Minimalismus und Loop. Synths zwischen Acid und Ambient: FRANCE JOBIN (CAN) / JOHANNES AUVINEN (AUT/FIN)

Eine Veranstaltung von STROMSCHIENE

Sie sind beide an minimalistischen Sprachen und konzisen Ausdrucksweisen interessiert. Die Kanadierin France Jobin und der in Wien ansässige Finne Johannes Auvinen. Letzterer ist fast ausschließlich im internationalen Club-Kontext anzutreffen, wo er fein nuancierten Acid-House aus Synth und Drumcomputer schält. In seinem Set für die Alte Schmiede präsentiert er erstmals seinen soften Casual Acid. Auvinen konzentriert sich dabei auf die Grundbausteine des Genres, auf Timbre und die Texturen der Synth-Lines, gespeist aus den typischen Maschinen Roland 303 und 101. Er betreibt eine Analyse des Genres, die die Seele und haptischen Qualitäten des House hervortreten lässt und den Fokus auf die melodischen Parts legt. Auch die filigranen Stücke von France Jobin basieren auf feinen Schattierungen und Abstufungen. Die Sound-Art-Künstlerin und Komponistin überführt ihren minimalistischen Ansatz in komplexe, ätherische Klangumgebungen, in denen analoge und digitale Prozesse miteinander verschränkt werden. Es sind klare Drones und subtile Klangwolken, die in Vergangenheitsschichten vordringen und gleichzeitig ins Reich des Imaginären entführen, wobei sie den realen Raum nie außer Acht lassen. S. Strelka/VK

STARTS AT 8

This event marks the closing of Haunted Formalism, which true to its exploration of ambivalence and in-betweenness itself adopts two interrelated, concurrent forms. An exhibition of new works by Nicole Phungrasamee Fein and Dean Smith establishes the thematic concerns that inform an ongoing program of live, limited-capacity events, creating an open-ended dialogue between disparate practices that evolves through experiences intended for a small audience.

Yet these dialogues themselves arise from tensions within the artists’ works. Among the most fundamental takes place between art and science; Smith’s drawings in graphite, we argue, can be interpreted in terms of the relational properties of the carbon atoms that compose his medium, while Fein’s compositions, which evoke supernovae and cell-culture dishes, recall the simultaneous coexistence of two states possible in the quantum realm.

France Jobin makes work that emerges from the proposition of an unlikely parallel between quantum mechanics and composing. Just as Heisenberg discovered that scientific precision encounters a limit past a certain scale, so too does the composer stand in an uncertain relationship to the feelings and emotional states that inform his or her work, necessarily falling short of full knowledge. The conundrum is doubled with respect to the listener, for whom the sounds at hand may well have been processed past the point of recognizability, obscuring yet still indicating their material source.

This evening will comprise a four-channel sound installation and a live performance. Tickets are $18, and capacity is limited.

LINE co-presents France Jobin & Fabio Perletta on May 12 in Teramo Italy at L’Arca – Laboratorio per le arti contemporanee

La geografia culturale della contemporaneità sta indiscutibilmente subendo un’ennesima evoluzione: la vituperata estetica del non-luogo, temporanea illusione post-’90 trascinata ignobilmente per tutta la prima decade del nuovo millennio, è, oggi, quantomai deprivata dai suoi significati più profondi. Il web 2.0 e la connettività ne hanno assimilato i contenuti, liberando lo spazio ‘tutto’ dalla subalternità metropolitana. Riscoprire le identità paesaggistiche, urbane ed umane delle realtà ‘locali’ (e localizzate) è forse, ora, il paradigma più adeguato alla germinazione e crescita di incontaminati e primigeni linguaggi e percorsi artistici. In∩Out vuole essere una presa di coscienza, una dimostrazione di esistenza, una prima azione, visionaria, per vivere una città, Teramo, oltre le sue frizioni interno/esterno e scoprendone valori legittimamente internazionalizzabili.

