Gary James Joynes – PEREGRINATION (Live Cinema) Performance @ dc3

5 Mar


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.
