BIO

Gary James Joynes (aka Clinker) is an award-winning sound and visual artist who has been active in the international live audio-visual and experimental music performance community for years. Recently, he has embarked on a broader artistic exploration using his analog synthesizers and custom-made machines to create “visual-sound” as photograph/drawing/sculpture hybrids along with immersive installation environments. His latest live cinema work Peregrination was recently included in the 2013 Alberta Biennial of Contemporary Art. The most recent chapter in Joynes’ visual catalog presented a solo exhibition entitled Topographic Sound at Edmonton’s dc3 Art Projects in early 2013 and featured his critically acclaimed work Ouroboros which premiered at Toronto’s Koffler Centre of the Arts in September 2011. Other performances and exhibitions have been included in MUTEK_IMG, Montreal; SoundsLike, Saskatoon; Koffler Centre, Toronto; Electric Fields, Ottawa; Roulette Mixology Festival, New York; Soundasaurus, Calgary; Sublimated Landscape / Sonic Topology at ICA London, UK; and Tanzstartklar Festival 2008, Austria; Sprawl – Interplay_4 Festival 2007, Amsterdam, Dublin, London, and Bristol.
