    Joe & Joe is the duo of Los Angeles Free Music Society
    staples Joe Potts and Joseph Hammer. Utilizing the Chopped
    Optigan and phonomontage techniques respectively, they
    create an immersive environment of great detail and gravity.
    Their performance at this year’s No Response Festival in
    Cincinnati marked the project’s first excursion outside LA.
    Their subsequent midwest tour is documented by this release.

    Joe Potts has composed electro-acoustic music exclusively
    since 1973, creating art/sound installations and performances
    internationally. A founding member of the LAFMS, he is also
    the man behind the curtain in Airway, combining walls of sound
    with subliminal treatments, utilizing both live musicians and the
    audience itself as electronic signals which are processed and
    manipulated. For the past 20 years he has been composing
    for an instrument known as the Chopped Optigan, a seventies
    optical sampling console organ that he has customized and
    rewired in order to create dense undulating chords of up to 64
    notes at a time.

    Joseph Hammer has focused on tape loops since the early
    80s, using phonomontage as a live process to assemble
    source material by hand with vintage magnetic audio gear. As
    part of the LAFMS, his groups Solid Eye, Points of Friction,
    Dimmer, and Dinosaurs with Horns have had an active
    presence alongside his constant solo practice.
