"New York-based trumpeter, improviser, and composer Joe Moffett approaches his work with a keen interest in unconventional sounds and forms, collective composition, and the intersection of words and music. He is co-founder of a number of ensembles such as Earth Tongues, with percussionist Carlo Costa and tubist Dan Peck; the Kaplan/Merega/Moffett Trio, which released its debut, Crows and Motives, in 2014 on Underwolf Records; and Trismegistus with bassist Sean Ali, trombonist Ben Gerstein, percussionist Devin Gray. Moffett's explorations into text and music are evident in his work with the experimental art song duo Twins of El Dorado, with vocalist Kristin Slipp. The ensemble's debut, Portend the End, was released on Prom Night Records in 2013."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Caprichos is the debut release of Cecilia Lopez and Joe Moffett as a duo ensemble. The album is a collection of improvised pieces for synthesizer and amplified trumpet. Brusque, mercurial, and intense, Caprichos lurches from circuit-bent gurgles to horn blasts to waves of static, making for an unpredictable listening experience. Cecilia and Joe have been working together since 2018 when Cecilia's Machinic Fantasies premiered at Roulette Intermedium in Brooklyn, NY. In their duo, they continue to explore methods of distorting, deconstructing, and merging their instruments in unconventional ways."-Tripticks Tapes
