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 Mossenek (duo with Mick Barr), Brown Wing Overdrive (electro-acoustic trio with Mikey IQ Jones & Derek Morton), Mudang Rouge (quartet with Jerry Lim, Evan Rapport, Josh Blair), Period (trio with Mike Pride, Charlie Looker), Pretty Clicks (duo with Berangere Maximin) and Chatterblip (duo with Dafna Naphtali), in addition to improvising, recording, or composing with an array of musicians from around the world.
