Hiro Kone
A Fossil Beings To Bray

Most music is defined by what is there, Hiro Kone's has long been defined by what is not. Her electronic sound art is made all the more potent for her ability and willingness to create space, which her serves not only the musical but the political. 'A Fossil Beings To Bray' stands in opposition to excess and in her words, "techno-fascism".

Hiro Kone
Pure Expenditure

On Pure Expenditure, Hiro Kone, real name Nicky Mao, approaches electronic music with a brutal intent not heard since the earliest Factory Floor recordings. This all comes from Pure Expenditure's core theme, the non-utilitarian use of surplus energy. The album features the likes of group A and Little Annie, and was mixed by Teflon Tel Aviv's Josh Eustis.

Drew McDowall x Hiro Kone
The Ghost of Georges Bataille

Collaboration from two New York transplants, Hiro Kone (who used to be in Sacred Bones band Effi Briest), and Drew McDowall (once an official member of Coil). Together they use suspenseful electroacoustic experimentation to engage with Georges Bataille's notion that "respect is a detour that violence takes".
