Arone Dyer is a vocalist, musician, composer & founding member of duos Buke and Gase & Mistresses, the producer of Dronechoir (a project which examines social dis/comfort through durational choral performance) and a collaborator with an extensive resume of appearances, most notably on the National’s 2018 #1 Billboard Hit “The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness”, Naama Tsabar’s Composition Series, David Garland’s Verdancy, Adam Schatz’s The Holiday Party, with Deerhoof‘s Greg Saunier for Tzadik Record’s Connie Converse Compilation, and performance collaborations with poet Mahogany L Brown, Berlin-based Stargaze & Cantus Domus, among many others. She holds several degrees in Life Experience but tragically the transcripts were destroyed in a fire so there’s no proof.
