Cuero Obra & Rye Wax presents HIRO KONE + OBLATE
HIRO KONE is Nicky Mao, a New York based musician and producer. Her recent full-length LP “Love is the Capital” was released in the Spring of 2017 on Geographic North.
The eight songs on «Love is the Capital» highlight Mao's austere, politicized techno battling for the greater good. Songs are visceral meditations of rhythm, noise, and melody, in the vein of Pan Sonic, Chris & Cosey, Muslimgauze, and Kangding Ray.
Since the release of “Love is the Capital”, she has been busy performing live, including a string of shows on the West Coast with her sometime collaborator Drew McDowall (Coil, former Psychic TV). Their collaborative album “The Ghost of Georges Bataille” is due out later this year on Bank Records.
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.
OBLATE is Lindsay Alexander Corstorphine, best known as the guitarist of “evolving future human irregular punk band” Sauna Youth, as well as a member of the bands Primitive Parts and Cold Pumas. Oblate is Corstophine’s solo electronic project and this will be its first ever live performance.
