Garry Havrillay lives in regional Victoria, Australia. He is a broadcaster, music producer and composer realising his music with a mix of electronics, samplers and various hands-on instruments, and is one of few artists mixing all of his work in 5.1 Surround at the outset.
Until the end of 2014 he worked in radio for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, and his many years of professional experience as a sound engineer includes classical music recording (concert and studio), audio art, radio drama, documentary features, digital post-production, music editing and mastering, as well as on-air presentation, website, database and systems development.
Concurrently since late 1980 he has been an active volunteer with Melbourne's highly regarded specialist music station PBS 106.7FM, presenting the globally-minded weekly program Continental Drift until December 1998, and volunteering behind the scenes since. Garry revived Continental Drift for 3BBR West Gippsland in July 2021, and now also produces a one hour version for Australia's Community Radio Network (CRN).
There are several collaborations with artist and animator Annemarie Szeleczky, as both composer and editor for her videos. Their most recent, the hybrid-animation video Atrophy was screened in September 2017 at her exhibition of paintings, drawings, collages & prints called Toxic Beauty, and at MIAF 2018. The music for Atrophy is included in Garry's solo release Aurora.
In late 2017, another collaboration emerged as editor and sound designer for Christopher Basile's documentary feature on the life and work of the renowned Indonesian artist Kartika Affandi called Kartika: 9 Ways of Seeing.
His favourite activity is downhill skiing, and Japan and Canada were his most frequented pre-Covid holiday destinations.
