veRmulsCHt, Anne-F Jaques & Tim Olive, J. Surak, Layne Garrett

veRmulsCHt "veRmulsCHt": a haphazard trio using video projections, field recordings, laptops, objects, saxophones, and spoken texts...most of which we collect during our trips through the universe. In putting them together, improvising with them, we deconstruct the narrative of the subjective traveler's memory in an incongruous collage-type style that creates bizarre combinations of sound and sight.

Anne-F Jaques & Tim Olive
Anne-Françoise Jacques is a sound artist based in Montreal, Canada. She is interested in amplification, erratic sound production devices and the construction of idiosyncratic contraptions and systems. Her particular focus is on low technology, trivial objects and unpolished sound. Active in performance since 2004, Jacques has performed at venues and festivals throughout North America and Europe, collaborating with Diktat, Martin Tétreault, Ignaz Schick, Éric Normand and Miguel A. Garcia, amongst many others. Jacques also has presented installations as half of the duo Minibloc and has composed soundtracks for animated films in an ongoing collaborative project with Julie Doucet. In addition to operating sound label and mail art project Crustacés Tapes, Jacques curates a bimonthly audio art show for the Berlin-based webstation Radio On.

Tim Olive has been writing about himself in the third person since the beginning of this century, when he left his minimal-prog-noise-rock band Nimrod, rejecting periodic rhythms and tempered pitch in favor of improvisation and open forms, exploring the full sonic possibilities of a single steel string, magnetic pickups and simple analog electronics. Extensive live action in North America, Asia, Europe and Australia has provided opportunities to play with a wide range of musicians in event-specific one-off contexts, as well as ongoing collaborations with Alfredo Costa Monteiro, Jason Kahn, Takuji Naka, Makoto Oshiro, Takahiro Kawaguchi, Cal Lyall and others. Recent collaborators include Jin Sangtae, Madoka Kouno, Joe Foster and Tetuzi Akiyama. A Canadian residing in Kobe, Olive has CD releases on Japanese, European and North American labels, receiving positive reviews in Musicworks, Signal To Noise, The Sound Projector and The Wire magazines. Upcoming releases include recordings with Nick Hoffman, Crys Cole, Martin Tetreault and Oshiro/Kawaguchi. He launched his artist-run label 845 Audio in 2012."-845 Audio
