Together at The Middle East on May 20, 2017

Featuring Clark, Com Truise, Andre Obin & more!

Together is a week long festival taking place across Boston and Cambridge celebrating Music, Art and Technology.

Chris Clark refuses to conform. The Warp Records mainstay has coloured outside the lines throughout his illustrious career, resisting the increasingly regimented and compartmentalised electronic music world with productions that bounce between genres with boundless energy, beholden to nothing but his own restless creativity. Across six albums, seven EPs, and innumerable singles and remixes, Clark has emphasised versatility above all, forging a sound that has incorporated innumerable strands of partystarting techno, abrasive electronics, somber piano tunes, and haphazard electro without ever obscuring the emotional truth at the core of all his productions. His ongoing creative process and future plans reflect an innate sense of the restlessness of the human condition that shines through in his work with propulsive and emotional singularity. “Music is always an imperfect facsimile of your original idea,” says Clark. Yet despite this, Clark’s music remains continually entrancing, incendiary, and utterly human.

Com Truise
Com Truise is one of the many personas of producer and designer Seth Haley, born and raised in upstate New York and operating out of a 12’-overrun apartment in Princeton, New Jersey. An admitted synth obsessive, Com Truise is the maker of an experimental and bottom heavy style he calls “mid-fi synth-wave, slow-motion funk.” The first Com Truise release was the Cyanide Sisters EP—distributed for free on the AMdiscs label—where mellow stone-outs like “Sundriped” and “Slow Peels” sat next to harder IDM bangers (“BASF Ace” and “IWYWAW”) and bumpy alt-funk trips (“Norkuy” and “Komputer”). After that came a single “Pyragony/Trypyra,” and a series of eclectic podcast mixes titled “Komputer Cast.” Now comfortably situated amidst the Ghostly roster, he’s prepping his next warped pillage, and hopefully not changing that name again.
