He brings a passion for sound design andcutting edge audio exploration into all the work he touches. His music transcends the constructsnormally associated with a calculated “electronic artist,” pursuing music with meaning and purposewith downtempo, future bass and progressive electronic music, rife with emotional intent andpoly-rhythmic percussion.
Spoonbill
Spoonbill
Spoonbill began, as is often the case with birds of play, in the bush. Back then, though, he hadn’t grown his plumage. Back then he was simply known as Jim Moynihan and he had no feathers to speak of. What he did have, however, was a natural ear for rhythm, sound and vibe, playing kit to audiences in pubs some time before the law recognised him as a legal punter.

What started as a love of the drums progressively shifted to percussion, and finally settled into a love of electronic production. He may have had his first kit at 12, but in1998 he obtained his first sampler and a new direction in sonic creativity begun.

After completing a degree in Industrial design, he began freelancing as a product and sound designer on a broad spectrum of commercial and art-based projects that saw him exhibit his conceptual ideas in museums around the world. He won a wide range of audio production awards including the First Place and People’s Choice Award, Electrovision 2004, and Best Sound Design, 2003 in the 15/15 International Film Festival.

His sound installations toured both nationally and internationally, from ‘Imaging The Apple’ (New York 2010) to Melbourne’s renowned Hosier Lane (Nextwave 2006) and Federation Square (Sate of Design Festival 2004) to Tokyo Designers Block 2002, and 100 Percent Design (London, 2003)

As well as the design work, over the years he was busily honing his sonic craft and laying birth to new tracks unannounced to the outside world. In 2005 he decided to let his sonic persona take flight in the form of Spoonbill, with the debut album: Megafauna. Spoony’s iconic mix of improvised electronica, sound art aesthetics and heavily edited live instrumental recordings became an instant underground hit, the scene taking to this new Aussie direction in electronica like the collective duck to water.

As the demand for spoonytunes grew, Spoonbill minimized his attention on design and decided to focus on releasing and touring. After receiving 2 government grants for the creation of his follow up record, he got to work and, after 6 months, he produced his second, LP Nestegg (released in early 2007).

In 2009, Jim begun working as the head sound designer for Melbourne based interactive and game development studio; Current Circus. Over a 5 year period Jim developed music based video games and interactive installation projects for corporate clients such as Intel, Microsoft, Asus, Ocean Park (Honk Kong) & PrimeSense.

All the while Moynihan has continued to produce critically acclaimed releases such as Zoomorphic (2009), Airborne (2010), Astro Archipelago (2012), Boca Fiesta (2014), Tinkerbox (2015) and Squawkus (2016). His releases have been granted many accolades including Album of the week’ on ABC Radio national, PBS Radio Melbourne, and Triple R radio stations.

In both 2013 & 2015, Spoonbill was ranked 3rd on the influential Addictech yearly charts for Tinkerbox and Boca Fiesta, and received 4th place in 2009 for Airborne. In 2015 Spoonbill won ‘Album of the Year’ for Tinkerbox and came runner up for ‘Producer of the Year’ at the UK Glitch Hop Awards.

Since the Spoon conception, he has played countless live shows across the world at clubs and festivals in Canada, UK, Netherlands, France, Germany, Ireland, Spain, Croatia, Portugal, Russia, India, Israel, Japan, New Zealand and Australia.

Moynihan is a restless sonic author constantly defying genres and experimenting with the potential of the vast sonic canvas. He has carved a unique niche within contemporary electronic music, building a worldwide reputation for his idiosyncratic sound design and richly textured high production values.

Janover
Janover
Jamie Janover is recognized as a true innovator. His considerable creative output includes: being a master of the ancient percussion stringed instrument called the hammered dulcimer, inventing and performing on an instrument he calls the "mini-kit" (a miniature amplified drum kit), playing pyrocussion (fire drums) and creating the RealmsMobile (a recumbent tricycle with the mini-kit attached, enabling him to ride and play drums simultaneously).

Combining the innovations of modern technology with the wisdom of ancient instruments, Janover is achieving a creative balance between the electronic and the acoustic to create a unified field: music reflective of the nature of modern times.

For many years Janover has maintained a rigorous touring schedule, alternating between acts including: LYNX & Janover, ZILLA (w/ Michael Travis from SCI and Aaron Holstein), PRAANG (w/ EOTO & Steve Kimock) and The Everyone Orchestra (w/ a revolving lineup), among others. He is currently touring solo performing live PA set style electronic shows using his unique live rig which includes hammered dulcimer, laptop computer, mini-kit, sampler, sitar, electric kalimba and percussion.

When not playing music, you can find Janover connecting dots around the world in his extensive travels and collaborations in multiple creative realms including creating stunning images as a professional photographer, sculpture works using natural found objects and being an emissary for scientist Nassim Haramein of the Resonance Project, delivering fascinating presentations on the physics of unified field theory. Janover also produces music events including an annual electronic music festival in Colorado called SONIC BLOOM.

Grew up in Denver, always had a love for hip hop, but it wasn't till the end of my high school days when I started making beats and music. It started with hip hop, curved its way to some bass music, and now I'm doing my own sway of things 🙂 Just some good music with my hip hop taste in it all!
