Truly captivating for a variety of audiences, TRICHOTOMY skillfully blend dense, exciting improvisations and delicate atmospherics, conjuring up sounds of modern jazz, ambient music, avant garde rock, free improvisation and contemporary classical music.
Formed in 1999 while studying at the Queensland Conservatorium, and performing under the name Misinterprotato in Australia, the group's sound is driven by award winning pianist Sean Foran, teamed with John Parker's expansive dynamic and timbral range on percussion and Patrick Marchisella's visceral touch on the double bass.
Trichotomy have performed around Australia at the Wangaratta Jazz festival, Woodford Folk Festival and Melbourne International jazz Festival, Brisbane Festival, Valley Jazz Festival, and the Apollo Bay Festival, among others. Internationally the trio have also appeared at the Calgary International Jazz Festival Canada, the Kutchan Jazz Festival Japan, World Expo Japan, and toured Japan several times. In 2009 they were invited to showcase at the prestigious MIDEM music conference in Cannes, France.
Their strength is a remarkable ability to appeal to jazz fans and the more non-jazz audiences, giving them the ability to fit an array of venues and festivals. They do this without compromising on style, and intensity in the music.
Inspiring improvisations, intuitive interaction, music does not often draw in its listeners so deeply. Watch our this antipodean three piece as they take the UK jazz scene by storm.
