Buke and Gase
Buke and Gase is a Brooklyn-based musical duo. Band members Arone Dyer and Aron Sanchez are noted for their use of handmade instruments. In January 2019, they released their first album in six years, “Scholars”. In that gap, the duo have become established underground icons – collaborating with or acting as hand-picked support for fellow icons like Shellac, Battles, Reggie Watts, Animal Collective, Lou Reed & Laurie Anderson. Three years ago, Buke and Gase embraced electronic music and embarked on a major refinement & modernization of their instrumental creations. They developed Arx, a device that revolutionized their performance by allowing them to trigger percussive sounds, change effects on their instruments, and control vocal harmonies with the punch of an arcade button. Since then, they have largely retired the buke (bass ukulele) and gass (guitar-bass).
