Hiro Kone
Hiro Kone
Hiro Kone is Nicky Mao, a New York City based musician and producer. Her full-length LP "Love is the Capital" was released May 26, 2017 on Geographic North. Followed by "The Ghost of Georges Bataille", a collaborative album with Drew McDowall (Compound Eye, Coil) on BANK Records NYC in Spring of 2018.

In 2014, she released two EPs back to back. “The Unmoved Mover” (Group Tightener), seen as an extension of her previous Self-Titled EP (Bitterroots, 2012) it envisioned the factions and movements in the human psyche and soul from an indivisible prime source. While, “Fallen Angels” (Geographic North) in a nod to Wong Kar Wai, sourced Mao’s earliest memories of childhood in Hong Kong, repurposing vibrant fragments of the past through a disorienting array of sonic imagery.

Hiro Kone has participated in several collaborations, including a live score for Cinema 16 at The International House of Philadelphia (2012), “A Raga for Moog and Violin” with Arp (released 2016 on Geographic North), and for David Van Tieghem x 10 Fits and Starts (RVNG Intl, 2013).

Her next full length LP is due out on Dais Records late August 2018.
Tom Hall (Record Release)
Tom Hall (Record Release)
Tom is an Australian av artist residing in Los Angeles, California. His practice involves exploration into place, space and time. Drawing inspiration from peripheral spaces found in the everyday, he focuses on using multiple approaches to engage and recontextualize them to the public. Using sound and imagery as a means to translate emotion, create hybrid environments and notions of journey.

The outcome of these works are dense textural a/v performances that can be comforting, immersive, and at times challenging. Hall wishes to push the envelope of ‘av performance’ transcending established genres and equipment, aiming to create a unified synesthesia experience.

Spectra (Hall's LP on Elli Records) is a journey. As for the previous Fervor EP, Hall delivers an album based on the concept of “surround”. Merging a daily practice of experimentation, research on polyrhythms and syncopation, and the use of mathematical formulas connected with our world, Tom creates vast environmental based music.

A world on its own, Spectra is the metabolization of all these data-like sources, resulting in a warm analog fresco of the complex personality of the composer. Dreamy lines resting on rich textures, echoes of musique concrète, quasi-pop harmonic progressions, hypnotic percussive dark patterns, and again, nervous micro-time structures and a strong sense of construction, with a predilection for circularity; all this makes Spectra pierce the boundaries of music genres, to equally express urge of experimentation and a high degree of accessibility.
