Latences

Visual and Sound Exhibition / Sound Artist / 2022

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' Dreams

Octophonic Sound and Light Performance / 90' / 2022

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.

Nadir

Acousmatic Music / 10’ / 2021 🏅

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.

About

Jean-Philippe Jullin is currently a student in digital music at the University of Montreal. It is through his previous work in the audiovisual field that his language was shaped, mixing elements of art and technology. Passionate about sound experimentation, and a composer of experimental music, he seeks a different way of thinking about music. His performances and installations aspire to establish a dialogue between man and his environment by bringing the listener into the work. Sound meets image and matter, addressing a multiplicity of techniques and meanings.

Recipient of two scholarships for excellence from the Faculty of Music, he won the 1st Desjardins prize in an interactive creation competition of the Société des Arts Technologiques de Montréal. His compositional work has been awarded by Musicworks magazine and the JTTP 2021 competition, as well as presented at the last conference on musical creativity through artificial intelligence. If his main field of activity is now oriented around sound creation in collaboration with machines, it is with the aim of conceiving experiences of active contemplation, where various elements are assembled to question our perception of space and time.

Artistic Approach

My artistic interests revolve around the relationship between the human and the machine in sound creation.

These relations are often approached in a binary way: the machine would be either a simple tool, neutral and malleable at will, or suspected of enslaving humans by making them dependent on it. For me, these relationships are more complex and are fleshed out by considering a wealth of possible interactions. Thus, I seek in my pieces to develop an equitable collaboration between the human and the technology, without one being totally submitted to the other.

I explore and experiment original methods of co-creation between the artist, the listener and the machine, through the use of machine learning. The digital tool then becomes one of the actors of the piece and pushes the artist and the audience to constantly adjust themselves. My works mobilize a diversity of media (sound, visual, etc.) in order to propose an original multisensory experience. Sometimes in the form of fixed music, sometimes in the form of immersive performance or interactive installation, my projects aim at questioning the place of the human being in his environment, the corporality in our societies and our relationship to matter.
