Gary James Joynes
Gary James Joynes is a dedicated audio and visual artist, composer/musician/vocalist, and sound designer. He is fascinated by the sources of electronic composition and the ever-evolving language of technology; objects and mechanisms stimulate his process. As CLINKER, his work explores meditative spaces and the kinesthetic and synesthetic effects of sound and visuals.
Recent work includes an experimental musical score for the National Film Board of Canada’s feature documentary “Dirt.” PROVODY (2007-08) a piece which intersects audio and visuals under the tenets of the digital art movement known as Live Cinema. In 2006 music composition, sound/video design and live performance was commissioned for ISABELLE ROUSSEAU’S “BRONZE AGE” AV Project presented at EXPANSE ‘06. A video piece for ASMUS TEITCHENS “Teilmenge 24” was recently released on TJ NORRIS’s “TRIMIX” CD/DVD compilation (INNOVA Recordings 2007).
A forthcoming full-length audio work will be released on Dragon's Eye Recordings in Nov/Dec 2008.
