Boomkat Product Review:
NYC shapeshifter Hiro Kone is joined by Speaker Music (DeForrest Brown Jr), travis (ONO), and Muqata’a for a more fluid navigation of electronics, dark ambient sound design, and chamber classical.
Crafted during lockdown, ’Silvercoat The Throng’ is Hiro Kone’s most personalised set of recordings yet, written under the title’s poetic directive to create “possibility, rescued from darkness” and also “resist the urge to fill the space". The results oscillate through cinematic routines and into weightless sensations that largely eschew the chewy rhythms that have typified her previous records.
Without a club or gig space to attend to, Hiro Kone has travelled inward to discover and better articulate her own sound, with results cloyed with horror/thriller motifs. However, those looking for her whirring rhythmic mechanics will find them lurking toward the 2nd half of ‘Mundus patent’, and in the insectoid detailing of ‘Reciprocal capture’ featuring DeForrest Brown Jr’s Speaker Music, and abstracted like a Muslimgauze dub on the title track starring Muqata’a.
