Trailer Orpheum Tickets


Part of the SONIC WAVE film series.

Monday, November 20

After a rich career performing live, this film documents the duo’s 2020 show at the empty Basilica Hudson, that occurred at the height of the Covid pandemic. With special appearances by Aaron Dessner, Laurie Anderson, Melissa Auf der Maur, Owen Pallett, Jad Abumrad of Radiolab, Tosin Abasi of Animals As Leaders, Brassland’s Alec Hanley Bemis, author Jonny Dovercourt, and more. A smart film that allows the artists to embrace their gleeful, mesmeric, experimental sounds. (dir. Steven Pierce, U.S, 2023, 77m)

“In the smartly named Buke & Gase, band members Arone Dyer and Aron Sanchez explain their unique approach to music, which finds them playing dynamic oddball compositions on homemade instruments called the buke and the gase. The doc also chronicles Buke & Gase’s concert in an empty Basilica Hudson.” – Stereogum
