Writing and performance
Josef Aukee is the author of the poetry collections Town and Country, Where Bright Stripes Go and Hill People. He recorded a collection, Afterbeat, and together with Giles Reaves, he recorded a live production of his poetry show Industrial Strength. His work ranges from meditations and satirical commentary on contemporary urban life to the poetry of place. Josef often colors his live performances with vocalists and instrumentalists who provide dramatic voices and experimental musical backdrops, using spare electronic sounds and pop and jazz stylings. He lives in Sausalito, California.
