King Vision Ultra / Geng
Geng is a New York City-borne/residing sonic explorer - active since the mid-90's in the city's underground and experimental communities - and founder of PTP (Purple Tape Pedigree), a collective, plus imprint, existing as “purveyors of weaponized media.” Currently, Geng writes/produces publicly as King Vision Ultra – alongside a handful of associated collaborative projects. Live, his practice has been reviewed as a “brutal ritual ... drawn from dystopian nightmares ... meant for catharsis, not escapism” by Washington City Paper, as he explores trauma, violence, sleep paralysis, aquaphobia, and the communication bridge between self-actualized identity and spirit.
Collaborations include Matana Roberts, Moor Mother/Black Quantum Futurism, Jonathan Gonzalez, Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste, Julia Santoli, Via App & YATTA, Dreamcrusher, DeForrest Brown, Jr., Rena Anakwe, Stacy Lynn Smith, Maren Celest, Channel 63, The Diplomats, and Atoms Family. In Spring 2019, he scored/performed a movement of Jonathan Gonzalez’s Lucifer Landing II at Abrons Arts Center. In Fall 2018, he co-curated/performed in Revision Suite with Salome Asega for Abrons Arts Center. He's been a featured performer at Park Avenue Armory, Issue Project Room, MoMA PS1, Abrons Arts Center, Ende Tymes IX & X, Transference Fest (Chicago, IL), Sonic Acts Festival (Amsterdam), 3HD Festival (Berlin), Forward Festival (Washington, DC), and then some.
