Nosaj Thing — Live at Music Hall of Williamsburg (4.4.15)

Shortly before his gear and hard drives were stolen, Nosaj Thing played a set impossible to replicate

Sometime last month in the parking lot of a Houston House of Pies, Nosaj Thing lost his lifeblood. Jason Chung was fine, but his artful shadow alias had all of his hard drives and controllers stolen in a tragic car theft. The files, songs, stems, and rough drafts all vanished in a puddle of broken glass and splintered Screw tapes.

You can read this week’s LA Weekly cover story from POW assassin, Peter Holslin, which chronicles the treachery — or this other feature from Paul “Nussie” Thompson.  The set that Chung had been playing is no more, unable to recreate, as ectoplasmic as the original music itself. Thankfully, his set at the Music Hall of Williamsburg was captured on April 4, and recently uploaded to SoundCloud by his label, Innovative Leisure. It captures him at peak necromancy, nimble and cryptic. Satellite radio for UFO’s, dark prophecy, and some of the dharma. You can order Fated here.
