Gary James Joynes is a dedicated audio and visual artist, composer, musician, vocalist, and sound designer from Edmonton, Alberta. As Clinker, he explores the ever-evolving language of technology through electronic composition. In recent years, Joynes has produced several notable audio-visual works, including “On the Other Side… ”, a live-cinema piece commissioned by the 2008 International Leonard Cohen Festival .
The sound elements of his 2008 live-cinema were then re-composed into Clinker’s most recent audio work entitled “On the Other Side…(for L. Cohen)” released by Dragon’s Eye Recordings in 2009. In 2008 Clinker composed his first experimental film score for “Dirt ”, a feature-length documentary produced by the National Film Board of Canada . He has appeared 3 times before at Mutek 2003, Mutek LePlacard 2005 and in 2007, with his live-cinema performance piece “Provody” .
At MUTEK_10, he will reprise his Leonard Cohen tribute “On the Other Side… ” for the city that is home to the author and chanteur. This work explores Cohen ’s continued romance with the chiaroscuro of the human experience by creating an audio-visual deep listening environment that draws from the words and voice of Leonard Cohen. The lush bass tones of Cohen’s voice provide a point of departure for a journey of sound and light, as Clinker deconstructs and reassembles Cohen’s voice into specially designed sub-sonic frequencies.
The kickoff concert cascades from themes and content explored earlier in the day. Interspersed with screen work presentations, the evening explores performative manifestations of image and sound. Video by: Dominique Skoltz (y2o), Robin Dupuis (Lixiviat), Yan Breuleux (Tempêtes), and Maxime Corbeil-Perron (Ghostly) - and live audiovisual performances by Clinker with Peregrination, Blur rouge from Manuel Chantre, Le Révélateur, and Bardos by Sean Caruso.

“Exquisitely Hostile” Meets “Gently Unsettling”: Nate Wooley and Pigeon Breeders
Pigeon Breeders: Will Scott Tyler Harland, Myles Bartel
Pigeon Breeders are an experimental trio, started in 2011, specializing in improvised music that incorporates ambient, electroacoustic, noise, and psychedelic elements. Their music has spent several weeks on the CJSR Top 30, and they have been receiving critical acclaim. Their sound has been described as “Gently unsettling washes of sound . . . Intelligent, beautiful sonic art.”
Nate Wooley has become one of the most in-demand trumpet players in the burgeoning Brooklyn jazz, improv, noise, and new music scenes. He has performed regularly with such icons as John Zorn, Anthony Braxton, Fred Frith, Evan Parker, and Yoshi Wada. A combination of vocalization, extreme extended technique, noise and drone aesthetics, amplification and feedback, and compositional rigor has led one reviewer to call his solo recordings “exquisitely hostile”. Dave Douglas has called him “one of the most interesting and unusual trumpet players living today, and that is without hyperbole”.
