Entanglement AV at GAS Göteborg Art Sounds 2022


18:00-21:00 | SKEPPET GBG
Canadian sound artist Pierre-Luc Lecours and saxophonist Ida Toninato will present their audiovisual performance Inner Seas, which is an audiovisual performance that revolves around the theme of water, where baritone saxophone, modular synthesizer and electric guitar meet. Montreal based sound artist Myriam Boucher presents the work The Tuning of the Fields, a work that tends to evoke those moments of solitude and wonder, and that feeling of suspended time that inhabits us when listening to the song of the crickets, eyes closed, at night, lying in a field. Montreal based artists France Jobin and Markus Heckmann presents the audiovisual work Entanglement, which is an artistic project at the crossroads of scientific research inspired by the concept and properties of entanglement in quantum physics and quantum fields theory.

Credits : Crystal House

Creation: Tedi Tafel
Dancer: Bill Coleman
Lighting: Yan Lee Chan
Sound: i8u

January 21-22-23.10

The Calendar Project: A year-long, site-specific performance series created by Tedi Tafel

Calendar is a year-long, in situ performance series starting in January 2010 comprised of 12 events – one a month for the entire year. The series draws its inspiration from the seasonal shifts and cycles of the natural world. Each event is closely tied to the time of year in which it will be presented. Calendar takes a variety of forms from the discrete to the elaborate, and will be shown in a diverse array of spaces in Montreal including an industrial warehouse, a backyard garden and an alleyway.

Events vary in length lasting anywhere from mere minutes to several hours occurring at different times of the day. All events are free. calendarproject.ca will be updated and disseminated monthly announcing future events and documenting past ones through images, text and sound.

WHEN: . . . . . January 21-23 between 6 and 9 p.m.
WHERE: . . . . . Espace Jean Brillant
661 Rose de Lima
Montreal, Quebec
(near metro Lionel Groulx)


we enter this wintery space and are stilled
a time of no time, of shadow, hibernation, dream and memory
life is underground, slowed right down
images emerge out of the cold, at times only barely perceptible and light reaches through the darkness

(Tedi Tafel)

This collaborative performance takes the form of a moving installation blending dance, sound, light and video projections. The work will be shown for 3 hours. The public is invited to come and go as they please and to move around the space as they wish. Admission is free.

A collaborative performance by Bubblyfish and i8u. Prosody comes from linguistics, the patterns of stress, rhythm and intonation of connected speech. It may reflect various features of the speaker, be it utterance or an emotional state, that may not be encoded by grammar or choice of vocabulary. This performance proposes the idea of prosody in an experimental improvisational musical form.

i8u | CHiKA
Traverse, 2009, World Premiere

In today’s connected world we have many new methods of collaborating,
and many technical and artistic problems that arise in the process.

These two artists bring this chasm into focus and explore the
possibilities given by these constraints.

This project intersects i8u’s minimal yet powerful sound sculptures and
CHiKA’s geometric minimalist patterns to create a work that expresses
the examination and limitations of itself.

France Jobin aka i8u is a sound/installation/web artist whose work has been released on ROOM40 (AUS), nvo (AU) and recently, a collaboration with Tomas Phillips on ATAK (JP). She has worked with Goem, Martin Tétreault and David Kristian.

CHiKA is a live media artist working in the international VJ and experimental music scene. Her performances vary from minimalist geometric patterns to unique compositions overflowing with a variety of forms and color.

Deadbeat & Paul St. Hilaire
Moderat = Modeselektor + Apparat
Ezekiel Honig

The many factions of dub converge onto one large stage to showcase just how far Jamaica’s roots reggae templates have evolved toward new genres in the hands of some of today’s hottest names.

None other than Skull Disco co-founder APPLEBLIM comes to Montreal for his Canadian debut and a DJ set that showcases the many point sof fusion between UK dubstep and Berlin techno. A seamless blend of echoes, bass, and delays leads us to the heavily anticipated collaboration between Canadian dub-don DEADBEAT and Berlin’s master vocalist of all things dub, PAUL ST. HILAIRE . The collaboration is something of a natural selection for MUTEK, given Deadbeat’s longstanding participation with MUTEK, and the fact that St. Hilaire has also performed at MUTEK events several times over the decade.

Next up, MODESELEKTOR and APPARAT join forces for the Canadian premiere of MODERAT , a stunning live audio-visual production accompanied by the striking video work of PFADFINDEREI . Again, MUTEK has a long history with both acts, as Apparat first appeared here in 2005 and Modeselektor performed here in 2006 and 2008.

And finally, the night winds to a tailspin with the breakneck dubstep assault of the Digital Mystiks’ MALA , in town for a Canadian debut DJ set.

