A spectacular, dark, brilliant CD-length piece from this virtuosic German group. Heavy interactive computer and signal processed sound makes for an intense experience.

TRIONYS combines gestural instrumental actions and live electronics. Their first project, vector alpha, is a dramatic, hour-long work comprised of thirteen parts. Each part is defined by specific sound regions, playing actions, and interactions among the musicians. Besides the exactly-determined parts, there is room for spontaneous and exhilarating improvisation.

Rainer Bürck, Keyboards & Electronics
Günter Marx, Violin & Electronics
Martin Bürck, Gongs, Percussion & Electronics

"…high levels of performance mastery… the treatment of sound materials … was sophisticated and effective.”
