"BLKBX performances navigate the parameters of ritual, image , identity, and the pop aesthetic"
BLKBX has been described as casting a type of “neo-soul alchemy” whilst performing, consequently leading him to be dubbed as a contender for “best kept secret” in Boston’s music scene. BLKBX has opened up for Doldrums, Moon King, and has shared the stage with Mal Devisa and Ruby Rose Fox on several occasions. In 2014 he performed at Boston’s first ever Illuminus new media arts festival, while also receiving a nomination for Artist of the Year on the New England Deli blog. Subsequently, HUBweek Boston also featured BLKBX as one of “Boston’s change makers”
A visual collaboration between SAMO & BLKBX. SAMO started working with BLKBX in Spring 2013, collaborating to create a stark minimalistic palette of choreographed visuals that emulated the sounds BLKBX created and performed. By using front projected light the visuals interact with the body of BLKBX, pushing and pulling the reveal of his body through positive and negative form. Since their first collective performance in 2013 they performed their immersive set experience across venues in the greater Boston area.
