Hiro Kone is proud to announce a new EP, The Unmoved Mover, which will be released on March 25th via Group Tightener. To celebrate, Hiro Kone is sharing the first single "Motion of Silence".
Hiro Kone is Nicky Mao, a New York City based musician and artist. Mao was a former member of Effi Briest and Up Died Sound. Her background in classical training and symphonic arrangements provides a stark juxtaposition to the raw sounds of Hiro Kone's material, evoking something both familiar and disorienting.
Brightly dark, softly cutting, airy and weighty, Hiro Kone brings together seemingly contradictory elements and synthesizes them to create form out of shapelessness. The second album from Hiro Kone, The Unmoved Mover, is a thematic extension of the self-titled EP, continuing to examine contradictions and actions in the psyche and soul.
Co-produced and mixed by former original Gang Gang Dance member Tim Dewit, The Unmoved Mover, examines the break between worlds, with void in form, and irreverent breaches in thought-The Unmoved Mover is both solitary and collaborative. The intimacy is in the absence created by Hiro Kone and Dewit.
Hiro Kone released the self-titled EP (Bitterroots, 2012), a live score for Cinema 16 at The International House of Philadelphia (2012), and a collaboration with David Van Tieghem x 10 Fits and Starts (RVNG Intl, 2013). Future projects include a studio recording of Migration Raga with Arp (Root Strata, 2014) and more.
