NEKSYS: Eric Zinman (drums, synthesizer), Bob Moores (trumpet, elec. guitar, electronics), Michael McCaw (elec. guitar).
Neksys is a post-rock, post-jazz improvisational trio focusing on the moment, the musical nirvana of now. Eric Zinman, Mike McCaw and Bob Moores seek to expand the horizons, the ears and the minds of each listener mixing the familiar and the unfamiliar in a heady sonic stew.
Neksys plays a music of contrast and metamorphosis rather than theme and variation. Layers are submerged and resurfaced rising and falling in a three part exchange often sounding more than 3 musicians.

DME Trio: Eric Dahlman (trumpet, overtone and throat singing, electronics), Michael Knoblach (multiple percussion), David Williams (flutes).

Elements of free jazz, Chinese folk, whirled music and ambient sounds.
Trumpet infused soundscapes, dappled with percussion, electronics, field recordings, ethnic folk. Influences: Miles, Bjork, Jon Hassell, etc.)

Bonnie Kane: Tenor saxophone, flute, electronics, entrepreneur (own record label), producer (own free-form music series)
“I view my work as part of the next generation of the avant-garde - or at least, an evolutionary branch - formed from equal exposure to the avant-garde, hard core and the psychedelic: listening to Albert Ayler, Sun Ra, and Captain Beefheart, while simultaneously going to Butthole Surfers and Dead Kennedys shows; opening for White Zombie, The Boredoms, and Nik Turner, and playing the Improvised and Otherwise, What is Jazz, Brno and No Jazz Festivals. I can present my work to you as noise, free jazz, psych rock, free improv, jam band, bio-composition - along with a bunch of other labels as needed.”
Even in the lower downtown (NY) alternative, Free-Jazz scene Bonnie is kind of a living legend amongst her peers, having played and collaborated with many a real legend and other established and up and coming musicians…
