Zimoun, born 1977, is an installation and sound artist from Bern,
Switzerland. He also founded leerraum , a label and network of artists who
explore space, time, void, form and structure on reductive principles and
careful, yet radical use of materials.
The sound performance «Statics III» has evolved from soundscapes (Statics I
& II), which was created in collaboration with the sound artists Mahmoud
Refat (Cairo) and Pe Lang (Zurich). «I am interested in a selective mix
between living structures continuously generated or evolving by chance and
chain reactions, contrasting with specifically delimited and contained
space, in which these events are allowed to happen. The compositional
intentions are manifesting themselves through my deliberate containment and
cautious monitoring. Thus, I am not busying myself with chance factors and
generative systems in order to discover unexpected results, but rather to
attain the vitality aspired in the compositions.» (Zimoun)
I/O Media is a collective of Toronto-based sound and video artists exploring
live, improvised performance. The group uses a wide variety of tools,
including homemade hardware and software applications, analogue and video
synthesizers, samplers and video mixers.