Meanwhile, the SAVOY ROOM fills with the ambient soundscapes of EZEKIEL HONIG , CLINKER , I8U , NOVI_SAD , and AUN .

in the heart of the St Claude Arts District.
Tanner Menard, Antenna Gallery and Experimedia Records presents Sommeil: A Concert for Sleep, an international collaborative experiment. Sommeil will be an all-night event beginning at 10:00 pm on Saturday April 11th and ending on Sunday April 12th at 7:00 am.

Participants are asked to slowly fall asleep while live ambient and environmental music is performed through the night by Tanner Menard. i8u’s circadian will  start off the evening, alongside Tanner Menard’s piano recordings and Mathieu Rhulmann’s baby cooing.

Sommeil: A Concert for Sleep will be Menard’s reinterpretation of the sleep concert experiment, first created by Robert Rich in 1982 and will be presented at the Antenna Gallery 3161 Burgundy
The concert will be realized with Rich’s permission and guidance. Sleep concerts are all-night events in which the audience is asked to attend the concert with a sleeping bag and pillow and to fall asleep while a slowly unfolding sonic texture evolves over the course of the night and into the morning. People attending
the event are asked to be willing to sleep during the event or at least to remain silent during the course of the nine hour experience.

Not merely a recreation of Rich’s original idea, Sommeil is a conceptual, global remix of a performance type that addresses one of the most basic functionalities of ambient and environmental sound; music by which to sleep.

In the spirit of remix and the Creative Commons movement, Menard, a Louisiana native, has compiled submissions of audio material for the concert from nearly seventy artists across the globe.
These artists answered a call for submissions marketed online by Experimedia Records which asked for music and field recording to be used, remixed and mashed up during this nocturnal event.
Submissions include drones, found sound, recordings of natural and unnatural environments and synthetic music created on synthesizers and computers. Submitters have included radio scientists,
geologists, psychologists, sound artists, musicians, composers, installation artists as well as several well known figures in the ambient music scene. During the course of the evening, Menard
will remix these sleep submissions into a constantly evolving sonic texture that will lull the audience to sleep. A quad-channel surround sound system will be provided by Piety St Studios for maximum sonic enhancement of the sleep space and ambient video lighting will be provided in the form of a video loop by the internationally acclaimed VJ CHIKA. Experimedia Records has generously agreed to release multiple out takes from this concert on its Internet label under a free Creative Commons license.

Sommeil: A Concert for Sleep will be nine hours of uninterrupted music beginning at 10:00 pm on Saturday April 11th and endingat 7:00 am on Sunday April 12th at Antenna Gallery . Tickets to
the evening event will be $15 and will include a light breakfast at waking time. During the day of April 11th Antenna Gallery will be opening the space to allow people who do not wish to sleep through the night to hear the original submissions from the international community of artists. We are asking $5 per hour toexperience the meditative environment of the sleep space and $3 per half an hour from noon to 9:00 pm on Saturday April 11th.

At 6 pm we will also be participating in the St Claude Gallery Opening that falls on the second Saturday of each month. All proceeds will benefit Antenna Gallery. Please visit tannermenard. archaichorizon.com to follow the event as it unfolds.


Tanner Menard was born on September 20th, 1978 the same month that Brian Eno published his essay entitled ‘Ambient Music’. Cosmically connected to this conceptual shift in musical consciousness, Menard’s music has always soared over minimalist and ambient landscapes. At the age of 11 Menard composed his first works for piano and quickly established a reputation as a composer of minimalist music for orchestral forces. His work joe’s last mix’ has been performed around the globe at a number
of distinguished festivals and was released in 2003 on Kafua Records in Japan. In 2002 his sonic world was shaken by his experience working with Naut Human, the well known Curator and label owner at Recombinant Media Labs in San Francisco. There he discovered the world of ambient and experimental electronic music. In 2005 he served as an artist in residence at Arizona State University where he collaborated with Jeph Jerman, Gary Hill and Daniel Bernard Romain for his installation ‘envyronie’ which
combined orchestra, live electronics and desert recordings. His collaboration with Jerman inspired a series of environmentally based works and has subsequently marked the departure from
his classical and experimental backgrounds in favor of a world of ambient landscapes and piano inspired sound meditations. Menard’s music is released on Install Records, Archaic Horizon net
label, Friendly Virus net label, Kafua Records and Experimedia (tbr) and his orchestral music has been published by Loose Filter Music. His music has also appeared on the radio, on tv, in plays,
art galleries and major concert halls across the world and his blog ‘Tanner Menard’ is rapidly gaining international notoriety for such collaborations as Sommeil: A Concert for Sleep and reviews and
interviews with an international pool of artists and label owners.


Tanner Menard and Experimedia Records have assembled a roster of nearly seventy artists from around the globe including radio scientists, geologists, psychologists, sound artists, musicians, composers, installation artists as well as several well known figures in the ambient music scene. These artists submitted material for Menard to remix during the course of Sommeil: A Concert for Sleep.

