In the second of The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong’s ‘MO SOUND-BITES’ series of electronic music events, on Friday 16 June 2017, MO Bar collaborates with music promoter Jason Swamy to present a unique performance by the New York electronic musician & DJ Com Truise, for the first time in Hong Kong.

Renowned for his unique experimental and bottom heavy “mid-fi synth-wave, slow-motion funk”, Com Truise’s live performance of all original music materials at MO Bar coincides with the release of his new album Iteration and marks the artist’s musical inputs for the new, soon-to-be-released Blade Runner 2049 movie featuring actors Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling.

Notable for his singular style of melodic beat music, each piece ties together Truise’s “neon-streaked melodies, big drums, robotic grooves and bleary nostalgia,” telling a story of “longing, hope, anxiety, and triumph.”

“I try hard not to write from my personal life, but it’s inevitably going to seep into the music,” the artist explains. “It’s basically like I’m scoring this film in my head, but that film I’m scoring is also somehow my life.”
