San Francisco-based trio comprising Tania Chen, Gino Robair, Tom Djll who create electro-acoustic music : fully improvised but reflecting their shared interest in highly contrasting features: textures and dynamics; density and silence.
I’m really excited about this group and this recording. The combination of the pure acoustic piano (deliberately and articulately played by Chen on a beautiful instrument), conjoined with the complex sonorities of Djll’s and Robair’s deep toolkits is a balm to the ears. The recording is stunning, and the improvising spontaneous, yet carefully crafted.
