Clinker has presented Live Cinema performances throughout Canada and internationally at sound art and new media festivals, and he has held a residency at the Banff Centre from which his Frequency Paintings work developed. His work has been commissioned for (and toured with) the International Leonard Cohen Festival, and he has released a full-length audio work on the Los Angeles Sound Art Label Dragon’s Eye Recordings.
