False Witness

Represented Worldwide

False Witness is an audio visual identity designed by sound artist and producer, Marco Gomez. The False Witness project explores electronic music through a provocative queer lens, revolving around themes that speak to the urban experience, states of trauma or heightened states of consciousness. False Witness has been a resident DJ of New York City’s iconic GHE20G0TH1K club night since 2014, where he developed his signature aggressive sound that defies traditional genre conventions. His debut with GHE20G0TH1K Records came in the Spring of 2017 with his EP, The Art Of Fighting; a four track record that positions itself as the caustic intersection of Techno, ‘Bubblin’, Rave and queer identity. False Witness has performed and debuted work internationally at such institutions as the Venice Biennale, the Frieze Art Fair in London, and MoMA PS1. He is one of the original founding members of the American artist collective, #KUNQ, and is a current MFA candidate at the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, NY.
