Joe Beedles is an artist working with audio, video and lights. Primarily an electronic musician, Joe also creates gallery installations that often see him removing himself allowing autonomous systems to generate content from algorithms or pre-set rules; where audio elements trigger lighting and projections simultaneously.
Drawing from and abstracting elements associated with different electronic music subcultures: skewed modular dubs and electroacoustic computer music techniques are synchronised with rapid projections and strobe lighting in real-time.
Joe explores the threshold between the real and the simulated in a pseudo-synesthetic fashion; hyperreal CGI avatars and warped footage of the surrounding environment are coupled with uncannily synthesised acoustic spaces and real world recordings.
His work has been featured in both club and gallery contexts in Canada, China and across the UK. His hypnotic AV live show has been featured at Future Everything festival at The Whitworth, Manchester, No Bounds festival in Sheffield and Cafe OTO in London. Joe has held residencies at The Banff Centre, Canada (2016) and CFCCA’s AiR exchange to Chongqing, China (2017).
