Top 5 Concerts in Metro Phoenix This Weekend
Com Truise - Sunday, March 2 - Crescent Ballroom
As Com Truise, east coaster Seth Haley struggles with something resembling a gear fetish, owning close to 15 vintage synthesizers. Naturally, his instrumental monsters stem from some of the most influential '80s New Wave acts, from New Order to Berlin to Depeche Mode, but his grip on EDM, self-described as "mid-fi synth-wave, slow-motion funk" has made him a perceptive addition to Ghostly International's label.
Besides penning masterful mindfucks like Galactic Melt and In Decay, Truise has remixed Foster the People, Neon Indian and his doctored Daft Punk track made it on the Tron: Legacy Reconfigured soundtrack. Not surprisingly, Truise is pretty interested in scoring a film, but doesn't really have any directors in mind.
"I'm trying to think of a project based thing, regardless of who's really doing it," Truise says over the phone. "I just think my music would be a separate part of it."
Truise's ideal film would concern the 1959 Dyatlov Pass Incident, when nine hikers were brutally killed by a "compelling unknown force" deep in the mountains of Russia. Their clothes were highly radioactive when tested and despite showing no signs of struggle, two victims had fractured skulls, two had broken ribs and another was missing her tongue. According to Russian scientists, the force to cause these particular injuries would rival a car crash. Some people blame UFOs, others blame the Soviets, but the cause of death is a mystery. -- Troy Farah
