Mark Gergis [Sublime Frequencies / Sham Palace / Porest/ Neung Phak] USA
Mark Gergis – aka Porest – is a composer, performer, producer and international audio/visual archivist. Since 2003, with the Sublime Frequencies label, an ethnographic music and film collective out of Seattle, Washington – and since 2011, with his own record label Sham Palace, Mark has been fortunate to share decades of research and countless hours of archived international music, film footage and field recordings acquired during extensive travels in the Middle East, Southeast Asia and elsewhere.

Mark is known for compilations of international folk and pop music and field recordings such as Cambodian Cassette Archives, Choubi Choubi; Folk & Pop Sounds From Iraq, Saigon Soul, and numerous pioneering issues of Syrian Dabke, as well as Thai Molam, Luk Thung and pop collections issued between 2004 and the present. Mark discovered Syrian singer Omar Souleyman in 1997, and is responsible for bringing his music to the western market. In addition to his solo music project Porest, Gergis was a co-founder of the experimental Bay Area music and performance collective Mono Pause (1993–2004) and its offshoot Neung Phak (2001-present), which performs inspired renditions of Thai and Southeast Asian pop music.

Mark’s DJ performances are culled from his extensive international vinyl, disc and cassette archives and are accompanied by video selections from films, TV broadcasts and original footage from Southeast Asia, the Middle East and elsewhere. He has DJ’d worldwide at Sublime Frequencies events and co-founded the monthly event International Freak-out-a-Go-Go In San Francisco, California.
