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 while concurrently triggering home-crafted rhythmic bursts in time, and the flurry of action onstage has prompted 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 (byūk and Gase (gāce) they’ve toured the world and shared stages with Ahleuchatistas, Animal Collective, Battles, Death Grips, Deerhoof, Flying Lotus, How to Dress Well, Landlady, Laurie Anderson, Lou Reed, Mission of Burma, the National, Owen Pallett, Purity Ring, So Percussion, Swans, Tinariwen, Tomahawk, TuneYards, Tyondai Braxton, Reggie Watts, and Zs, among many others, proving to fit well in a diverse array of musical arenas.
“It’s intricately structured, with cryptic moods contained in a shuddering shoegaze framework. But it feels like a pop song thanks to Dyer’s engaging vocal performance. There’s more to Buke and Gase than a good story.”- Pitchfork
