The Canadian-born sound artist, composer and curator France Jobin immerses herself in the electronic sound worlds of Ernst Krenek’s Buchla synthesizer during her stay in Krems and is inspired by atonal tonal language and works by the composer’s random elements (aleatoric). She explores parallels between atonal-aleatoric principles and modular sound synthesis in a new composition.
For many years, France Jobin has been exploring the sounds and sounds that surround us daily, collecting and “recycling” field recordings to present them in a whole new light. Her audio art refers to her as a “sound sculpture” and shows a minimalist approach to complex sound environments in which the analog and the digital intersect.

DUO AV @Bunker | 11.03 SUN, 21:00-22:00
‘DUO’ is the first project of minimalist composers France Jobin and Richard Chartier. DUO expresses eternity and creates an atmosphere that fills space. The sound they produce permeates into a complex and delicate system depicted in time and space. The sound of DUO, together with Markus Heckmann’s beautiful visual work, guides the audience into a world of mysterious emotions and experiences as if it is a spacewalk.
Jobin is a French Montreal based sound / installer / artist, composer and curator. Her audio art, which can be called ‘sound-sculpture’, shows a minimalist approach to a complex sound environment where analog and digital intersect.
Richard Chartier is considered one of Los Angeles-based composers and key figures in minimalist sound art. His work explores the interrelationship between the spatial characteristics of sound and silence.
Markus Heckmann, technical director of touch designer software developer Derivative, has long been an expert in creating large installations and visual arts, working with artists and large projects with inspiration for music, lighting and club scene images.

DUO – World premiere:
19:00 – 19:45
At MUTEK, Jobin and Chartier present the world premiere of audiovisual project DUO, with synchronized visuals created by visual artist and TouchDesigner’s technical director and artist Markus Heckmann
Ambient sounds intermingle within an intricate and delicate spatial and temporal-meets-“intemporelle“ system in DUO, the first collaborative project from artists France Jobin and Richard Chartier. Originally released on the Tokyo-based mAtter label, DUO reverberates with tension, an ominous suspense building throughout five long tracks composed of static electrical signals, multi-level drones and serene synth melodies.
Both prolific artists with a focus on audiovisual environments, new technologies and modular components, France Jobin and Richard Chartier met at MUTEK Montréal in 2000 and went on to form a collaborative friendship and professional kinship. The sounds of everyday life become sculptural and enveloping in the multidisciplinary work of award-winning artist, composer and curator France Jobin. Since the mid-’90s, she’s crafted meticulous compositions that merge analog rumblings with digital precision, modular with field recordings, musical with visual. Applying a minimalist approach to her site-specific sound environments, she creates installations and performances inspired by the architecture of physical spaces, deeply immersing listeners in subtly textured variations, often inducing physical effects that go beyond the ear.
Alongside his visual art practice, Richard Chartier has produced multiple minimal electronic pieces, exploring the interrelations between the natural spatiality of sound, silence, focus, perception and the art of listening itself. He’s collaborated with composer William Basinski, sound artists ELEH, CoH, Matmos, German electronic music pioneer Asmus Tietchens and many more sound and multimedia artists. Chartierʼs sound works/installations have been presented in museums, galleries and performance contexts all over the world.
After the release of DUO on mAtter label, Jobin and Chartier created an exhibition of prints based on the concept, re.DUO, held in February at Tokyo’s gift_lab GARAGE gallery. Jobin and Chartier premiere DUO‘s first-ever live performance at MUTEK, combining sound with seamless live visuals by artist Markus Heckmann to create a wholly immersive and spatially dynamic atmosphere.

die ANGEL est un projet d’improvisation noise et électro-acoustique fondé en 1999 par Dirk Dresselhaus et Ilpo Väisänen (ex Pan sonic). Leur dernier album, Yön Magneetti Sine, a été enregistré dans l’environnement calme du chalet de Väisänen près de Karttula, en Finlande. Chacune des cinq pistes improvisées fait écho aux vibrations qui y ont été ressenties durant ces nuits d’été lumineuses.

L’objectif principal du groupe international de performance multimédia et de musique XAMBUCA est de créer des environnements audiovisuels dans lesquels coexistent des réalités différentes. Créé par l’artiste sonore Chandra Shukla, et incluant désormais l’artiste visuel Geo Lynx, le groupe expérimente avec l’espace, le son, les interactions visuelles entre humains et parfois même la danse, donnant lieu à des morceaux qui ont des airs de mouvements synchronisés.
