Triosk are an Australian improvising trio featuring
Adrian Klumpes (piano/keyboards), Laurence Pike (drums) and Ben Waples (double bass).
They surfaced with
1 + 3 + 1 (Scape, 2003), a collaboration with
Berlin's digital deconstructionist Jan "Farben" Jelinek.
Their first major recording was Moment Returns (Leaf, 2004),
an album that diluted jazz music into a maze of postprocessing techniques.
The very first track, The Streets Are Empty, set the stage for the
radical experiments of the album: a volley of colliding sharp tones over a bed
of distorted drones.
The loose discrete jamming Chronosynclastic Infundibula is actually
unusual. Triosk's music is all but random improvisation.
Strict and geometric structure emerges in Love Chariot, with its repetition of pounding rhythm and wavering organ phrases and sprinkled piano notes. Another cyclical composition is the warped organ sonata Tomorrow Today, perhaps the most paranoid of the batch.
The longes track, I Am A Beautiful And Unique Snowflake,
ebbs and flows like a metronom, ultimately a
sequence of percussive patterns.
Triosk's post-jazz music is music of great sophistication and power, although
hardly grounded in the tradition of jazz at all.
