English :In the midst of Internet data overload, vibrofiles.com attempts to sketch a panorama of sound arts, via artist¹s pages, events documentation and theoretical reviews. As with the vibrö CD boxes, we are exploring these territories trough a series of 'snapshots' organised into a random and subjective cartography. In order to render the stream of current events, our recurring newsletters catalyse bits of information to be shared, expanded and exchanged.
French : À l’heure ou Internet foisonne de données, vibrofiles.com tente de dresser un panorama des arts sonores, au travers de pages artistes, de documentation d'événements et de chroniques. Comme dans les coffrets CD Vibrö, nous défrichons ces territoires au travers d’instantanés dont l'organisation dresse une cartographie aléatoire et subjective. Pour coller plus encore à l'actualité nos newsletters périodiques catalysent des informations à échanger, compléter et partager
Vibrö is a sonic object, at the crossroads of an art multiple an a specialised magazine.Vibrö intends to render experiments in the fields of electroacoustics and Lo-Fi more 'audible'. It also tries to illustrate the growing presence of sound in the fine art practice. Published twice a year in a digibox format, vibrö includes an audio compilation and a series of cards that catalogue the artists and tracks.
Our samplers include artists from all walks of life and artistic backgrounds. Its plurality introduces the many genres we will be dealing with. Destined to promote and support the artists, the sampler is a gathering of major names in sound arts and a springboard for pioneering newcomers. It can be used as a reference archive, a portable sound gallery or soundtrack for a wide range of spaces.
vibrofiles.com provides information on the contents of the compilation, but also on the wide range of developments in the area of sound arts. Our purpose is to gather the many scattered communities and create an international network. Designed as a web ring, it will grow to facilitate the understanding and archiving of written and audio files.
We hope you enjoy the selection and carry on supporting the project so that it can match the creative endeavours that inspired it.
The CD is the physical counterpart of this site. Our biannual compilations can be purchased online or in specialised stores, special issues will be occasionally released.
So far, the response and contributions have been very encouraging,
a living proof that something is happenning out there...
