Archer Spade is the new music collaboration between composer/performers Daniel Blacksberg and Nick Millevoi that seeks to broaden the repertoire and inspire new sonic possibilities for their unlikely instrumentation of trombone and electric guitar. Together, Blacksberg and Millevoi bring unique and versatile vocabularies to contemporary classical music as well as extensive individual experiences that span experimental music, jazz, punk rock, and Jewish music. The duo’s music, formed from over a decade of playing together, propels beyond the boundaries of the classical tradition into a singular body of work that spans the unique breadth of its members
personal vocabularies.

Archer Spade has worked with composers Gene Coleman, David Soldier, John DeBlase, and is currently collaborating with Roscoe Mitchell on a trio composition with saxophonist Drew Cecatto, commissioned by Thomas
Buckner. The members of Archer Spade work with Electric Simcha, The Other Europeans, Many Arms, and Make A Rising.
