trio.Schmetterling

Based upon a jam session in 2007, influenced by all currents of modern music, avant-garde and jazz, the trio consisting of Jan Roth, Keisuke Matsuno and Alexander Binder plays innovative instrumental music which, in spite of the progressive fragments, tend to non-conformism. Technically whole, evenly played songs that tell compelling stories without words. Tracks that have found their own language, music that sounds like flying.

Elegantly played melody lines are confronted by sudden rhythmic patterns.
