DRAGON'S EYE | PRESS RELEASE
Dragon's Eye Recordings is please to present On the Other Side... (for L. Cohen) by Clinker (Edmonton, AB). On the Other Side... (for L. Cohen) originated as a live cinema performance commissioned by the 2008 Leonard Cohen International Festival in Edmonton, Alberta. With On the Other Side... (for L. Cohen), Clinker explores Cohen’s continued romance with the light and dark inside our human experience. Using the lush bass tones of Cohen’s voice as a point of departure, Clinker deconstructs and reassembles Cohen’s voice into dreamlike soundscapes.

On the Other Side... (for L. Cohen) was created using analog synthesis, processing, and his own voice. Clinker's vocals have become a major sound source for creating harmonic layers and overtones and was used extensively in this piece. This work continues his interest in meditative spaces and the kinesthetic and synesthetic effects of sound.

CLINKER :: Unloading EP | REVIEW
4 out 5
Clinker is Alberta’s sound craftsman and graphic artist Gary James Joynes whose latest self-release is packaged beautifully on the out/inside. Dedicated to his dad, the four tracks herein, comprised of approximately a half hour of engaging and cinematic drone (and other things that go bump in the night), is something of a surprise from last year’s self-titled release. Where he’s been pretty icy before, the thaw has mounted and the residual wash of more golden tones ring through the murkier side of Joynes’ aural spectrum. Speaking of music for airports, this is akin to sounds drifting outside an old abandoned rural jet hangar that’s open ended; the siren call of a lost civilization. There is something largely ephemeral here, as the tones develop at a lax and dreamy pace.

CLINKER + MANRAYGUN
(Acme to Irricana - Remix) for iHuman "Feedback" Project
DUE SOUTH... (TOWARDS IRRICANA)


In early 2011 Clinker was invited to contribute a sound piece for the iHuman "Feedback" inner-city youth project, a remix inititaive founded by alt-country-folk-rock band manraygun. Arists were asked to select a song from the album "Everything is Temporaray" with all proceeds from a limited edition vinyl release and charity concert going to support inner city youth at risk with arts programming. Clinker's selection, "Acme to Irricana," ventured well off of secondaray highway #9's original trajectory, deep into the vast rolling prairies of his native Alberta. The rich instrumental pallete of manraygun was reconfigured into an imagined landscape of golden wheat and vivid yellow canola(sound) fields... Due South... towards Irricana.
