RESTOCKED!! An unreleased 30-minute piece by composer and sound artist Joe Colley. Composed from concrete materials and premiered at Field Effects, San Francisco, in 2002. Rehersal version discovered and slightly re-edited in late 2011.

Joe Colley (b.1972 Ft. Lauderdale) is a self taught artist concerned primarily with the phenomena of sound and it’s unique ability to activate a consciousness set apart from rational understanding in a way very different from visual or verbal means. This consuming interest has led to extensive experimentation with results occasionally made public through performances, installations, and commercially available recordings. These experiments have encompassed abstract electronic/noise composition, amplification of natural phenomena, investigations into phase, and creation of complex mass from layers of simplistic sound material, often with an attention to the mundane or pathetic.
Growing up in California’s central valley, Colley has travelled widely making field recordings and researching various cultures with a focus on ritual musics and the art of the insane. He has worked in warehouses, long-term care facilities, porn shops, and as an art instructor with developmentally disabled adults and juvenile detention facility inmates. His music journalism has been published under pseudonyms in various national magazines.
His performances have been seen as part of festivals including Activating The Medium (SFMOMA), Observatori (Valencia, Spain), Lampo (Chicago, Illinois), Phonotaktik (Vienna, Austria), MUTEK (Montreal, Canada), Beyond Music (Venice, Ca.), and Songlines (Mills College, Oakland, Ca.).
His notable recordings include “Desperate Attempts At Beauty: Conceptual And Research Exercises” (Auscultare Research CD) which was nominated for the Transmediale 05 Award, and “Psychic Stress Soundtracks” (Antifrost CD) which received an award of distinction at Ars Electronica 2006.
