Chuck Bettis

Chuck Bettis was raised in the fertile HarDCore soil, nourished within Baltimore's enigmatic avant garde gatherings, and currently blossoming in New York's downtown musical tribe. He has performed with John Zorn, Fred Frith, Jamie Saft, and Afrirampo to name a few. Some of the musicians Bettis has recorded and played live with are as follows; Ikue Mori, Nautical Almanac, Audrey Chen, Yellow Swans, Toshio Kajiwara, Mick Barr, etc, plus a long history of punk bands he was in (most notably the experimental punk band Meta-matics as well as the enigmatic All Scars).

Currently he is working on many of his experimental projects such as Brown Wing Overdrive (amorphous group with Derek Morton), Chatterblip (duo with Dafna Naphtali), Mossenek (duo with Mick Barr), Period (quartet with Mike Pride, Charlie Looker, Darius Jones), Hell Hoarse (duo with Brendan Murray), and Silver Process (amorphous group including Joe Merolla and Nonoko Yoshida), in addition to improvising, recording, or composing with an array of musicians from around the world.
