New York trumpeter Joe Moffett (Earth Tongues) in a solo album of absolutely impressive technique and intensely personal playing, at times using amplifiers and computer applications to generate unique sonic environments for the horn or playing beautifully lyrical tone, timbres, grunts and spits; an album of profound, introspective inner dialog.

• Show Bio for Joe Moffett
"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."-Neither/Nor Records (http://www.neithernorrecords.com/neithernorrecords/artists.html)

sample the album:
"Joe Moffett (of Earth Tongues) takes "trumpet, amp, and applications" and creates noise-scapes that throb, gyrate, and squeal with suffocating intensity."-The Brooklyn Rail
"Joe Moffett approaches his solo work with an ear toward how silence and inaction affect those things that are sounded and made present. Utilizing the trumpet in non-traditional ways, and often deconstructing it, he is interested in creating an inner monologue for the instrument that would not normally be heard. The listener is invited to enter uncertain ground where forms appear and disappear, and swaths of sound arrive and dissipate in unpredictable ways."-Carpe Diem
