Far away, inexplicable forces shape matter into form. And so life begins: people arise from dust and are drawn to each other by the magical frequency of 2,750 Hz.

Captivating, beautiful and stirring, the short film 2.57k allows us to see and hear the extraordinary.

Gary James Joynes, aka Clinker, is a highly accomplished electronic and experimental music performance artist. Using his analog synthesizers and custom-made machines, he explores visual sound as photograph, drawing, sculpture hybrids along with immersive installation environments for reflection and deep listening/viewing experiences.

His live cinema work Peregrination premiered in the 2013 Alberta Biennial of Contemporary Art and has since been performed internationally. Clinker’s Live Cinema work On the Other Side... was commissioned by the 2008 International Leonard Cohen Festival and toured internationally. He also composed the film score for the National Film Board of Canada’s award winning feature documentary Dirt which premiered at the Vancouver DOXA Festival in May 2008.

Joynes’ most recent audio-visual solo installation is the large scale Broken Sound at Edmonton’s dc3 Art Projects. Previous solo shows include Frequency Painting: 12 Tones, Soundbursting No. 1 and Topographic Sound which featured his critically acclaimed work Ouroboros which had its world premiere at Toronto’s Koffler Centre of the Arts.

Joynes has been repeatedly invited to The Banff Centre of the Arts to advance new ideas in visual sound and music which has now become known as the Frequency Painting Series.
