Divide and Dissolve’s Takiaya Reed (saxophone, guitar, live effects/ (Black & Tsalagi [Cherokee]) creates instrumental music that is both heavy and beautiful, classically influenced yet thrillingly contemporary,  

Powerfully expressive and communicative, their music has the ability to speak without words, and utilises frequencies to interact with the naturally occurring resonance. Mirroring the brash, bone-crushing potency of their dynamic Drone music, the formidable Takiaya Reed and accompanying percussionist carry their fight and ancestors fight forward each and every day, using the power of their performances to draw attention to the ongoing battle against systemic oppression. 



“face-toasting stuff, evocative of standing that bit too close to a bonfire to marvel at its fiery dynamics.”
