"Bassist Kim Cass is from an island off the coast of Maine, where he was introduced to bass playing at age 10. He quickly developed a unique style on the electric bass and began playing the upright bass at age 13. Developing this instrument in a jazz context became Kim's passion, as well as composing music featuring his upright playing.

When studying at the New England Conservatory of Music, Cass received personalized instruction from several virtuoso musicians including George Garzone, Ran Blake, Joe Morris and Joe Maneri. Cass currently resides in New York City. He has been featured in a wide variety of ensembles, executing music that is ever challenging and beautifully mysterious. Cass has performed with the likes of Matt Mitchell, Tyshawn Sorey, John Zorn and Bill McHenry. The solo album KIM CASS, released on Table and Chairs, is a showcase of Kim's upright bass playing and compositions. He is currently composing and practicing material for his next recording project, scheduled for 2018."

"My name is Ava Mendoza. I play guitars and stompboxes and write music. Currently I'm based out of Brooklyn, NY. I have played guitar for most of my life and been active for the last decade playing my own music and in many different groups. In any context I try to bring expressivity, energy and a wide sonic range to the music I play. I've toured throughout the U.S. and Europe and recorded or performed with a broad spectrum of musicians including singer Carla Bozulich (The Geraldine Fibbers, Evangelista), Fred Frith (Massacre, Henry Cow, Art Bears), Nels Cline, Jamaaladeen Tacuma, Weasel Walter, Tune-Yards, and more. I've played on recordings released by labels Weird Forest, Tzadik, Clean Feed, NotTwo, ugEXPLODE, Resipiscent, New Atlantis, and others.

Friendly critics have called me "Oakland's avant-jazz virtuoso" (Brad Cohan, Village Voice), "a versatile and virtuosic guitarist" (The San Francisco Film Society), "a wizard on a semi-circle of effects pedals, but… equally adept with FX-less technique," (Lars Gotrich, A Blog Supreme/NPR Jazz). I was recently named one of Guitar World‘s “10 Female Guitarists You Should Know”.

My main project these days is UNNATURAL WAYS .

"Saxophonist Matt Nelson regularly performs in a far-reaching, motley assortment of musical projects. Described as "one of the more unpredictable virtuosos in New York's underground" by Pitchfork, and "genre-bending" by Tiny Mix Tapes, his output often lies in the gray corners beyond categorization.

Upon graduating from the Oberlin Conservatory, where he studied with Gary Bartz and Paul Cohen, Matt moved back to his native Bay Area where he became an active member of the music community. He performed regularly with several bands, among them experimental pop outfit tUnE-yArDs, with whom he recorded and toured extensively in support of their acclaimed album w h o k i l l.

In 2010 Matt relocated to Brooklyn, New York. During his time there he has performed and toured as a member of Battle Trance, GRID, Elder Ones, Premature Burial, Skeletons, and the Weasel Walter Large Ensemble. He also performs as a solo act, where he often utilizes electronics and amplified feedback along with his saxophone, as heard on his record Lower Bottoms. "

"Described by Spin Magazine as "An apocalyptic, supersonic general of the banjo..." Brandon Seabrook has made a name for himself in the New York avant-garde music scene as an explosive guitar and banjo performer, relentlessly committed to immediacy and precision.

Seabrook honed his terror-inducing riffage skills at the New England Conservatory in Boston. He has since performed extensively in North and South America, Mexico and Europe, as a solo artist, bandleader and collaborator. He has been summoned by the likes of Anthony Braxton, Elliot Sharp and Joey Arias for his unpredictably spiked approach to improvisation and impeccable caterwauling. He has been profiled in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Magnet Magazine, Fretboard Journal, NPR and The Wire.

Seabrook Power Plant, the nuclear trio donned "a manic clusterfuck of merciless banjo torture" by the Village Voice, is Brandon's brainchild, blending the brutal energy of punk-rock with the intricate execution of through-composed avant jazz. The band has released two albums to much critical acclaim. Time Out New York praised the band's eponymous debut as "not only one of the most baffling experimental releases of the year... also one of the best."

Brandon is an accomplished solo artist, named Best Guitarist in New York City by the Village Voice 2012. In 2014, New Atlantis Records released his first solo album titled Sylphid Vitalizers. Noisey called the album a "dissonant guitar army...(with) mind-blowing prog-rock complexities - all at mind-numbing breakneck speed."

