Ryat is an ever evolving, genre bending, live looping and live sampling experiment combining avant indie influences, political underlining text, with pop-retro sarcasm. Created by the multi-instrumentalist/producer/singer Christina Ryat, the project has morphed into a duo, with the Nels Cline-esque guitarist and composer Tim Conley and live with drummer Chris Wood.





History. RYAT was established in 2004, by Christina. She started performing as a solo artist under the name. Christina has performed with Skerik; Mike Dillon; Billy Martin; DJ Logic; and Calvin Weston, opened for the Wailers, and recorded with King Britt; Taylor McFerrin; and the Disco Biscuits.

In 2006, Christina and Conley met forming the band Kilo with Tony Catastrophe, Jason Fraticelli and Dion Paci. Kilo later changed their name to As Human and released their debut album "Kilo" in 2008. In the band, Christina performed under the name RYAT. As Human performed with Mark Guiliana; Bernie Worrell; Taylor Mcferrin; and opened for Ursula Rucker, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey and Marco Benevento.

Conley has performed under the name RYAT with Mike Watt; Grimace Federation; Jneiro Jarel; Phillybloco; and recorded with DJ Static(illvibe collective); Shutters; Grimace Federation and his own group Ocean Exposition.

November 23, 2009, Street Noise Okestra was released under the name RYAT by Christina. At this time, Conley was not an official member of the band, even though he is on the record as additional composer and performer.

Later in 2009, RYAT became a duo with both Christina and Conley. As a duo, they recorded with King Britt, performed with Grimace Federation while opening for the Flaming Lips and RJD2, and opened for Mew and Marco Benevento.
