Gray (performance artist Michael Holman, Nick Taylor, and more)

April 29th, 1979, Holman and Basquiat created the revolutionary sound/music/noise group, Gray. Gray’s music can be heard on film soundtracks, such as: Basquiat, The Radiant Child, Downtown 81, Blank City and Downtown Calling. Today, original Gray member Nick Taylor and Holman make up the band. Other members of Gray have included, Vincent Gallo, Justin Thyme (aka Wayne Clifford), and Shannon Dawson.

Since re-uniting in 2010, Gray has performed live at the New Museum (New York City, July, 2011), Corcoran Gallery of Art (Washington, D.C., March, 2012) and the Parrish Museum (Watermill, November, 2012).

D.O.Z. (Dragons of Zynth)

“D.O.Z.”, also known as Dragons of Zynth, is an American band from New York, NY. The band is fronted by twins, Aku and Akwetey Orraca-Tetteh, alongside Chicago native Jason B. Lucas aka ‘Bizza’ on drums.

Trained classically since the age of 5, Aku and his twin began playing together years after having studied music theory and performance with saxophonist/flutist Yusef Lateef. Future travels to Ghana and South America gave way to new paths in their musical direction.

Born in New York and raised in Cleveland, OH, the twins returned to NY to unearth new explorations in sound. Engaging Lateef’s “auto-physio-psychic” theory of composition, the OT’s set out to carve new sounds out of rhythms and melodies at once familiar and far out. As early demos took form, the band’s live shows caught the attention of TV on the Radio and Yeah Yeah Yeahs producer David Andrew Sitek. The producer lent his talents to their debut, 2007’s critically acclaimed album Coronation Thieves. The album features guest appearances by TV on the Radio, Antibalas, and Celebration.

Following the recording and release of Coronation Thieves, the band has garnered international acclaim sharing stages with Television, The Roots, Modest Mouse, Saul Williams and Grizzly Bear.

Currently in studio, D.O.Z. are working on new music with trip hop pioneers Massive Attack and mixing their new, yet to be named, full-length album with recording engineer Russell Elevado (D’Angelo, Erykah Badu).

Kyp Malone (TV on the Radio)

As singer and guitarist for celebrated band TV on the Radio, Malone proved himself both a captivating and delightfully unpredictable musical force. On Rain Machine, he shows himself a singer and a lyricist of startling talents. Malone recently described Rain Machine as “a nearly full spectrum of frequencies audible to the human ear, a reflection of a variety of emotions and situations real and imagined – some rhythm some rhyme.”

Madame Gandhi (MIA)

Kiran Gandhi is a Los Angeles-based musician and music industry consultant with an MBA from Harvard. She has toured professionally drumming for M.I.A and Thievery Corporation and currently produces electronic music under her own project called Madame Gandhi. She is perhaps most well-known for running the London Marathon bleeding-freely to combat period stigma around the world, and travels often to speak about gender equality. (read full bio here)
