In case New Yorkers need help shaking off lingering turkey-day excesses, Matthew Dear slips into NYC this Saturday, amidst his international Hetacomb tour under the hard-charging Audion alias.
And just what is the Hecatomb tour? In ancient Greek, “Hecatomb” is the word for “large-scale sacrifice or slaughter”; in Audion’s universe, it’s a live audio/visual experience like no other. Audion spent the summer and fall bringing Hecatomb to Europe, the US, and Canada. AUDION.ME has a preview of the kind of sights and sounds that await at Le Poisson Rouge. Ghostly’s own Clark Warner lends DJ support.
Audion’s 2009 has introduced a dizzying array of new tracks, from “I Am the Car”’s barely-there dub crawl to the lose-your-mind edge of “It’s Full of Blinding Light” (and many more). The prolific producer is closing the year out on a high note: “Instant in You” (available now as a free download) and “That’s That” show Audion at his immersive best, with “Push” destined to drop on December 7th.
