Born in 1976 in France, Julien Bayle started to explore sound and music around 1990 with a number of projects trying to show a different vision of music sequencing.
Working at the crossroads of visuals and sound, he seeks to merge visual art, music composition, physical approach of sound art and data visualization by creating advanced programmed installations and audio/visual live performances.
He performs under the names Protofuse and Julien Bayle.
He has been teaching digital arts at École Supérieure d’Art et de Design Marseille-Méditerrannée since 2013 focusing on Ableton Live, Max/MSP and Max for Live as well as artistic and aesthetic. He is also an official Ableton Certified Trainer involved in programming and knowledge sharing.
Currently, he has been researching new ways of performing audio-visual live performances, building his own tools and softwares by coding alternative sequencers.
He will show his new live project named ALPHA in 2014 involving sounds, visuals, algorithms and providing a unique experience where sounds and visuals are merged as a dense electronic matter in which the audience can deeply immerse.
He is also about to exhibit disrupt!on, a 3-screens-based audio-visual installation in London and to perform !mpulse, a 4-audio-channel-based live performance in Monaco at the end of March 2014. Both projects are connected through the internet and had been commissioned by the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco.
