Standing Waves #8 : Anne-F Jacques @EMW

  • EMW Bookstore 934 Massachusetts Avenue Cambridge, MA, 02139 United States

Anne-F Jacques is a sound artist based in Montreal, Canada. She is interested in amplification, erratic sound reproduction devices and construction of various contraptions and idiosyncratic systems. Her particular focus is on low technology, trivial objects and unpolished sounds. She has ungoing collaborations projects with Tim Olive, Ryoko Akama and Julie Doucet, amongst others. She has presented several sound installations and live performances in North and South America, Europe and Japan. Anne-F is also involved with Crustacés Tapes, a postal sound distribution project.

Standing Waves is a monthly music, sound, and artists talk series with a concentration on one artist in the performance of and presentation about their work. Standing Waves is given over to a single artist for each event that allows for the performance and auditioning of their work as well as a presentation to the audience about it that makes for an intimate as well as rigorous experience, with the integrity and intention of the artist and work aligned and revealed. A distinguishing element of the series will also be a document in the form of a book that includes critical writings and photographs from the events. This comprehensive approach will elucidate the music, sound art and practices that overlap and comprise the artists’ works.  It was originally conceived by Morgan Evans-Weiler and Mobius Artist Jed Speare.
