After studying engineering and focusing on developing his technical skills, Bayle soon realised it wasn’t technology that interested him the most. Instead, he felt it was creating that would fuel, enrich and drive his life. And he was right: after an impressive decades-long career, Julien keeps exploring and experimenting the creative possibilities of algorithms and equations.
With sound as his most reliable tool, he’s been creating immersive installations and performing live to make audiences worldwide feel the power of technology and experience how beautiful a mechanical sound can be. That’s precisely one of the things one can feel when listening to Violent Grains of Silence, his “most important album to date”, as he himself puts it. And with his impressive body of work, which he’s presented in multiple festivals and cities. We got the opportunity to chat with Julien during MIRA festival about the balance between creativity and technology, how does parametric design work, his installation Structure, and working with one of the best sound systems in the world.
