JOE POTTS was hailed by The Wire as "something new and revolutionary." Though he holds degrees in Fine Arts he studied electronic composition at the California Institute of the Arts dropping in on classes taught by Morton Subotnick and James Tenney. He has composed electro-acoustic music exclusively since 1973 creating Art/Sound installations in the U.S., Italy, Japan and Norway. A founding member of The Los Angeles Free Music Society, a seminal experimental music collective, he is also the "man behind the curtain" in Airway, An art/sound collective that combines walls of sound with subliminal treatments, and treats live musicians as electronic signals which are processed and manipulated. For the past 10 years he has been composing for the "Chopped Optigan" a Seventies optical sampling consol organ that he has customized and rewired in order to create dense undulating chords of up to 64 notes at a time.
