crys cole is a Canadian sound artist working in composition, performance and sound installation.
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 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.
She has performed in Canada, Japan, Australia, Thailand, Singapore, the USA and throughout Europe. cole has ongoing collaborations with James Rushford (AU) (under the name Ora Clementi) and with Oren Ambarchi (AU). She has also worked with Keith Rowe, Lance Austin Olsen, Jamie Drouin, Mathieu Ruhlmann, Tetuzi Akiyama, Seiji Morimoto, Jessika Kenney, echo ho, Tim Olive and many more.
Cole’s work has been published on labels Black Truffle (AU), Penultimate Press (UK), Touch (UK), MeGO (AT), caduc (CA), Bocian (PL), Another Timbre (UK) and Infrequency editions (CA/DE).
She has exhibited in Canada, Czech Republic, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, the UK and Thailand.
