For hundreds of years, Oakland, California’s POREST (aka Mark Gergis) has exploited reckless composition, performance and worldwide documentation via multi-instrumentation, field recordings, perverse cut-uppers, dirty bomb audio downers and whatever else gets in the way. On full-length albums released by Seeland, Resipiscent and Abduction records, Porest has issued a confounding collection of music and audio works ranging from mangled pop and surrealist radio-dramas to highly unrequested and diabolical protean folkloric ear-wash. Gergis is a contributor to the Sublime Frequencies label, producing collections of rare music, film, field and regional radio recordings from the Middle East, Asia and beyond. He is also a founding member of the shape-shifting Bay Area group MONO PAUSE and its Southeast Asian permutation, NEUNG PHAK.
