Joe Colley (b.1972, Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.) is a self-taught sound artist from Sacramento. His lo-fi experiments encompass abstract electronic composition as well as amplification of natural phenomena. Recent releases include Desperate Attempts at Beauty (Auscultare Research), Anthem (C.I.P.) and a collaborative project with Francisco López, Knowing When to Not Know (Antifrost). In addition to performing, Colley also runs the label Povertech Industries, releasing material by Michael Prime, Eliane Radigue and CM von Hausswolff.
