“Topographic Sound” by Gary James Joynes will only be open for 3 more nights.
Do not miss this.
Here are the times:
DC3 Art Gallery
10567 – 111 Street
Gary James Joynes takes over the dc3 Art Projects space for a solo show of work in multiple media, all created using sound as his primary creative tool.
The Topographic Sound series – from where the exhibition title is taken – explores sound as a powerful force akin to the unstoppable impact of time and nature in the formations of geology. Six very large photo-based works own the gallery main space and can be seen as graphic scores of the musician manipulating sand and sound, or as evidence of the effects of nature and vibration on a microscopic scale as it is related to the effects of much larger vibrations – earth movements and solar rotation.
In conjunction with this work we are proud to host Tritone (2013) a 100 day long decaying auditory chord and it’s wall-based sculptural echo, a continuation of his Alberta Bienniale performance to its conclusion.
Gary James Joynes (aka WIND ROSE aka Clinker) will reprise his 2013 Alberta Biennial Live Cinema performance once more for Edmonton on March 7, 2013.
PEREGRINATION is a live cinema work reflecting on the nature of sound and its visual and material nature. A meditation on Joynes’ visual experimentation using historical scientific instruments and anachronistic musical technology. PEREGRINATION combines compositional sound elements and improvisational use of recorded footage of live play of the wavedriver machinery he uses to create in the studio.
For this his 2013 Alberta Biennial piece he brings the early phase of his career in Live Cinema together with his most recent experiments in cymatics by composing and triggering his waveform animations live in concert and accompany these visual sound wave animations with layered vocals and overtone singing. The performance runs through movements of varying intensity rising to a chordal crescendo.
All elements of his Frequency Painting work connect sound and visual definitions of sound. This new work expands these senses with aspects of space and time in his most ambitious Live Cinema work to date. Joynes’ explorations and experimentations in art are focused on the active process
of listening to, looking at, and feeling sound; slowing down time and linking sensoria to allow for immersion in a whole body experience. PEREGRINATION (Live Cinema) works to offer new opportunities to an audience for the understanding of the importance of deep listening and viewing life, and the wonderful journey that this brings us.
Special thanks to the Alberta Foundation for the Arts for supporting the creation of this work.
Video genius Jared Brandle was kind enough to bless Zebra Pulse with a video for “They Drove Him To The Edge of Town”

The evening, part of Alberta Culture Days, will involve a series of duos pairing electronic artists with acoustic musicians, many of them familiar to the Edmonton scene.
Artists will include San Diego flutist Marion Garver Fredrickson in her first Edmonton stage appearance since the BEAMS Sea of Sound Festival in 2005, and Shawn Pinchbeck who will perform for the first time since successfully defending his doctorate thesis earlier this year at the University of Birmingham, UK.
Also on the bill will be Pocket Universe, who released their latest CD, Torment, in 2012, and performance art-oriented act Agaperaygunexperiment.
Rounding out the bill will be Don Ross, Wayne DeFehr and Gene Kosowan.
Admission is $10 ($5 to BEAMS and Harcourt House members).
Stephen Ferris, cyclist and prolific artist. Recently coming off of Whitehorse’s 24 Hours of Light Mountain Bike Festival, and having designed the cover for Pigeon Breeders album, “Nocturnal Reveries” it makes you wonder, when does Steve have the time to create all of these very detailed and intricate pieces.
