Julien Bayle’s work is based on both experiments and programming, and guided by concepts of time expansion and contraction. His interests in microsound and granular synthesis have recently pushed him to expand his work by opening up a new way of including field recording-based sounds into his practice. Through a positive-nihilist kind of deconstruction of processes, structures and results, he seeks to depict the complexity of society and a world saturated by meaningless information. He performs and exhibits his work internationally at festival and galleries such as MIRA Festival in Spain, ELEKTRA in Canada, Todays Art in the Netherlands, ACT Festival in South Korea, Day for Night in the US, the Museum of Modern Art in Buenos Aires, the David Roberts Art Foundation in London, and more.

He teaches creative technology and new media art as a guest professor in various art schools in Europe and beyond. He facilitated the launch of one of the few Ableton Certified Centers at the home of one of his more prestigious collaborators: The sound research lab Laboratoire de Mécanique et Acoustique in Marseille, France.

He teaches and provides consultancy on Ableton Live, Max for Live and especially Max 8 in music composition, generative processes, modular, and design strategies for audio-reactive visuals.

His individual one-to-one custom courses are widely acclaimed as ones of the most flexible in the field. Students and followers can attend online and on-site courses as individual lessons and group classes.
