[ELECTRONICA] And now, for something completely different…. HundredMillionThousand is the musical project of Persian/Filipino experimental producer Noel Jon, based up in Edmonton, Alberta. Jon’s HMT debut, lp1, was self-released on vinyl and digital formats last year and has received some mind-blowing acclaim. Paste went as far as to call it, “A stand out record of the year; the album is like no other you will hear,” while Exclaim! said ” “He marries Western and Iranian sounds in order to develop a varied sound that’s at once melodic, haunting, abrasive and ominous.” The album isn’t the whole picture, however, as Jon is equally concerned with post-production elements of design, and a/v presentation. Garnering comparisons to Massive Attack, Amon Tobin and even Portishead, HMT’s sound incorporates Persian instrumentation with aggressive downtempo percussion. In performance, HMT contextualizes his music with a visual narration of “Gordafarid,” — a suppressed female story teller in Iran — through audio/visual and laser elements. HMT will transform Mohawk Place on Wednesday, February 21 with support from local dubstep maven Basha up first.
