||JOE COLLEY / CRAWL UNIT
JOE COLLEY has spent ten years exploring the multiple conceptual possibilities
of sound, through music production, installations, or collaborations
with video artists, dancers, and even prisoners. His latest installations
attempted to dissimulate the artist by concentrating on the instigation
of unstable situations unique to the composition of random sound.
Colley first began recording under the moniker Crawl Unit in 1993,
and later dropped the name in favor of his given name in 2001. He's
released numerous recordings for Auscultare, Antifrost, ERS, Manifold,
C.I.P, and his own Povertech Industries. In 2006, Colley won an Award
of Distinction for the 2006 Prix Ars Electronica in Digital Music
for his album Psychic Stress Soundtracks.
Joe Colley has performed at numerous 23five sponsored events, including
the Tenth, Seventh, Sixth, and Fourth Activating the Medium festivals.
