GAINES transforms otherwise inanimate objects into sonic sculptures, which have been seen/heard on stage and in both group and solo art exhibitions. Live scoring includes: Their original score in Ethan Hawke's Off-Broadway revival of Sam Shepard's A Lie of the Mind, which earned them a Drama Desk Award nomination, and the instrumentation/scoring of Ethan Hawke's Off-Broadway run of Johnathan Marc Sherman's Clive, starring Ethan and Vincent D'Onofrio.
GAINES are Latham and Shelby Gaines: brothers in arms, art, and DNA. Born artists, raised in New Hampshire, their talents have manifested in a range of mediums including music, photography, design, and performance. Their work has traveled along with them to New Zealand, San Francisco, and NYC; always defying simple categorization.
