Celebrating our 2nd year with the next instalment of our Beyond Sound series of Exhibition / Live sets only events.
This time we present New York based musician and producer Hiro Kone.
Her recent full-length LP “Love is the Capital” was released in the Spring of 2017 on Geographic North.
In an exclusive interview with "The Quietus" Mao, a former member of Sacred Bones post-punk outfit Effi Briest, explains that Hiro Kone "is the Iroquois phrase for 'I have spoken'. It is used when signing off, and 'kone' attaches to it whichever intention one feels at that moment."
Mao is a multi-instrumentalist, who studied classical music as a child but abandoned her violin training to play guitar in punk bands as a teenager. Currently, she uses a combination of hardware, synths, and modular to cultivate her sound.
Represented by POLY. artists internationally, Hiro Kone close collaborator is Coil's Drew McDowall - their collab album "The Ghost Of Georges Bataille" will be released by Bank Records this Spring. Her next solo album is scheduled to be out on Dais Records in August.
Supported by local sound and visual artist Astrid Gnosis and Ireen Amnes.
