Release — Bruit De Fond/​Background Noise

JSBJ launches their new book Bruit De Fond/​Background Noise at Golden Age in Chica­go on Novem­ber 12th, 2010.

The bor­der between dif­fer­ent artist­ic media is meant to dis­ap­pear to reveal inter­stices loaded with cre­ativ­ity.
This pub­lic­a­tion is one of them.
A col­lec­tion of images and pho­to­graphs con­cep­tu­al­ized and elab­or­ated around what links son­ic ele­ments to visu­al ones.
This pub­lic­a­tion exhib­its and ques­tions dif­fer­ent levels of inter­pret­a­tion between these two media.

How can one pho­to­graph noise? Silence? · Can we hear with our eyes and see with our ears? · Is noise inev­it­ably asso­ci­ated to move­ment and silence to inactiv­ity? · Why is noise a prob­lem?

In this pub­lic­a­tion we aim to dis­tance ourselves from the basic rela­tion­ship exist­ing between music and pho­to­graphy, avoid­ing pic­tures of gigs, bands or instru­ments.
We wish to present pic­tures that come out of the dir­ect col­lab­or­a­tion between noise and pho­to­graphy, taken instinct­ively and ran­domly. Pic­tures of places, moments or people where the notion of noise is per­cept­ible instantly.
We also wish to present works from people that deal with this theme in a con­scious and con­cep­tu­al way.”
