Unruly Neighbors is an improvisational duo based in Brooklyn, NY composed of guitarist Ben Tyree and drummer/percussionist Sameer Gupta. In 2020, the duo heard the increasingly urgent call for co-creating new visions for what the world could look like post-pandemic. They answered with their joint debut recording project, Unruly Neighbors (Sonic Architectures) – a largely improvisational sculpture of electric and acoustic sound that is, at once, emotive, gritty, and transcendent. Experience their eclectic and supernatural improv duets on their latest release, Catalytic. The album weaves a contrast of Tyree’s searching, dark and, at times, piercing tone with the tickling, trance-inducing drive of Gupta’s hybrid tabla/drum kit, creating dream-like washes of sound that play out to the many tensions and uncertainties of these times. Expect the unexpected.
