Blanck Mass

  • Blanck Mass (the solo project of Benjamin John Power of electronic noise duo Fuck Buttons) brings his incredible live show to Australian shores this June. The Fuck Buttons musician has been making music under the moniker since 2010. His initial creations were to be studio only, and were a collection of beat-less shimmering soundscapes, released on Mogwai’s Rock Action label. Soon his crafted worlds were to reach the ears of billions as his track, “Sundowner”, was used extensively in the 2012 London Olympics Opening Ceremony (chosen by Underworld’s Rick Smith and performed by London’s Symphony). Ben then followed up his self-titled debut with a successful EP release on Software into a more beat driven territory, and has since taken Blanck Mass out of the studio and into the live sphere, touring as main support to the likes of Sigur Ros and Jon Hopkins. His latest offering, Dumb Flesh (via Sacred Bones Records), was written, produced and recorded by Benjamin in a number of different locations over the space of a year and released to immediate acclaim.
