J. Namy aka Electric Kahraba

Joe Namy is a Beirut based artist (with roots in Detroit) using a variety of media to investigate aspects of identity, memory, power, and currents encoded in music. His thoughts often focus on the space between two Technics turntables - how faders get faded and amplifications transformed. He received an MFA from New York University and has independently studied Jazz, Arabic and Heavy Metal drumming. His work has been exhibited/screened/amplified at the Detroit Science Center, Queens Museum, Brooklyn Museum, Beirut Art Center and less prominent international dance floors. Some of his projects fall under the sound art platform called Electric Kahraba, which operates as a sometimes radio show, sometimes delivering live DJ party dynamics, and sometimes installation art interventions that sometimes involve the two aforementioned modes of operation.
