Julien Clauss is a French sound artist, who lives and works in Marseille. He followed the piano course at the Suzuki Institute of Strasbourg, studied music, acoustics, fluid mechanics and material sciences.
Since 2001 Julien Clauss focuses on sculptural sound works. He has developed installations and performances which bring into play the spatial dimension of the sound and the political dimension of spaces. Clauss seeks to engage the listener physically in the process of listening and uses the sound as a means of establishing a relationship between the physical body and his environment. His works approach notions like progress or anticipation. His esthetics of sound oscillates between micro-sound and ambient noise. He has developed different multi channels sound system, as well as interfaces and applications for spatializing and real time processing.
Clauss created the audio-tactile projects Pause and Stimuline with Lynn Pook. He collaborated with Locus Sonus sound lab since 2007. Between 2001 and 2007 Clauss worked as sound assistant for the french composer Pierre Henry. Furthermore, he organizes experimental electronic music events in atypical places (highway bridge, clearing, vaults, lac…) and over long durations.
A few places he has shown his work : Centre Pompidou, Paris, 2004, Musée Chagall, Nice 2007 (F), Club Transmedial, Berlin 2009 (DE), Casino, Luxembourg, 2010, (L), Mois Multi, Quebec, 2010 (CAN), Lac Erhai, Yunnan, 2010 (CHN), FullPull, Malmoe, 2010 (SWE), LAB 30, Augbsburg, 2010 (DE)
