EPCOR CENTRE for the Performing Arts is thrilled to present 12 TONES, a sound work created by Gary James Joynes, and featured as a part of Beakerhead, Alberta Culture Days and Doors Open Calgary.
12 TONES showcases a unique interactive audio composition environment with visual representations of sound waves. Joynes created the installation by sweeping sound frequencies through a wave driver that finds the resonant frequencies.
“My explorations in art are focused on the active process of listening to, looking at, and feeling art; slowing down time and linking sensoria to allow for immersion in a whole body experience,” explains Joynes. “I began as a professional touring musician, morphed into the world of electronic sounds incorporating and mixing live visual elements in Live Cinema performance, and now work in the realm of combined visual and auditory stimuli, creating the experience of synaesthesia.”
Joynes will also be performing live under his moniker Clinker as part of EPCOR CENTRE’s Soundasaurus Festival of Multimedia Sound Arts happening in November.
Special thanks to Alberta Culture Days, Beakerhead, Doors Open and dc3 Art Projects.

Gary James Joynes is an award-winning sound and visual artist who has been active in the international electronic and experimental music performance community for years. He has more recently 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 and unending 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 had its world premiere at Toronto’s Koffler Centre of the Arts in September 2011.
Recent performances include the Art Gallery of Alberta (Edmonton), Koffler Centre (Toronto), Electric Fields (Ottawa), Mountain Computer Music Festival (Montana), Roulette Mixology Festival (New York), Soundasaurus (Calgary), Mutek_10 (Montreal), Banff Centre and the 2008 Leonard Cohen International Festival.
The last few years have seen Clinker’s sound and video work performed and exhibited in Canada and abroad in festivals and events including Sublimated Landscape / Sonic Topology @ ICA London (London, UK), Tanzstartklar Festival 2008 (Graz, Austria), Sprawl – Interplay_4 Festival 2007 (Amsterdam, Dublin, London, Bristol).
