Bon Music Vision - The Emotion Industry

Recorded between London, L.A, and Canada using tape and vintage analogue equipment - Emotion industry is a narrative reflecting on sense of self, and identity in the digital realm - a visual album of dream logic scored through the lens of Afro Futurism, Asian Industrial electronica, Sound System music, Post Rave and Dub.

The Emotion Industry is the pairs audio visual comment on the modern digital landscape and its influence - "Theres an unfathomable power to blur reality as we know it. The ability to decern what's real and what's not is becoming increasingly difficult - social media super computers using data points to push your buttons for manufacturing consent, Ai articles and deep fake images add to the illusion. The ability too really 'see' the objective reality of what's been created is the new enlightenment"

Composers, Xiaoqiao, Speakers Corner Quartet , Ibukun Sunday and composer sounds artist Akiko Haruna feature, as well as another collaboration with Lucinda Chua, having already joined forces on her debut single 'Until I Fall' (4AD.) . BON were recently invited by Professor Leila Adu to participate in NYU's Critical Sonic Practice Symposium Elegy, discussing a range of topics from music practice, theory, history and political activeness alongside Jason King, Isabelia Herrera, and Dr Kwami Coleman to name but a few.

The Emotion Industry is a follow up to their 2021 ambient LP Pantheon ("A modern Classical Masterclass" - Electronic Music Magazine) and their 2022 Sci-fi EP release with Akiko Haruna First Sight- which gained the attention of Tom Ravenscroft's BBC Radio show.

Bon (Bon Music Vision) Yerosha (Swiss, Indonesia, Greek) and Alex (Welsh, Ghanaian, Native Canadian) have contributed to projects on Warp Records, Hyperdub Records and 4AD, McQ (Alexander McQueen), and HBO's Euphoria as well as producing film scores for Paramount Pictures Netflix and Nowness
