False Witness is an audio visual identity designed by artist Marco Gomez, an original founding member of the American artist collective, KUNQ. False Witness is an open format project that incorporates elements of DJing, video sculpture and sound installation. Soundscape designs and music found within individual performances revolve around themes that speak to the urban experience, particularly in states of trauma or heightened states of consciousness.

False Witness has performed and debuted work internationally at such institutions as MoMA PS1, the 2013 Venice Biennale, and the Frieze Art Fair in London. He has collaborated with various artists like Venus X, The House of LaDosha, and Juliana Huxtable, along with those from the KUNQ collective such as Rizzla (Fade to Mind), D’hana Perry, and Yulan Grant. False Witness has been featured and mentioned in such media outlets as Spin Magazine, Resident Advisor, Red Bull Music Academy, Interview Magazine, and Fact Magazine, among others.
