Perfection and Uncertainty

The thing about France Jobin's music that never fails to impress is that it works on so many levels. Listen to it at the threshold of perception (the way it is mastered) or at very high volume, on headphones or through loudspeakers, and you will hear new sonic relationships, new structures, a new logic every time. Things simultaneously are and aren't as they seem; sounds you hear are and aren't really there.

Press quotes

France Jobin painstakingly pares sounds down to their 'unique essence', from which point she is equipped to communicate intent without influencing its unfolding, a delicate balance between perfection and detachment.
THE SOUND PROJECTOR, August 2014

The Illusion of Infinitesimal gives shape to a huge work of static digital noise, the illusion of stillness in tiny spots and notes that fade into silence.
HAWAI, July 2014

Et c'est à cet instant que l'on se rend compte que même ce qui est infime peut nous atteindre et nous émouvoir. La démonstration de France Jobin est, dès lors, éclatante et elle prend ici une signification toute particulière.
LIABILITY, July 2014

A very good rapture in the fertile plot of minimalist ambient.
CHAIN DLK, June 2014

Musical architecture embellished with both subtleness and extensive harmony.
FELTHAT, June 2014

The beauty of this creation is that time simply flies by and becomes irrelevant once everything comes to its conclusion.
BLACK AUDIO, June 2014

A work of pure contemplation sound.
ONDA ROCK, May 2014

La musique de Jobin culmine dans un ravissement de la conscience qui rappelle l'art d'Eliane Radigue ou les précieuses atmosphères des disques de Stars Of The Lid.
DMUTE, May 2014

The purest form of ambient music.
BLOW UP, May 2014

An absolute masterpiece.
SKUG, May 2014

Ces "presque riens" sonores prennent au cours de leur développement une ampleur gigantesque.
TAPAGE NOCTURNE / FRANCE MUSIQUE, April 2014

Listening is maybe the art of touching the infinite, at least when sound comes in such delicate way as France Jobin does it on her latest album.
INFINITE GRAIN, April 2014

Warm and soulful ambient music.
DARKROOMRITUALS, April 2014

Les sons de la productrice montréalaise invitent à un abandon total de soi.
RIFRAF, April 2014

Minimum volume yields maximum results.
KINDAMUZIK, March 2014

A valiant and daring work that pushes the outer limits of minimalism and goes far, far beyond conventional musicology in its intense focus on the elementary units of sound.
WHISPERIN & HOLLERIN, March 2014

Un grand disque qui révèlera toute sa complexité sur une installation adéquate, où l'on se plaira à tenter l'expérience au seuil de notre perception, avant de monter sensiblement le volume pour laisser alors éclore tout le talent de cette artiste.
SWQW, March 2014

Some great music unfolds.
VITAL WEEKLY, March 2014

One of the most interesting publications in recent months.
NOWA MUZYKA, March 2014

Too pure and beautiful for organic instigation in spite of its thickness and audibility.
ATTN:MAGAZINE, February 2014
