Sunday 8 May
Ian Hanger Recital Hall

One of Australia’s most inventive contemporary ensembles and Ensemble in Residence at the QLD Conservatorium will present a program of new works from Trichotomy set to feature on their upcoming 5th album plus songs reimagined for the trio + vocalist Kristin Berardi.
Performers: Sean Foran – piano, John Parker – drums/percussion, Sam Vincent – double bass Kristin Berardi – vocals

So much more than a traditional jazz trio, this group expands the capacities of the classic piano/bass/drums combination by skillfully blending dense, exciting improvisations and delicate atmospherics, conjuring up sounds of modern jazz, ambient music, avant-garde rock, free improvisation and contemporary classical music. Wonderfully unpredictable & absorbing, dramatic & always distinctive.

Formed in 1999 while studying at the Queensland Conservatorium, 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 Sam Vincent’s visceral touch on the double bass. Originally known as‘Misinterprotato’, they forged a clear place amongst the contemporary music landscape in Australia.
