FRANCE JOBIN

France Jobin est à la fois artiste audio, compositrice et commissaire. Son art qualifié de «sculpture sonore » se distingue par une approche minimaliste aux environnements sonores, à l’intersection de l’analogue et du numérique. Ses installations empruntent un parcours parallèle, intégrant des éléments musicaux et visuels inspirés par l’architecture des lieux. On peut « vivre l’expérience » de ses installations et concerts live dans une variété d’espaces non conventionnels tels que des festivals de musique et de nouvelles technologies au Canada, aux États-Unis, en Amérique du Sud, en Afrique du Sud, en Europe et au Japon.

COMMISSAIRE GUILLAUME CÔTÉ

Influencé par ce qui l’entoure, le compositeur électroacoustique Guillaume Côté explore, à travers un mélange de matériaux concrets, synthétiques et vocaux, les dynamiques territoriales, linguistiques et sociales propres au Québec.

Il est titulaire d’une maîtrise en composition électroacoustique de l’Université de Montréal sous la tutelle de Robert Normandeau.

Éclectique, sa recherche artistique repose non seulement sur la rencontre de l’Autre par un discours musical aux visées narrative ou informative, mais aussi sur l’abstraction induite par les systèmes modulaires.

Cofondateur de la boîte de création audionumérique Trames, il collabore avec plusieurs artistes tels que Samuel Bobony (Black Givre), Guillaume Campion (Archipel), Lucie Leroux (Empreintes) Dave Gagnon (L’Autre) et Alexis Langevin-Tétrault (Falaises).

stream here

Drone Activity in Progress

Taking a cue from their event held last year while the Academy was in Montréal, Thursday night promises serious doses of drone and heaviosity with immersive sound artist France Jobin, the full spectrum overtones of Sarah Davachi, an experimental modular adventure from Surgeon’s Anthony Child, claustrophobic atmospheres and grid-resistant pulses from Fis, and the masterful and dangerous sound design of Norwegian legend Deathprod.

Entre/temps

Entre/temps – Site specific sound installation June 4 -September 30 2017

Entre/temps at Eremo Celestianiano Di Madonna Dell’Altare, in Panela (CH), a site specific sound installation and
France Jobin will perform the opening concert for the opening of the festival Eremi Arte.

Entre/temps

Is an in-situ installation resulting from my daily encounters and experiences with the people and landscape of the Abruzzo region. The location, la Madonna dell’altare is a particular setting for this work. Constructed in the 14th century, it is placed on a cliff that makes the building impenetrable from three sides.

Yet, there is a fragility here, a beauty in landscape that defies time. In this spirit, entre/temps proposes a small intermission, a moment of time, within time.

‘entre/temps’ è un’installazione in-situ, risultato delle mie esperienze e incontri quotidiani con la gente e il paesaggio della regione Abruzzo. Il luogo de La Madonna dell’Altare rappresenta una cornice speciale per questo lavoro. Costruita nel 14° secolo, la struttura è situata su una scogliera che la rende impenetrabile da tre lati.

Eppure c’è una fragilità qui, una bellezza nel paesaggio che sfida il tempo. In questo spirito, ‘entre/temps’ si configura come una piccola pausa, un attimo di tempo nel tempo.

Entre-deux @ n38e13  in Palermo, Sicily

May.21.2017

France has been invited to present Entre-deux, a 4-channel site-specific sound installation, 144 minute cycles

Entre-deux will be presented in the context of Innerscape organized by Vacuamoenia. Innerscape is a week-long project where artists are invited to reflect through their own compositions on a type of exploration in unusual landscapes, trying to make to hear the inaudible.

Entre-deux will be presented for the closing of the event May 20th 2017.
Artists involved and compilation album

More about  Entre-deux :

Jobin was one of five international artists selected to present her sound installation, Entre-Deux, in the new media exhibit Data/Fields, curated by Richard Chartier at Artisphere in the Washington, DC area, along with Ryoji Ikeda, Mark Fell, Caleb Coppock, and Andy Graydon. Her proposition received critical acclaim from the national press.

Created entirely with actual field recordings from across the globe and on location around Artisphere, Montreal sound artist France Jobin’s site-specific work Entre-deux explores acts of systemic, yet subjective, information gathering. Spaces and times are chosen for their inherent beauty, then processed and reformed as location and experience itself becomes transposed. Entre-deux is the re-placing of data.  RC

This residency is made possible by the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts, Research grant for New Media and Audio Artists.

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
