Buke and Gase
Buke and Gase
Arone Dyer and Aron Sanchez improvise, organize, mix, master, release and perform genuine, contradictory, rhythmically dense, thoughtfully lyricized and melodically-driven sonic landscapes. Always accounting for self-sufficiency they aim to perform each sound live, utilizing all available limbs to manipulate their sonic space. They filter and tweak the self designed instruments referred to in their nom de plume through multiple effects concurrently while triggering home-crafted rhythms in time, therefore, the duo is often seated during their shows, and the flurry of action onstage has led many an observer to question who plays what and how in the deceivingly wide aural experience. The girl sings her heart out; medics will siren their arrival shortly after the final note to replace her throbbing meat-ball with scotch tape and pliers.

Along their journey as Buke (byük) and Gase (gãce) they’ve toured the world and shared stages with Battles, So Percussion, The National, Swans, Owen Pallett, Tomahawk, Flying Lotus, Death Grips, Deerhoof, Reggie Watts, Lou Reed, Laurie Anderson, Tyondai Braxton, tUnE-yArDs, Mission of Burma, Tinariwen, Ahleuchatistas, Zs, Animal Collective, Landlady, How to Dress Well, among many others, proving to fit well in a diverse array of musical arenas.

Ryan Sawyer
Ryan Sawyer
Ryan Sawyer (b.1976) born in San Antonio TX started playing drums at the age of 11. Learning his craft throughout an early exposure to not only rock and jazz but the colloquial conjunto, zydeco, and punk rock musics of his home town. When he was 19 he recorded the now highly influential first record with At The Drive-In. Sawyer moved to New York in 1997 to pursue further his interest in improvised music. Sawyer has been leading a balanced life between composed and improvised performance. He has supported and collaborated with such diverse names as Rhys Chatham, Charles Gayle, Tv on the Radio, Boredoms, Thurston Moore, Nik Zinner, Kid Millions, Fiery Furnaces, Trevor Dunn, Gang Gang Dance, Mekons, Scarlet Johansson, to name a few. While this list is always growing Sawyer has been cultivating a tight group of peers to deepen collaborative possibilities with.

Formal bands have been a linchpin to Sawyer's integration of musical ideas. Stars Like Fleas, Tall Firs, Glass Rock, Family Dynamics, and Eye Contact, are some of the bands Ryan has been a key member in over the years. One of the more involved collaborations Sawyer has been working on is Lone Wolf & Cub; a project with his partner Suzanne Rogaleski. They have performed at Deitch Projectsk, Socrates Sculpture Garden, been twice asked to Ox-Bow artist residency and have taught at Cal Arts.
