Hypnagogia is an audiovisual study of autonomous algorithmic behavior, inspired by the semi-conscious state between wakefulness and sleep.
Using machine learning to control sound and video in an unsupervised manner, the installation continuously tends towards order or absolute chaos. An artificial agent then attempts to balance and maintain different types of visual and sound patterns, offering the possibility to explore the behavior of autonomous systems in an immersive experience.

Breaking the fourth wall and disrupting the conventions of the orchestral concert, Canevas: Symphonic Future invites the audience to wander through a musical ensemble of 34 virtuosos surrounded by four large screens broadcasting images generated by the music in real time.
It is an immersive musical experience that reimagines the traditional format of the symphony orchestra by making generative video based on real-time analysis of the orchestra's musical performance.

Photographic exhibition with sound compositions embedded into the frames.
Latences is a multidisciplinary collaboration that combines sound compositions and silver photographs. It explores the representation of the memory within the of the mind, by putting in unison stasis and movement. Each composition suggests, while allowing the viewer to dress the scenes of our own emotions.

Aus is the name of my computer. This work explores his return to life.
The goal was to achieve an equitable collaboration, without one having more control over the performance than the other. After aestheticizing the sounds, Aus chooses their order of playback during the performance and alters my actions to beautify them.
Half-algorithmic, half-composed, this work invites self-abandonment, an attempt to engage in a state of latency in order to resonate with a whole.

Le Chant du Canevas is an immersive work that invites you to explore a painting through your ears. An inclusive experience, designed by and for a blind person.
Loudspeakers are placed around the work in order to create an immersive musical structure containing sound ambiences. A vibrating jacket provide the users sensations to support the sound, and supports a physical exploration experience.

INUA is the inaugural exhibition of Qaumajuq, the new Inuit art centre at the WAG.
INUA brings together work created by over 90 Inuit artists from across the northern Canada, as well as some living in the urban South. The exhibition also features a selection of works by circumpolar Indigenous colleagues and, in some cases, collaborators from areas such as Alaska and Greenland.
INUA also celebrates the past work of Inuit artists, who have always embraced the future, drawn from existing collections.

A nadir is the point on the celestial sphere representing the vertical downward direction. It is the position of the sun at midnight. By extension, it means the worst time, the time of least hope and success.
Nadir is the study of the lowest point. This work describes a descent in layers, depicting a dystopian vision in which any sense of improvement is illusory.

Jean-Philippe Jullin is a master's student in digital music at the Université de Montréal. His work combines art and technology and focuses on co-creation with the machine through interactive and immersive systems. His performances and installations aim to establish a dialogue between humans and their environment through sound, image and space, using various techniques and meanings.
Recipient of two scholarships for excellence from the Faculty of Music, he won in a team the first prize in an interactive creation competition of the Society for Arts and Technology. His compositional work has been acclaimed by Musicworks magazine and the JTTP 2021 competition and presented at the last conference on musical creativity through artificial intelligence. By collaborating with machines, Jean-Philippe seeks to create experiences of active contemplation that question our perception of space and time.

My artistic interests revolve around exploring the complex relationship between humans and machines in sound creation systems.
Traditionally, this relationship has been approached in a binary way, with machines seen either as simple tools or as technologies that make us dependent and passive. Our interaction with machines, however, seems to me to be more complex and nuanced. A variety of interactions are possible, and playing with them can lead to a vast playground of sound and art.
In this way, I strive to foster a balanced collaboration between man and technology, where neither entity is totally subordinate to the other. The field of co-creation allows me to experiment around methods involving systems thinking and machine learning, seeking to create experiences of active contemplation that challenge our perception of space and time.
