About the artists…

FRANCE JOBIN is a sound artist, composer, and curator residing in Montreal, whose audio art reveals a minimalist approach to complex sound environments where analog and digital intersect. Her installations incorporate both musical and visual elements inspired by the architecture of physical spaces. Her work can be “experienced” internationally in various music venues and new technology festivals, such as Mutek, Flussi, FIMAV, SEND + RECEIVE, Club Transmediale, ISEA RUHR 2010, and surface tension tour Japan. She has releases on Dragon’s Eye, LINE, Room40, ATAK, and non-visual objects.

TIM FEENEY has performed as an improviser with musicians including the trio Meridian, with percussionists Sarah Hennies and Greg Stuart, pianist Annie Lewandowski, cellist and electronic musician Vic Rawlings, vocalist Ken Ueno, saxophonist Andrew Raffo Dewar, banjo and electronic musician Holland Hopson, and many others. He has toured throughout the United States, including notable performances at Boston’s Institute of Contemporary Art, New York’s The Stone, the Center for New Music and Audio Technology at UC-Berkeley, the Stanford Art Museum, Mills College, Princeton University, and Oberlin College. Most recently, he has performed in quartet and large ensembles with composer and saxophonist Anthony Braxton, with whom he recorded for the Tri-Centric Foundation for release in 2016. He has also recorded for Caduc, Accidie, Full Spectrum, Sedimental, homophoni, Audiobot, Soul on Rice, lildiscs, and Brassland/Talitres.

France Jobin will present  a four-channel sound installation and live performance on October 28th 2016 for the closing of Haunted Formalism.


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.

We are collecting the sounds of ice and the documents related to them from artists all over the world, as we believe that the ice might solidify with the conditions of the lands and their memories. In this exhibition, we create an installation work and do a sound performance based on those collected sounds and documents, and attempt to fill the space of blanClass with the huge memories of the world captive in the ice.

live @ L’Arca – L’Arca – Laboratorio per le arti contemporanee may 12 2016


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.
