Creative explorer of all things audio visual; Jonny Boy has been promoting, creating and mixing all things electronic for some time.
One of the co-founders of Culture Glitch Records, Jonny has been involved with signing, promoting and distributing music for artists across the globe. To date, Culture Glitch Records has released tracks from artists such as The Cyclist, Ryan Vail, Best boy Grip, Shammen Delly and The Crimson Underground.
For almost 20 years, Jonny has been DJing and hoarding good music to spin at many respected events, such as Celtronic Music Festival, Electric Picnic, Life Festival, Sunflower Festival, Stendhal Festival, Airbound – Croatia and more.
More recently, Jonny’s DJ sets have morphed into hybrid AV performance where he uses turntables, mixers, drum machines and FX pedals, while mixing visuals using a program he built to compliment his sounds.
Over the past few years, Jonny has been making all-sorts of installation based audio visual pieces and recently had an installation at Echo Echo Dance Theatre, called Future Musical Landscapes. The installation explored affordances and noise generation through various interfaces and technologies; some of which were used against their original purpose.
In 2017, Jonny began to build a modular synthesiser, which will be showcased at the festival.
A keen believer of sharing music and knowledge, Jonny opened Movin Music Academy where he teaches what he loves in one of Irelands finest electronic studios (Celtronic Studios). The studio will be open to the public as part of the festival, thanks to Celtronic.
