Mons Venera
...experimental, avant-garde, improvisational, space-rock, free-jazz, pseudo-ethnic, modern, classical, soundtrack, progressive, film-score, acoustic, electric, electronic, beautiful, ugly, soft, loud, dissonant, textural, noisy, good, and awful are all descriptions...

Mons Venera formed in Charlotte in 2000 as an offshoot of the now-defunct free-improv    ensemble Mao Tao Tec. The original lineup was Joe, Zack and Mike; soon drummer Brent Mauch (who had previously played with Joe in Black Plastic) was added, and then Scott (also from Mao Tao Tec). They wrote a few songs, some of which survive in the present era, and played a handful of shows (still mostly improvised). Eventually Brent had to leave, due to other obligations (family, work, etc.). They played drummerless for a few months, exploring both acoustic and electronic arrangements, until finding Artie in mid-2002. Re-energized, they wrote several new pieces (and reworked some old ones), made their first decent studio recordings, and are now prepared to take over the world. Resistance is futile...
