Wyxz : Odyx
The experimental brainchild of self-taught composer / drummer / guitarist Ben Coniguliaro, Wyxz is a project that plays demanding, through-composed math rock combined with avant-garde progressive rock, sound collage, and free improvisation. A resident of upstate New York, Ben is still relatively unknown to most of the outside world and is already responsible for several cutting edge underground bands at the ripe age of twenty. Featuring his brother Quinn and the virtuosic guitarist Matt Hollenberg (Cleric, Simulacrum, Shardik), Wyxz is a bizzare microprog assault of powerfully complex music that will leave your head spinning!
Matt Stober: Vibraphone
Ben Coniguliaro: Drums Guitar, Bass, Keys, Glockenspiel, Piano
Quinn Coniguliaro: Bass, Guitar, Noise, Percussion
Matt Hollenberg: Guitar
Alex Verbickas: Guitar

Ikue Mori, Phew and YoshimiO are three legends of the Japanese Avant Garde music scene: Ikue was an original member of DNA and is a vital member of the NYC Downtown Scene, Phew founded Aunt Sally in 1978 and has performed in countless folk/rock solo projects and collaborations and YoshimiO is a core member of the Boredoms, Saicobab and OOIOO. Here they come together for their first ever trio project. Recorded at U.F.O. CLUB in Tokyo, the music was edited and mixed during the shelter-in-place months of early 2020. Surprising and powerful, this is a fabulous and essential meeting of three new music superstars.
Ikue Mori: Electronics, Drums
Phew: Voice, Synthesizer
