The music of this improvising trio makes for a fierce amalgam of creative jazz and avant-metal juxtaposed with moments of abstraction and delicate beauty.
Hear these three unique and fearless voices combine in a performance of uninhibited spontaneous creation. Jazz, metal, and electronica fans will all jump at this. Not to be missed!

LENTICLOUDS (Álvaro Domene, Ches Smith, and Briggan Krauss) at Muchmore’s, Brooklyn. By Peter Gannushkin /

Improvising group in which Briggan Krauss and I are the core, and we expand to trio with a rotating drummer. So far, we have been joined by the immense talents of Andrew Drury, Lukas Koenig, Ches Smith, and Mike Pride.




“Desvelo, the latest project of Spanish guitarist/composer Álvaro Domene, is an explosive, genre-defying quartet featuring New York’s heavy hitters Briggan Krauss (alto sax), Josh Sinton (baritone sax/bass clarinet), and Mike Pride (drums). Through this fascinating ensemble, Desvelo presents an evolutionary progression in Domene’s compositional technique, boldly unifying elements of avant-garde jazz and 20th-century classical music with experimental metal.”


Krauss · Domene

“Alto sax demon Briggan Krauss (H-Alpha, Sex Mob, Bill Frisell) has been an integral part of the New York City’s musical fabric for over 20 years. Krauss connects the extreme edges of saxophone technique with the unexplored tonal possibilities of the instrument. He has recently released his first solo recording, “Art of the Saxophone Vol. 1: The Tunnel” in which he documents his uniquely innovative approach to improvisation and the saxophone.

Having recently arrived in New York City, Spanish guitarist/composer Álvaro Domene is quickly making a name for himself on the creative music scene. His band ‘Desvelo’ (w Briggan Krauss, Josh Sinton, and Mike Pride) is now a regular player on the city’s gigging circuit, showcasing Domene’s compositional brilliance and exceptional playing.

Hear these two unique voices combine in a performance of uninhibited improvisation. Recent duo performances by the pair have received high acclaim. Not to be missed.”

We just recorded out first CD, “Live at The Firehouse Space” and it’s out on Iluso Records. Jeremiah Cymerman took care of the recording, mixing, and mastering.

Chris Packham’s AND THERE YOU ARE

Duo of British (but Brooklyn based) drummer and composer Chris Packham and guitarist Álvaro Domene. Math rock meets contemporary jazz, folk, and experimentalism.



· Beneath The Earth There Are Machines ·

Duo project with my friend, guitar and sound wizard, Dane Johnson. Ambient? Noise? Drone? Free Improvisation? Glitch? We play electric guitars, conventional, seven string, prepared, microtonal, bass, more microtonal, and lots, and I mean, LOTS of pedals.

Grab a good pair of headphones, lie down, and listen to this recording we made in June 2018:
