Time and Texture is a collaborative prodction that is a result of a musical exploration between the three members of Trioture and their individual musical journeys. The work draws on each members diverse musical backgrounds including the inclusion of music from Malawi, Jazz and Electro-Acoustic Music.
Time is one of the few necessities of music. It exists in all music in different manifestations. Time in music can sometimes take the shape with pulse, or be presented in a way to give a sense of suspension of time. Either way, music must exist in time for sound to propagate. Trioture’s exploration of time delves into different approaches of perception of time including moments of pulse, suspension of time and juxtaposition between these rhythmic concepts.
Texture in music refers to layers and their interactions. As a trio of eclectic musicians, Trioture instrumentation of trombone, percussion with electronics and strombophone allows for a diverse set of possibilities to create textures that can verge on the tactile. The changing shapes of sounds and their process of time creates a sense of drama of Time and Texture to create serenity, tension and excitement.