Brandon is currently working on two new albums with his noise-prog trio, Needle Driver and a new sextet featuring immoral, percussive compositions under the name Die Trommel Fatale. This recent work is a poly-rhythmic exploration of the dark side of the drum, layering cello, bass, electronics, voice and guitar against dichotomous drummers."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Snark Horse is a book of highly-detailed one-bar compositions by pianist/composer Matt Mitchell and drummer/composer Kate Gentile -- audaciously presented across six discs - that are designed to incite inventive, multi-directional improvisation. It is also the name of a revolving cast of musicians - including Mitchell and Gentile - who have performed this music in various combinations since 2013. Both Mitchell and Gentile's work are characterized by their exacting nature. Mitchell's prior release, Phalanx Ambassadors, was called by Popmatters "a high watermark for the new jazz... a breathtaking jawdropper from one of the best pianists and composers now working." Gentile's 2017 debut release, Mannequins, was described by The New York Times as "full of stuttering rhythms and teetering intervallic jumps; an array of textures - sometimes chiming, sometimes abraded - disorient you even as they deepen your listening."

Mitchell is a Pi Recordings stalwart, having released four prior albums as a leader and appear on eight others as a sideman. He is a member of many acclaimed ensembles, including Tim Berne's Snakeoil, Dan Weiss's Starebaby, Miles Okazaki's Trickster, Ches Smith's We All Break, Kate Gentile's Find Letter X, Anna Webber's Simple Trio, Jonathan Finlayson's Sicilian Defense, John Hollenbeck's Large Ensemble, Linda Oh's Aventurine, Jon Irabagon's Outright!, Caroline Davis's Alula, and the Dave King Trio. Mitchell has also performed with Steve Coleman, Dave Douglas, Rudresh Mahanthappa, John Zorn, Mario Pavone's Blue Dialect Trio, Quinsin Nachoff's Flux, Darius Jones, Michael Attias, Chris Lightcap, Donny McCaslin, Ohad Talmor, JD Allen, Rez Abbasi, and many others.

In addition to leading her own groups and co-leading Snark Horse, Gentile collaborates with guitarist Dustin Carlson and saxophonist Nathaniel Morgan in Secret People. She has worked with Michaël Attias, Tim Berne, Anthony Braxton, Cloud Becomes Your Hand, Steve Coleman, Dave Douglas, Marty Ehrlich, Michael Formanek, Miles Okazaki, God Is My Co-Pilot, Helado Negro, Chris Speed, Anna Webber, and John Zorn. Her 13-movement composition, "biome ii," was commissioned by the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), who recorded it this spring to be released as a full-length album.

Snark Horse began as a result of an experiment for Mitchell and Gentile to each write a single bar a day, a change from composing the sort of longer, micro-detailed pieces that they are both known for. This practice resulted in a book of some 70 compositions that are roughly equally split between the two musicians. Despite their brevity, each piece is a dense nugget of musical information, filled with quirky rhythms and layers of counterpoint for the musicians to unpack extemporaneously. Because the music is notated for the piano - with no specific charts for other instruments - any instrument can participate with each musician given the freedom to decide

what part of the score to focus on. The performance approach is jazz-oriented in that the improvisation is based on the written material, albeit the collective nature of the playing requires each musician to remain highly-attuned to the constantly shifting landscape. The one-bar compositions can be looped, played in sequence, made into vamps, transposed, inverted, alternated, and explored in basically infinite permutations. Rather than following a prescribed form, the musicians are empowered to use the full extent of their spontaneous imagination and creativity to guide things as they see fit, but to do it in a way that is respectful to the collective space.

The music has been performed live, in various personnel and instrumental configurations over years, which has helped Mitchell and Gentile explore the premise's unlimited possibilities. For this recording, they convened eight other singular musicians - some of the most uncharacterizable in improvised music - in varying pre-conceived combinations, all of whom have taken part in prior Snark Horse performances. All of the group pieces were recorded in one take, and much of the wonder exists in listening for how the music astonishingly transmutes, taking on new colors, textures and moods as a consequence of thousands of individual decisions that somehow collectively steer the music to its ultimate destination. When Mitchell and Gentile originally planned the recording session, the idea was to run through the material and then choose some representative tracks for release. But according to Mitchell, "The session had an unmistakable vibe - somehow all those badasses together created an undeniable synergy. It felt expansive, kaleidoscopic. Nothing was redundant and it really went far beyond what we could have imagined." In the end, they made the decision that including all the tracks gives a fuller picture of the magic that occurred over those three days. Interspersed among the group pieces are electronic works that Mitchell later composed (based loosely off other Snark Horse pieces on the album) and constructed alone that serve to further expand the aural palette and help make each disc a unified listening experience. The full, collected result - clocking in at almost six hours in length and presented on six CDs packaged in individual sleeves housed in a box with beautiful artwork and design by Gentile - is a work filled with inspiration, surprise and wonder.

Snark Horse is the apotheosis of Mitchell and Gentile's goal to create an expansive environment that encourages risk-taking improvisation through the use of compressed versions of the kinds of material they use in their longer pieces. Their compositions help foster a unique, highly imaginative universe for the musicians to show off their individual takes on this truly idiosyncratic music. The dauntingly ambitious project presents the musicians' collective resourceful creativity to truly valiant effect."-Pi Recording
