Propagation of uncertainty


In the ethereal realm of electronic soundscapes, the Buchla100 becomes not just an instrument but a vessel through which uncertainty finds expression. In this performance sound artist France Jobin – residing in Québec and currently artist in residence in Krems – explores the delicate dance between structured composition and the unforeseen, a sonic journey that mirrors the very essence of uncertainty itself.

France Jobin

France Jobin is a sound/installation artist, and film composer residing in Montreal (Québec, Canada), whose audio art can be qualified as “sound-sculpture", reveals a minimalist approach to complex sound environments where analog and digital intersect. Her installations incorporate both musical and visual elements inspired by the architecture of physical spaces. Her work can be “experienced” internationally in a variety of unconventional spaces and new technology festivals.
Jobin has solo recordings on many renowned labels, mainly popmuzik records (JP), LINE (US), ROOM40 (AU), nvo (AT), Baskaru (FR) and ATAK (JP), No-ware (CL-DE) and Editions Mego (AT).
While her music often makes use of restraint and limit, she isn't one to shy away from extremes. Her skillful interplay between highs and lows, louds and softs, creates an intricate narrative, which stretches the listener's perception and continually refocuses attention.
In 2021, she presented the world premiere Entanglement AV with Markus Heckmann at Mutek Edition 22. Greatly influenced by quantum physics since 2008, the pandemic allowed her to dive into this scientific universe. Entanglement AV is the first iteration of this large-scale project.

In cooperation with AIR – ARTIST IN RESIDENCE Niederösterreich and Klangraum Krems Minoritenkirche. With kind support of the Québec Government Office to Germany, Austria and Switzerland, the Federal Government of Lower Austria and the Federal Ministry for Arts, Culture, Civil Service and Sport.
