Compositions and improvisations for guitar, effects + loops. A variety of rhythmically and texturally focused sounds. Touring this format regularly throughout the United States.
Post-rock / math-rock hybrid with Eric Castillo on drums/laptop & Ben Backus on bass/keys. Much of the music is composed collaboratively. Formed in 2009, on hiatus at the moment. For more: http://www.facebook.com/hannibalmontana
<<<lucas brode trio>>>
Brand new and very exciting, cosmic noise-jazz, pulsating, dichotomous trio with the simultaneously destructive-constructive rhythm section of electric bassist Johnny DeBlase (Many Arms, Zevious, Sabbath Assembly) and drummer Kevin Shea (Talibam!, Mostly Other People Do the Killing, Storm & Stress). Performing the loosest of my compositional material with plenty of room for improvisation and denying the existence of time.
<<<lucas brode’s spying>>>
Performing my compositions (2010-present) from the outer realm. Vaguely jazz, with a focus on improvisation & varying textures. Also featuring New York City area groove-focused drummer, Sammy Wags. Toured throughout the Northeast and Midwest from 2015-2017, debut album coming soon.
