During the two-hour screening, the playlist you will hear is the result of four-month’s research through the i8u musical archive. The purpose of the research was simply to weave together a series of tracks to create a fitting atmosphere for immerson*: “two “consuming” evenings of minimal sound art… in which both artists and audience are mutually drawn into the same heights and depths of the sonic/emotional spectrum.” as i8u eloquently states.
The works you will hear are to be felt as well as heard.
The criteria for i8u’s choices are based on the sensitivity of the music, the unique identity of each artist and the immersion quality of each track. The order is designed to set the stage - sounds utilised as an introduction to the event that follow – whilst the conclusion to the evening is faded out elegantly, leaving room for the heart and mind to drift and dream into infinity.
By preparing the piece – stitching together works by various artists – i8u has discovered that although each work selected for her list may be appreciated independently, the entirety of the lengthy piece may be considered a work in its own right!
Along with the conceptual rigour and fine ear i8u has honed over the years, not only does she wish to stimulate the mind, the emotions and the body, she simply hopes you enjoy the work! *immerson, is a concert event and philosophy initiated by France Jobin (i8u) which proposes to create a dedicated listening environment by focusing on the physical comfort of the audience through a specifically designed space. The premise for immerson is to seek out and explore new perceptions and
experiences within the listening process by pushing the notion of “immersion” to its possible limits.
