Residencia France Jobin (CA)
Workshop, master class e instalación sonora

France Jobin, artista del sonido y la instalación, compositora y curadora de arte, se dedica a crear instalaciones que incorporan elementos musicales y visuales que exploran el espacio arquitectónico de los lugares que interviene. Sus obras transitan entre lo analógico y lo digital y configuran una experimentación con el sonido y la imagen.

Jobin presentará en Casa del Lago UNAM un workshop que tiene como objetivo que las y los asistentes desarrollen una nueva sensibilidad ante los sonidos de su entorno para crear una pieza sonora. También impartirá una master class en la que expondrá una introducción a su trabajo y hablará de la importancia de los medios visuales y del sonido. Por último, presentará una instalación diseñada especialmente para la Casa del Lago.

Workshop: Introspección

El objetivo del curso es que los estudiantes desarrollen una nueva sensibilidad ante los sonidos que hay a su alrededor y sean capaces de crear una obra sonora que comunique algo de su interés con grabaciones de campo. Durante el primer día se hablará del desarrollo del proyecto para posteriormente grabar los sonidos que llamen su atención. Durante el segundo día usarán los audios para montar un track de un minuto que constituya una pieza sonora.

*El workshop será impartido en inglés*

Entanglement AV at Mutek ES in March 2022

https://barcelona.mutek.org/  for Tickets & More Info

Once again this year, the festival will transform the incomparable setting of the Antiga Fàbrica de Estrella Damm into a great sound and visual experience with Carmen Villain (NO), Bendik Giske (NO), Marina Herlop (ES), France Jobin & Markus Heckmann (CA/QC), Ryoichi Kurokawa (JP), aya & Sweatmother (UK), and Nahash (QC/CA).

More about artists:

Marina Herlop’s universe reaches beauty without renouncing complexity, which makes her one of the most brilliant, restless and interesting composers in our country. After signing with the influential PAN label, Marina has become one of the most interesting and promising artists in our country.

France Jobin and Markus Heckmann premiere their performance ‘Entanglement’, an artistic-scientific project inspired by the concept and properties of entanglement in quantum physics and quantum fields, based on theories such as the interpretation of Copenhagen and the multiverse (quantum decoherence), or the fluidity of time.

For the first time in Spain, the newly released live of aya together with the visuals of Sweatmother. With “im hole” (Hyperdub, 2021), the British artist has signed one of the most personal albums of this year, where not only club music is deconstructed but also language, dialect, gender and sexuality.

Nahash , alias of the artist and producer of labels like SVBKVLT (SHangay), has been for years motivated to generate soundtracks around the idea of the end of the world. He will debut with the A/V show of his album “Flowers Of The Revolution” (2020), a work that he feels really current as it evokes a pre-apocalyptic environment which resembles the world we are living in.

MUTEKES will also collaborate with the excellent Norwegian label, Smalltown Supersound with a showcase of artists from the label which will include Bendik Giske Carmen Villain.

Giske returns to Barcelona after his successful appearance on MUTEK Connect’s Caterina Barbieri show. Bendik Giske‘s saxophone is a pure extension of his body. It matches the Norwegian composer’s intense physicality; his total vulnerability, joy and artistic expression. Drawing on his own queer perspective, Bendik expands the concept of club music through rhythmically textured compositions and visceral performances.

Under that Latin pseudonym hides Carmen Hillestad, a half-Norwegian, half-Mexican artist and producer who has spent the last 9 years and 4 albums gently unravelling the song into the sound of emotional momentum. Carmen Villain arrives at MUTEK Barcelona 2022 with her fourth album under her arm. It is ‘Only Love From Now On’, a work also released by Smalltown Supersound in February 2022 that presents Villain’s aesthetic blossoming into something unexpected, benevolent in its composure and totally exuberant in its sensuality.

The Japan Foundation is joined by artist Ryuichi Kurokawa presenting for the first time in Barcelona his work. “assembly / subassemblies”, a project co-produced in 2019 by LOXOSconcept (Matera 2019), MUTEK, Stereolux/Scopitone and TodaysArt, in which he investigates the relationship between nature and the impact of human activity through an architectural scale perspective: ruins, buildings invaded by nature, badly preserved architectures that overlap and are dynamically rebuilt. The aim is not only to broaden the perception of floating between nature and man-made, but also between abstract and concrete phenomena through their transition, destruction and renaturalization.

*France & Markus are part of the delegation of Québec artists that #MUTEKES13 presents as part of the celebrations of the 25th anniversary of the Treaty of Cooperation between Catalonia and Québec.

France Jobin

France Jobin, artiste audio/installative/compositeure de film et commissaire, réside à Montréal. Son art audio, qualifié de «sculpture sonore», se distingue par une approche minimaliste d’environnements sonores complexes 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 dans une variété d’espaces non conventionnels et dans des festivals de nouvelles technologies internationaux.

Jobin a produit de nombreux albums solos qui sont parus sous des étiquettes renommées dont popmusik records (JP), LINE (US), nvo (AT), Baskaru (FR), ATAK (JP), ROOM40 (AU) No-ware (CL-DE) et récemment Editions Mego. Ses oeuvres font également partie de nombreuses compilations.

