Aude Francois is multi-disciplinary artist living between Paris and Berlin, working with performance, photography, sound and live video. She regularly presents her video performances in international festivals. 
Her imagery plays with narrative structures, developing dreamy and intimate universes, exploring various forms of interplay between body, images in motion, deconstructive narrations and self-mythology. 
Her performances articulate live scenography protocols integrating video as an environment medium, often using real-time camera feedback, considering the black box as a possible oneiric space, where sounds and images communicate in a poetic and narrative journey.
She has developed several successful collaborations with international acoustic and electronic musicians, sound and video programmers, producing series of audio-visual performances where she manipulates time and images in evolving structures. Her work oscillates between digital and analogue medium, combining original cross-border techniques between real-time video feedback and digital and acoustic sounds.  She often uses Overhead projectors, Dia projectors, typewriters, clocks, that are amplified via micro-contact microphones,  combined with acoustic and digital sounds. She uses live cameras and pre-recorded video samples, sometimes combined with programing language such  as pure data, seeking to develop a closer interaction between video and sound events. Fascinated by archaic imagery and  mechanical objects, she also create costumes and scenography, seeking to immerse the audience in a dream box, using her figure as a “personnage” reenacting a forgotten memories inside a poetic journey.

Her projects include The Body_exposed; Poe-Si [with Mirko Signorile and Marco Messina]; Poe-Si [with Marco Messina/99 Posse and Mirko Signorile]; Cabaret Noir [with Pasquale Bardaro];  Kuul_Ma [an experimental audiovisual project in which organic electronic sounds interact with the changing  landscape of visual artist Davide Lonardi]. In 2008 she published as a soloist Anti-Gone, a concept album which  bases its narrative on Greek mythology. In 2008 she began a collaboration with canadian cellist Julia Kent; their performance  (initially under  the name of Intermittenze) will soon become a stable project in progress with the name Parallel41 [a musical/visual/improvisatory project released internationally on french record label Baskaru // may 2012] Her sound works include Whimsical Cartography – selected among the works which  will be exhibited in the collective multimedia show E-ArtQuake in commemoration of the earthquake in Irpinia; Re_di_Sound [Radio Papesse], a tribute to Marcel Duchamp (Call for Revolutionary Sounds).Her growing interest in soundscapes leads her to conceive of A tale of two cities: a series of audio collages designed to portray the similarities and differences of two cities which lie on the same parallel, Naples and New York. This work has become a radiowork produced for RadioPapesse vs Radia network, entitled CrossingsAmong her current  projects Exqusite What [as both curator and creator] a collective inspired by the Surrealist practice  of exquisite corpses dedicated to the creation of an audio-visual web platform; La Reverie/La Sogneria [curator/creator]_a multimedia space  linked to dreaming in which, as if inside a globe indexed by locations, issues, and time periods,  one can choose to “enter” [in mp3] into the story of a dream or to travel between multiple dreams (in progress). She has recently been  invited by GIRRL [girrlsound :digitalgirrl [an Australian organization supporting women  working in the field of sonic  and digital art] to curate and produce a series of radio podcasts entitled  The Cat Cinderella with the aim of promoting  the dissemination of works by women artists on the brink between net_art, sound art and audio documentary. With the moniker Apres Soon she is working on a new solo album: a blend of drones and field recordings, electronics, voices and string instruments. Barbara is currently working atQuasi.Memory:a sound installation which uses rediscovered private memories [old photographs, letters from strangers, sounds of objects no longer in use, semi-forgotten nursery rhymes, etc.]. Some audio and visual artists she has recently collaborated with include Leonardo Rosado; Mark Waltersaka Savaran; Marco Messina; Mathias Van Eecloo aka Monolyth & Cobalt; Enrico Coniglio; Elio Martusciello, Airchamber 3; Roland Quelven; Andrea Serrapiglio; Ginetta Corelli; Nicolas Bernier; Davide Lonardi; Andrea Ics Ferraris. In 2012 she became a member of AIPS (ITALIAN SOUNDSCAPES ARCHIVE)

BARBARA DE DOMINICISoltre a fare uso della voce, ama raccogliere suoni, manipolarli ed inventare trame sonore.Tra i suoi progetti Poe-Si[con Marco Messina/99 Posse e Mirko Signorile]; Cabaret Noir [con Pasquale Bardaro]; Kuul_MA [progetto di sperimentazione audiovisiva in cui un’ elettronica di tipo organico interagisce con i paesaggi mutevoli del visual artist Davide Lonardi]. Nel 2008 pubblica come solista Anti-Gone, un concept album che ha come filo conduttore narrativo la mitologia greca. A partire dal 2008 inizia una collaborazione con la violoncellista canadese Julia Kent le loro performance (inizialmente sotto il nome di Intermittenze) presto diventeranno un progetto stabile ed in progress dal nome  Parallel41L’ etichetta francese Baskaru pubblica il loro cd/dvd a maggio del 2012. Tra i suoi lavori sonori Whimsical Cartography _selezionato tra le opere che saranno esposte nella mostramultimediale collettiva E-ArtQuake in commemorazione del terremoto dell’ Irpinia; Re_di_Sound [Radio Papesse]-un omaggio a Marcel Duchamp (Call for Revolutionary Sounds). Il suo crescente interesse per il paesaggio sonoro la porta a concepire  A tale of two cities: una serie di audio collage volti a ritrarre analogie e differenze di due città che giacciono sullo stesso parallelo Napoli e New York. Questo lavoro è diventato un radio documentario prodotto da Radio Papesse vs Radia network dal titolo Crossings.  Tra i suoi progetti in corso Exquisite-What[di cui è curatrice/ideatrice] un collettivo ispirato alla pratica surrealista degli exquisite cadaver dedito alla creazione di una piattaforma web audio/visiva;La Reverie/La Sogneria (curatrice/ideatrice) _uno spazio multimediale  legato al sogno in cui, come all’ interno di un  mappamondo inidicizzato per luoghi, tematiche es epoche si potrà scegliere  di “entrare” [in mp3] nel racconto di un sogno o di viaggiare tra più sogni (in progress). Di recente è stata invitata da GIRRLSOUND[un’organizzazione australiana a sostegno delle donne che lavorano in ambito di sonic e digital art] a curare e produrre una serie di podcasts radiofonici The Cat Cinderella  con l’ intento di promuovere la diffusione di lavori di artiste a cavallo tra net.art, sound art e audio documentario. Con il moniker Apres Soon, è a lavoro su un nuovo album solista: un assemblaggio di drones e field recordings, di elettronica, voci  e strumenti a corde. Attualmente sta lavorando a Quasi.Memory. Un’installazione sonora che fa uso di memorie private ri-trovate [vecchie fotografie, lettere di sconosciuti, suoni di oggetti ormai in disuso, filastrocche semi-dimenticate ecc.] Tra le sue collaborazioni più recenti con artisti sonori e visivi spiccano Leonardo Rosado; Mark Walters aka Savaran; Marco Messina; Mathias Van Eecloo aka Monolyth & Cobalt; Elio Martusciello, Airchamber 3; Enrico Coniglio, Andrea Ics Ferraris;  Roland Quelven; Andrea Serrapiglio; Nicolas Bernier; Ginetta Corelli; Davide Lonardi. Dal 2012 è membro dell’AIPS (archivio italiano dei  paesaggi sonori)
