Buke and Gase
Buke And Gase: Since 2008, New York. Arone Dyer and Aron Sanchez.
Instrumental inventions, due to limited size, breed compositional challenges that lead to instrumental upgrades, further influencing musical direction. Buke: atypically small 6-string guitar. Gase: guitar/bass hybrid. Minimal big beats from foot-activated, low and high frequency percussion. Musical content may consist of volatile rhythmic scenery and panoramic vocal melodies. Discerning difficult intervals: fives and fifteens are fun!
Buke And Gase have performed festivals and stages throughout North America and Europe with: Deerhoof, Death Grips, Flying Lotus, Laurie Anderson, Lou Reed, Tinariwen, Extra Life, Daniel Higgs, Owen Pallett, Tune Yards, Reggie Watts, The National, Mission of Burma, Talk Normal, The Ex. Festivals: All Tomorrow’s Parties, Moogfest, Big Ears, Bang On A Can, Pop Montreal, Cross-Linx, Fusion Fest and more.
“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
“The light gets into Olsen’s work: beyond her gorgeous guitar, whether sawdust punk, reverb laden slow dance or near silent reverie, it’s in the way she’s been steeled by sorrow, a process of galvanising that never ends.” – NME (9/10)