La fluidité du temps n’existe pas (15’)

Le temps est mystérieux ; Je n’avais jamais réalisé à quel point jusqu’à ce que je l’étudie dans le contexte de la physique quantique. Le mystère provient d’une façon de penser pleine de bon sens – que le moment présent, que nous appelons « maintenant », n’est pas figé mais se déplace constamment dans la direction du futur. C’est ce que nous appelons l’écoulement du temps.

Ce concept de “bon sens” du temps est le suivant : imaginez une ligne avec une flèche pointant vers la droite, chaque point de la ligne représente un moment fixe, un triangle dessiné avec la pointe touchant la ligne représente le point en mouvement continu, le moment présent. Il est censé se déplacer de gauche à droite. Certains croient que des événements particuliers sont fixes et que la ligne elle-même les dépasse, de sorte que des moments du futur balaient le moment présent pour devenir des moments passés. Penser le temps comme une ligne implique simplement une séquence de points à différentes positions, de sorte que tout point en mouvement peut être considéré comme une séquence immobile de  “snapshots”, en fait, une version de lui-même, à chaque instant. Elle s’apparente à une séquence de photos fixes, projetées sur un écran. Collectivement, les images bougent mais individuellement, l’image ne change jamais.

Cette idée que le moment présent semble avancer dans le temps est définie par rapport à notre conscience. Mais notre conscience cependant, ne peut pas faire cela. Rien ne peut bouger d’un instant à l’autre, Exister du tout à un instant particulier signifie exister pour toujours. Notre conscience existe dans tous nos moments (de veille). Nous ne faisons pas l’expérience du temps qui s’écoule ou qui passe. Ce que nous expérimentons, ce sont des différences entre nos perceptions présentes et nos souvenirs présents de perceptions passées. Nous interprétons correctement ces différences, comme la preuve que l’univers change avec le temps. Nous les interprétons également de manière incorrecte, comme la preuve que notre conscience, ou le présent, est quelque chose qui se déplace dans le temps.

Le temps qui passe est intrinsèque au monde ; il naît du monde lui-même, des relations entre les événements quantiques qui sont le monde, et qui eux-mêmes engendrent leur propre temps.

La fluidité du temps n’existe pas, est ma tentative d’interpréter ce concept en son, en créant un pièce de musique, qui elle-même est créée à l’intérieur  d’un laps de temps…

France Jobin & Markus HeckmannCA/QC+DE

France Jobin‘s audio art, referred to as “sound-sculpture”, distinguishes itself by a minimalist approach to complex sound environments. Since the mid-1990s, she has crafted meticulous compositions at the intersection of analog and digital. Her installations follow a parallel route, integrating musical and visual elements inspired by the architecture of diverse locations. Jobin has produced numerous solo albums under various renowned labels and her concerts and installations have been presented in several cities around the world.

Born in Germany in 1977, Markus Heckmann studied Media-technology at the University of Ilmenau and the Bauhaus University in Weimar before obtaining in 2006 the position of Technical Director at Derivative, the maker of TouchDesigner, in Toronto. Heckmann‘s personal works have always tended to combine the aesthetic aspects of generative computer graphics with the almost physical aspects of light. Apart from producing visuals and installations for artists like Carsten Nicolai or applications to control the KineticLights of WHITEvoid, he occasionally takes care of visual stimuli at techno events under the nickname Wüstenarchitekten.

Entanglement is basically an artistic project at the crossroads of scientific research inspired by the concept and properties of entanglement in quantum physics and quantum fields theory. The sources of inspiration of France Jobin and Markus Heckmann are based on the two current dominant theories explaining quantum entanglement: the Copenhagen interpretation and the multiverse (quantum decoherence). In addition to these two theories, there is the fluidity of time and the principle of quantum entanglement. The Entanglement performance is inspired by the same theories; an ambitious immersive experience which will be presented as a world premiere at the 22nd edition of MUTEK.

Dualità – A soundwalk on the banks of the Cervia river – Italy

WALKING…!!!

On August 6th ELEMENTI is back for a special event in the Savio River Natural Park in Cannuzzo di Cervia.

The project consists of a Soundwalk during which participants will listen in their headphones, via their smartphones / iPhones,Duality, an electronic composition by Canadian artist France Jobin, produced to be enjoyed on the road and exclusive to the Savio River routes.

fb EVENT -> 𝙁𝙧𝙖𝙣𝙘𝙚 𝙅𝙤𝙗𝙞𝙣 “𝘿𝙪𝙖𝙡𝙞𝙩𝙖̀” ☼ Soundwalk nel parco fluviale di CannuzzoFree participation with booking required: riservaree@gmail.com___ ELEMENTI by MU and MAGMA in collaboration with the Municipality of Cervia.

‘Dualità was inspired by the photographs and field recordings of Enrico Malatesta and Glauco Salvo.

While looking at the photographs, I listened to the field recordings to establish how I would process the sounds in order to create a piece that would evoke the feelings and emotions triggered by the visual. 

This unlikely collaboration took form by adapting to the pandemic. It enabled me to create a composition in a virtual in-situ context. A walk between the village of Cervia to Cesena along the river Savio, heard through my ears, a continent away.’

Concert France Jobin (CAN) / AIR – ARTIST IN RESIDENCE Lower Austria in Krems in November 2019 concert

  • Thursday, November 21, 2019, 6:00 pm

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.
