliser la perception de l’auditeur.

Dominic Thibault – “VCS3 remix” (2018)

La musique du codirecteur du label The Silent Howl se situe à la croisée de la musique concrète, du techno minimal et du paysage sonore. “VCS3 remix” (2018) est une version écourtée du disque du même nom, sur lequel toute la musique est composée uniquement à l’aide de sons générés par le synthétiseur EMS VCS3

Robert Normandeau – “La part des anges” (2011-12)

L’un des fondateurs d’AKOUSMA, Robert Normandeau consacre la majeure partie de son travail à la musique acousmatique, de même qu’à l’enseignement (Université de Montréal). Sa pièce La part des anges (2011-12) est construite à partir d’échantillonnages de chants a capella.
