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.
Ava Mendoza
A guitarist/songwriter/composer who's worked with Tune-Yards, Carla Bozulich (The Geraldine Fibbers, Evangelista), Nels Cline (guitar hero of Wilco), members of ROVA saxophone quartet, members of Caroliner, and more.

Critics have called her "a versatile and virtuosic guitarist" (The San Francisco Film Society), "a wizard on a semi-circle of effects pedals, but… equally adept with FX-less technique," (Lars Gotrich, A Blog Supreme/NPR Jazz). She was recently named one of Guitar World's "10 Female Guitarists You Should Know".