_____________

Sullo sfondo del malinconico transito del tempo, France Jobin ricama trame minimaliste di microscopiche ed infinitesimali delicatezze: biologie cristalline colte nel loro divenire, immortalate nella loro mutevolezza, osservate nelle lente ed organiche trasformazioni. Un sistema impercettibile di rifrangenti equilibri, unico nel suo essere, sublime nella sua discrezione. Nella glaciale irrealtà contemporanea, Singulum ci parla di scienza quale epifania della natura, nelle sue debolezze e caducità indaga fra sensibilistiche relazioni particellari scoprendone l’umanità e la fragilità.

Licenziato da LINE nel Febbraio 2016

Un polittico di visioni spaziali compiute. Genkai 限界, scambio intellettuale e sonico fra Fabio Perletta ed Haruo Okada (JP), produce moduli paesaggistici impossibili e limitati nella loro in-confinabilità. In equilibrio fra sottili e dicotomiche relazioni fra pieni e vuoti, il lavoro a quattro mani del riduzionista abruzzese e del sound designer nipponico, ragiona su soluzioni elettroacustiche metafisiche, dove la ‘rappresentazione’, alterata dall’interpretazione, raggiunge, nella sua espressione minima, vastità meditative Zen, tanto libere e cerebrali quanto scientificamente tattili.

The electronic music of composer France Jobin can be described as “sound-sculpture,” revealing a minimalist approach to complex sound environments where analog and digital methods intersect. While her music often makes use of restraint and limit, she isn’t one to shy away from extremes. Her skillful interplay between highs and lows, louds and softs, creates an intricate narrative, which stretches the listener’s perception and continually refocuses attention.

Using an array of specifically placed loudspeakers numbering in the dozens, Jobin will present a new work built for the EMPAC Concert Hall.

We’re offering a special ticket package for Thursday and Friday’s shows. For $20 ($10 for RPI students), admission is available to both Oneohtrix Point Never and France Jobin. Call the EMPAC box office at 518-276-3921.

France Jobin is a sound/installation artist, composer, and curator residing in Montreal, Canada. Her installations express a parallel path, incorporating both musical and visual elements inspired by the architecture of physical spaces. Her works can be “experienced” in various music venues and new-technology festivals across Canada, the United States, South America, South Africa, Europe and Japan.

Mirror neurons are a fundamental discovery in neuroscience, which is due to an Italian researcher, Giacomo Rizzolatti, and his team at the University of Parma. It is also the base from which the sound artists France Jobin and Fabio Perletta created “Mirror Neurons”, another step of their journey to investigate the crossroads between science and art, between the visible and invisible, between distances and intersections – the two work very far from each other, Jobin lives in Montréal while Perletta lives in Roseto degli Abruzzi but their exchange is continuous and relentless). Finally, the visual work made in a generative matrix by the Roman collective XX+XY visuals makes their performance even richer.

In conversation : Mark Fell and France Jobin

Often, the mark of excellence in electronic music and sound art is the ability of the composer to hide their identity and virtuosity behind an inscrutable bank of machinery or within the ambient acoustics of the space in which the piece is performed. Whether or not this obfuscation is willful, it results in a genre of music that is vastly diverse in both its effects and technical configurations. In this conversation between Mark Fell and France Jobin, two masters of their understated craft will step forward to engage in dialogue and answer questions about the aesthetics, techniques, and politics of their work.

Fell has been in residence at EMPAC to develop Recursive Frame Analysis, a new work for sound, light, and dance; meanwhile, Jobin has been working on the premiere of a multi-channel sound piece for the Concert Hall.

Mark Fell is a multidisciplinary artist based in Sheffield, UK. He is widely known for combining popular music styles such as electronica and techno with more academic approaches to computer-based composition, with a particular emphasis on algorithmic and mathematical systems. As well as recorded works, he produces installation pieces, often using multiple speaker systems. He started his career in the ’90s house and techno scene as one half of electronic duo SND and released The Neurobiology of Moral Decision Making earlier this year on label The Death of Rave.
