:: Super Jean Francois Plomb (F) ::
Super Jean is a sound artist. After studies on the art school of Lyon and the FAC d' Visual arts of St. Etienne, he gradually turned to sculpturing large sound installations; mobiles and programmed random mechanics. It directed him towards a more musical installation by using contrasting elements in the current portable formula. Jean Francois uses suitcases filled with small simple mechanics and hanging electric motors: oldfashioned suitcases open to the public for listening ... the sound of rubbing on various surfaces is hypertrophied by the amplifiers that vibrate, that click, that whistle ... of the small gravels that roll and a small surface which trembles. All mixed and controlled by special consoles for each suitcase : he knows how to tidal wave in a puddle ...