Submissions include drones, found sound, recordings of natural and unnatural environments and synthetic music created on synthesizers and computers. A complete list of artists will be available
at the concert and will later be published on Tanner Menard’s blog. Select works, remixed by Menard will appear on a release on Experimedia Records in the months following the event.

Eine Klanginstallation von i8u (France Jobin)

15.12.2008 – 16.01.2009 tägl ab 11 Uhr

Kreuzgang / Minoritenkloster

Wir alle besitzen die Angewohnheit, den Raum der unseren Weg zu unserem Ziel umgibt zu ignorieren. Wie viele Durchgänge scheinen sie zu einem Ende zu führen, in Wirklichkeit aber sind sie das Ende selber. Als ich das erste Mal den Kreuzgang betreten habe war ich von der Einsamkeit und der Praktikabilität berührt. Ich habe begonnen, die verschiedensten Klänge in Krems UND Stein aufzunehmen, um daraus Klanglandschaften für die Leere dieses Raumes zu schaffen. So enstand diese Installation „und transit“


und transit

A sound installation by i8u (France Jobin)

15.12.2008 – 16.01.2009  from 11am to 5pm

Kreuzgang / Minoritenkloster

We all have a capacity to ignore the space we must use to get to our destination. Like most passage ways, they are a means to an end, and rarely are treated as an end in itself. Upon being introduced to minoritenplatz, I was immediately struck by the loneliness and practicality of this passage way. Since then, I have collected a number of field recordings from in and around Krems, in order to create a series of soundscapes based on the sound of emptiness in this space.

Vienna 11.20.2008 – Shut up and Listen!

Shut up and Listen! 2008

Interdisciplinary Festival for Music and Sound Art, Vienna, November
20th-21st, 2008

small – silent – lowercase

The interdisciplinary festival ‘Shut up and Listen!’ enters 2008 into its
third season. After ‘hoerspiel, radio art and acusmatic music’ in 2006, and
‘soundscape – field recording – phonography’ in 2007, this year’s focus is
‘small – silent – lowercase’. We’d like to concentrate on ‘small sounds’,
on music and sound art projects that work with reduced means,
and often take place at the threshold of perception.

Once again, our motto is: Let’s shut up and listen!

Interdisziplinäres Festival für Musik und Klangkunst

Das interdisziplinäre Festival *Shut up and Listen! *wird 2008 zum dritten Mal stattfinden. Nach den Schwerpunkten „Hörspiel, Radiokunst, Akusmatische Musik“ im Jahr 2006 und „Soundscape – Field Recording – Phonographie“ im Jahr 2007 lautet das diesjährige Festivalthema „*small – silent – lowercase*“. Die Aufmerksamkeit gilt also den ‚kleinen Klängen’ – jenen Musik- und Klangkunstprojekten, welche sich reduziertester Mittel bedienen und sich oftmals am Rand des Hörbaren ereignen. *Shut up and Listen! 2008* will herausragenden künstlerischen Arbeiten ein Podium bieten, welche diese Qualitäten zur Grundlage haben und sich damit vom lauthalsigen Mediengeschrei des vorherrschenden Musikbetriebs abheben.

Auch dieses Jahr gilt: Let’s shut up and listen!

MUTEK 2008 | Open_Lab_Ouvert
Mutek is once again hosting Le Placard May 29th -30th 2008 @SAT
(see below for schedule)

Placard is a headphone concert festival, playing with concentration, intimacy,time warp,and teleportation.This year it goes on for 97 days non stop, in different cities. It functions under a mode of open program,open for headphone rooms to create performance spaces where performers are welcomed to perform. Both the headphoneroom ‘owner’ and the performers use the inscription site to self organize the global program. The placard ‘owner’ receives in his room performers who have submitted a inscription via the site , and streams the shows to the other headphonerooms either passive listeners or waiting to perform.The site is designed to simplify communication inbetween the performers and the organizers, using automatic emails notifying of incomming inscriptions , accepted deplaced or refused perfomances ; also notifying performers of the creation of headphonerooms in their city.

The ring has grown , last year quite a few new cities got involved ;( helsinki , stralsund , benicassim .. (link to last year’s archive) ) .This year has allready started with a few prologues (maybe a preview of what might be one day a non stop placard network) – one in berlin during club transmediale – one in bratislava – and one in bologna -(see pictures and line-ups here) The official placard festival opening will be in montreal for the mutek festival and then move on.

May 29th 2008 @ 15:20 (EDT)

i8u will present: 10-33 cm resonance

i8u’s audio is inspired by the concept of string theory; 10-33 cm being the theoretical size of the strings that makes up the universe. Resonance is the vibrational pattern, which determines what kind of particle the string is. The type of particle is the movement of the string and the energy associated with this movement.
The soundscapes created mirror our limited understanding and imagination of these strings as they slip in and out of the dimensions we are aware of.
