CRYS COLE is a sound artist that works and performs solo and in collaborative improvisation settings. She works predominantly with contact microphones, minimal signal processing and no-input mixing board.
cole's approach to sound emphasizes subtlety and discretion, guided by a fascination with microsonics that test the limits of audibility and intentionality. By drawing attention to the texture and delicacy of minimal sonic environments, cole aims to create a heightened sense of awareness not only of the sounds she creates, but of the environmental sounds that arise during listening - and ideally, of the listener’s own self-consciousness as a perceptual body and agent as well.
She has collaborated with musicians; Keith Rowe, Oren Ambarchi, Massimo Pupillo, Christof Kurzmann, Jeffrey Allport, Magali Babin, Kai Fagashiski, Julie la Rousse, Sam Shalabi, Christine Senaoui, Clare Cooper, Roger Tellier-Craig, Joshua Stevenson, Rinus van Alebeek and Alexandre St-Onge amongst many more.
