Gospel of Mars Aaron Moore (Volcano The Bear), Jef Brown (ex JOMF), and Bob Jones (Eaters) traverse a musical landscape that runs a rich gamut of hypnotic modal jazz, frenetic rhythmic meltdowns, and outer limits explorations. Their sound is forged in tiny rooms across New York City where audiences are invited to be delighted, battered, cracked up, and mesmerized over the course of a single set.

Anaïs Maviel is a vocalist, percussionist, multi-instrumentist & bursting creative mind. As a fearless improviser, composer & performer, she expresses hybrid forms recalling her French & Haitian origins, invoking ancestral and cyborg streams. As a scholar, she achieved an epic research on afrocentric music as a contemporary utopian alternative to politics. Creatively involved with William Parker, Aruán Ortiz, Larkin Grimm, Mara Rosenbloom, Matt Lavelle, Michael Bisio, Jen Baker, the Commons Choir & more free-spirited fellows & mentors in the music, dance, theater and performance art waters, she is dedicated to substantial creations from solo to cross-disciplinary ensembles, and to expanding the power of music as a healing & transformative act.

Reps is a band because a good thing is worth repeating. That idea put in to practice leads Reps to draw on both the simplest essential materials of rock music and the textural detail of concert minimalism. Karen Waltuch (viola), Dave Ruder (guitar), Sam Morrison (synth), Jeff Tobias (bass), & Max Jaffe (drums) are Reps.
