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.


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.

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

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.

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.
