KNEST

 

KNEST is the lovechild of Thor Harris (Shearwater/Swans), Randall Holt  (Dead.Cat.Cello/Reverend Glasseye), and Jonathan Horne (Plutonium Farmers/Ichi Ni San Shi). Drawing on their varied backgrounds, this trio of multi-instrumentalists approaches music from an improv-based series of landscapes and motifs that develop organically. The instrumentation is just as interesting as their stage presence – including hammered dulcimer, xylophone, KAOScillator, guitar, saxophone(s), cello, upright bass, trumpet, clarinet, and flute.  Sounds of experimental jazz, post-rock, noise, and classical can be expected from these gentlemen. KNEST currently resides in Austin, TX.
