Matthias Müller – trombone
Petr Vrba – trumpet and electronics
Éric Normand – electric bass and electronics
Triche! brings together three well experienced improvisers naturally blending their unique musical languages. Recorded in Vienna, their reunion is totally improvised, without concept or preparation, and let place to all kind of influences, ranging from minimalist jazz to chamber punk.
Matthias Müller commands his instrument extraordinarily well using all kinds of mutes and circular breathing as well as extended techniques like overtones and overblowing. Éric Normand uses his radical playing on a homemade electric bass, creating electric flux interrupted by the instrumental gesture. Petr Vrba is placing his trumpet in new contexts, blending acoustic and electronic in connexion with the magic of the acoustic experience.
Concentrated on the essence, the trio creates detailed and energic structures with an elaborate sonic vocabulary reaching a radical clarity in transitions of dense to porous episodes and tension to release.
