Julien Bayle is a multidisciplinary and independent artist based in France and working at the juncture of sound & visual.He merges visual art, music composition, physical approach of sound art and data visualization by creating advanced programmed installations and audio/visual live performances.

He tries to address the question of disrupted continuum, interferences and representation of concepts by using physics of sound and error/artifact magnification.
His work is based on both experimentations and programming, using concepts of time expansion & contraction as main guidelines. His interests for all microsound and granular synthesis expand his work and open a new way of including field recording and previously designed sound into his own practices

He seeks to depict a world saturated by meaningless informations , societies complexity through a positive-nihilist kind of deconstruction of processes, structures and results.

He performed his audio-visual live performances in international festivals like ELEKTRA in Canada, or sound:frame in Austria and exhibited his work in galleries in Europe. He’s also a art teacher and he provides advanced technical courses about the place of technology in new media creation, invited by different art schools in Europe. He initiates the first Ableton Certified Center in south of France in the prestigious sound research lab Laboratoire de Mécanique et Acoustique in Marseille.

He co-leads the Bordille Records art label with François Larini, works closely with & records for Canadian imprint Yatra Arts and was selected artist of SHAPE Network during 2016.

In 2017, he founds and launches vøid label for administrating all his works.
