The Mantis is a multimedia group comprising of Dempsey Hamilton on drums and percussion, David Barker on treble string instruments, Doug Kallmeyer on bass string instruments, and Monica Stroik on visual projections. With an improvisational approach to musical arrangements and real time video manipulations, the group has drawn comparisons to Mogwai, Tycho, Explosions in the Sky and Maserati.
