  LUCAS BRODE  “Aural manifestations of metaphysical struggles and a warped sense of reality. These are sounds and patterns created as an effort to maintain relationships with nature, truth, and organicism – while skeptically accepting technological modernity and the digital world.” Lucas Brode ,  a native of New York’s Hudson Valley, is a guitarist & composer who draws from jazz harmony, experimental rock textures, and African rhythms. In addition to studying jazz guitar and composition, he spent several years learning percussive concepts from traditional Ghanian master drummer, Yacub Addy. Lucas often performs solo, leads his own trio, co-leads the Post-Rock / Math-Rock hybrid Hannibal Montana, and is an active performer and improviser in the NYC and Hudson Valley experimental music scenes. Past and present collaborators include G. Calvin Weston, Kevin Shea, Luke Stewart, Colin Fisher, Zach Cooper, Al Margolis, and many more.  Lucas tours regularly, performing at museums, galleries, cafes, DIY spaces, and traditional music venues such as the New Museum (NYC), Knitting Factory (NYC), the Mothlight (Asheville), Rhizome (DC), the Windup Space (Baltimore), Spread Art (Detroit), Cafe Mustache (Chicago), and Gallery 5 (Richmond) to name a few. He has shared bills with many well known rock bands and avant-garde musicians throughout his career, including The Antlers, Tatsuya Nakatani, Oneida, Joe McPhee, Ava Mendoza, Hank Roberts, Kayo Dot, Brandon Seabrook, and others.

  ZACH COOPER  After escaping the the savage clutches of his native NYC, Zach Cooper has retreated to the warm slopes of the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, like many New Yorkers before him. While he continues to develop his personal craft and collaboration with Vic Dimotsis, as King Garbage, Zach has been keenly focusing the aperture of intention behind his music. While attending The University of Vermont, Zach was given the first ever Thomas L. Read Prize in Composition; an award presented by and with the namesake of his mentor/teacher, Thomas L. Read. Zach has fulfilled commissions for The New York Botanical Gardens, The Vermont Contemporary Music Ensemble, St. Michael's College and Black Mountain College Museum's {Re}HAPPENING among others.  Zach has provided music for numerous short films and can be seen playing various instruments in bands like King Garbage, Free The Optimus, Searra Jade & The Jazzy Folk, The Bread & Butter Band, STENCIL / MAGIC, and various ensembles and orchestras. Zach's music has been featured in such publications as Pitchfork, SPIN, XLR8R Magazine,The Fader, Ibiza Space Magazine and on record labels such as Styles Upon Styles, South Fork Sound, Last Night On Earth, and Slanted Black. In 2010, Zach launched end fence, an all-digital free-label specializing in undiscovered, high-quality electronic music. End fence has helped to promote such artists as Archie Pelago, Doctor Jeep, Create Her, and Zach's own kuxxan SUUM moniker.
