Dan, who answers via telephone, is at first
reluctant to explain what his music is about.
He offers, with vagueness uncharacteristic
to him, \u201cit\u2019s light... lighthearted... I don\u2019t know.\u201d
He seems suspicious of my intentions, but soon
sucks away into a charming wave of glossolalia.
\u201cIt\u2019s about rainbows, boners, goats, waterfalls,
eyelashes, rocks, dirt, pine needles, needles,
eyeglasses, sore throats, curly hair, straight
hair, straight or gay, CD rainbow reflections,
universal temples, happiness, sadness, eternity,
bathtubs, yarn, mermaids, dolphins, the color
blue... red, purple, light shades of yellow...
Alexa, Joe, Daniel, Andy.... no. No, no, no, stop.
There is a silence, and Joe turns off the
speaker on his phone. I can only hear
one end of the conversation, now. Joe

speaker back on. Dan\u2019s gnomish voice
gurgles sweetly from the other side,
and adds one more influence to his list:

guitars and their minds to create electronic
compositions that explore the nature of the
spirit. They take a break from the capital city
to tour the Pacific Northwest this month.
\u201cIt seems like Dan and I are
projectors,\u201d says Joe, anchored by
a pithy, feral expression, which
looks beyond objects \u2014 as though
he is channeling his description
from a source outside of fractaled
While Joe himself is not verbally remiss, his
articulative powers \u2014 remarkably strong \u2014 rely
on a fluidity that can at times defy lingual
convention, in favor of abstraction. He finds
the word he was looking for, which is
