About the artists…

SHARE: A Multimedia Collaborative Forum in Emergence,

The idea of following the “Billboard Top 100” is long over – the future is for people to choose their tools to make their own songs, images and ideas. SHARE is an open community, forum, and jam session for audio/ visual artists that provides a basic infrastructure and helps people to use it to perform together. As a result, it becomes a big uncontrolled multimedia openjam. SHARE is a space for people to meet, chat, and play together. In these two panels, members of the SHARE community will share their experiences and field questions about this global initiative. Now nearly six years old, SHARE has spread to eight cities worldwide, with three more chapters expected to launch in 2007.

49 Melcher St. Floor 2 (Fort Point), Boston

This show is co-produced by Intransitive Recordings

YUKO NEXUS6 is a sound artist based in Hikone, Japan. Using a mixture of field recordings, cut-up samples, digital processing, and her own voice, Yuko creates beguiling, often slyly humorous, always wonderfully idiosyncratic sonic collages and compositions. Conscious of the unspectacular dryness of an artist in front of her computer, in performance she is constantly inventing and adding little elements like grains of sand that derail her music towards something alive and astute. She received an honorary mention in Europe’s Prix Ars Electronic competition in 2003. This is Yuko’s first Boston performance.

Austrian-born composer and sound artist BERNHARD GAL creates electronic and electro-acoustic music, as well as compositions for acoustic instruments. His projects and sound installations incorporate light, objects, video projections and spatial concepts. He runs the record label Gromoga Records and is director of the Austrian art organization “sp ce”. Currently, Gal divides his time between Vienna and Berlin, where he also teaches sound art at the University of Arts.

ALESSANDRO BOSETTI is a composer, saxophonist and sound artist. Bosetti’s work centers on the musicality and unusual aspects of the spoken word. His text-sound compositions navigate the boundary between sound anthropology and composition, often employing field research and interviews as the basis for his abstract compositions. As a saxophonist, he has developed an original instrumental language, using extended techniques and a variety of noises, and which are strongly influence by electronic music. Bosetti was born in Milan, Italy and currently lives and works in Berlin.

France Jobin aka i8u is a sound / installation / web artist residing in Montreal, Canada. Her audio art is sculptural in nature, revealing powerful, opaque, and complex sound environments where analog and digital meet. Her installation/web art follows a parallel path, incorporating both musical and visual elements. I8U has released solo recordings on labels such as Staalplaat, Piehead, and Oral, and has collaborated on releases with Martin Tétreault, David Kristian, and Tomas Phillips. She has also appeared on compilations on ATAK, Bremsstrahlung, and Mutek.
