Free Music Society (L.A.F.M.S.), Potts played in one of its premier units, Le Forte Four. A home-made sound scientist (with custom hinge-neck guitars, musical saw, electronics and tray of toys) whose idiosyncratic methodology produces sounds which are unique, alarming and funny. Joseph Hammer has kept busy creating experimental sounds in Los Angeles for over 20 years using the tape loop as his main voice. His first major project, Points of Friction began in 1980 with the intention of creating a surreal transportational environment via unidentifiable sounds fused with abstract visual projections. Wearing a white cotton glove, Hammer blurs the boundaries between digital and analog.

His live "phonomontage" uses computerized sources abstracted by hand with tape loops on vintage magnetic audio gear. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
