RS-232 (Joe Cantrell) has been active in the performing community of the Los Angeles Area for about 10 years and has shared the stage with such varied artists as; The Secret Machines, The Midnight Movies, Fog, O.S.T., and Jeremy Drake. His work spans numerous musical disciplines from jazz to indie rock to experimental music and incorporates differing instruments and techniques such as re-purposed devices, tape destruction and computer generated sounds, as well as more traditional instruments. RS-232’s music appeared on Simballrec’s 45 Seconds of… CD, and he will be releasing an album of minimal dub tracks on the blankartists lable in september, 2006. As an installation artist, RS-232 takes inspiration from the incessent acceleration of technology and media and the waste it produces. The more inseverable they become, the less our lives are defined by “genuine” interactions and experiences. With Mark Cetilia, he performed at the 2005 CEAIT festival held at REDCAT in the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, as well as having a sound installation at Soundwalk 2005.
