Joe Colley is a visual artist and composer. He investigates audio phenomena using field recordings and electronics. He records also under the moniker Crawl Unit and is the founder of the label Povertech Industries.

Chapel Action documents a 5-hour durational performance at Chapel of the Chimes, a columbarium in Oakland California. Spontaneous text is spoken into a small room and mixed with tones and sounds of amplified writing. Reflections of the room’s architecture become increasingly dense over time as meaning is eroded and words decay. Written pages from the action accumulate on the floor as the performance progresses.
