Joe Namy (Lebanon/USA) works with sampled sounds, documentary/music videos and photography, to investigate aspects of identity, memory, power and currents encoded in music. His ideas often revolve around the space between two technics turntables – how faders get faded and amplifications transformed.

Joe received a MFA from New York University, participated in Ashkal Alwan’s Home Workspace programme in 2011-12, and has independently studied jazz, Arabic and heavy-metal drumming. His work has been exhibited, screened and amplified at the Detroit Science Center (USA), Queens Museum (USA), Brooklyn Museum (USA) and Beirut Art Center (Lebanon); as well as various international underground dance floors.
