Brisbane based piano trio Trichotomy have crafted an international reputation as a group that combines a dense rhythmic focus with a refined melodic clarity. Blending influences across modern jazz, contemporary classical and electronic music this group, over their 20-year career, have collaborated with jazz artists, classical chamber groups, video artists, string quartets, dance companies and symphony orchestras, creating music that continues to push contemporary jazz into new areas.
They have toured around the world to the UK, Europe, Japan, China, Canada, South America and throughout Australia, and with 6 albums released, an extensive catalogue of work. In 2013 the group was a finalist in the APRA Art Music Award for Excellence in Jazz (Australia) and have been previous winners of the QLD Music Award for Jazz and finalists for the Australian AIR and BELL awards for contemporary jazz album of the year. Their recent album “KNOWN-UNKNOWN” (2017) features electronic sounds merging with their acoustic improvisations, while the complexity of their compositions and group improvisations are balanced by graceful melodies and rich harmonies. This bold work puts them firmly forward as a group with vision, depth and intensity. In 2019 they released a new album “Between the Lines”, a collaboration with alt-country songwriter Danny Widdicombe.
