Hello! I’m VJ Kinotropy and I love to smash video. Live.
I’ve VJ’d at hundreds & hundreds of events ranging from the world’s largest festivals and most famous venues, to the smallest, coziest cafes. Whether I’m smashing video in the stadium or the club, the fancy theater downtown, or a festival in the woods – audiences rave about what they’ve seen on my screens.
For me video art is all about freeing beautiful imagery from the confines of traditional narrative and mainstream media. Devised to accompany music of all kinds, my performance is all about accentuating the auditory experience through the eyes of the audience. I have a knack for the latest video technology and using my huge library of laboriously sourced video clips, I deliver a unique style of sound-reactive video collage.
Working in the entertainment industry has been a life changing experience. I’ve toured extensively and performed alongside some living legends of electronic dance music like Amon Tobin, Benny Benasi, and Steve Aoki. My festival highlights include New York’s Electric Zoo, Nocturnal Wonderland in California, Digital Dreams in Toronto and Chicago’s Wavefest, as well as local festivals like Shambhala, Bass Coast and Burnaby Blues & Roots Festival.

I then explained to him, as nearly as possible in layman's term, how the nature of the human eye necessitates, in kinotropy, both remarkable speed and remarkable complexity.
