Thomas Wincek is an instrumentalist by choice,
and a computer operator out of necessity.
His primary interest lies in the intersection
of organic and electronic means of making
sound. He has studied sound, sound composition
and improvisation with Nicolas Collins, John
Corbett and Rob Drinkwater. As the main force
behind the experimental electronic dance act
EmotionalJoystick, he has worked at integrating
the tenants of improvisation and sonic exploration
into the rubric of contemporary dance music.
As a result, he has released music on a variety
of independent labels, toured many portions
of the United States and Europe, and has had
the opportunity to play alongside such acts
as Tortoise, Venetian Snares, No Means No,
Dillinger Escape Plan, Otto von Shirach, Doormouse,
and Eight Frozen Modules.
