Joel has written music for documentaries, short / feature films, podcasts, and dance.  He is a firm believer in experimentation/fusion with acoustic and electronic elements in sound oscillating through escapism and the mysticism of the present tense.

His music has also been featured and reviewed in Resident Advisor, The Wire, KQED, Foxy Digitalis, a closer listen, Fault Radio, Dublab, and many more.
