Trepanning Trio with Clarinet Panic Deluxx

LatkovitchIt’s a family affair as Toronto’s Clarinet Panic Deluxx joins Trepanning Trio at Mahall’s.

CPDLXX features the scrappy chamber music of cellist Cory Latkovich, the son if Trepanning Trio’s pianist/ accordionist/ hangist/ glockenspieler/ klangenspieler, Peggy Latkovich.

Hectic dream jams …. Clattering ahead like the score to a never ending horror film, inching towards climax as cello and sax play a game of back & forth only to be driven forward by systematically antagonistic drum patterns and their own instrumental curiosity. Bastard chamber music meets math rock.

Meet Trepanning Trio’s newest member, Jeff Schuler!

jeff-schulerA warm welcome to Trepanning Trio‘s newest member, Jeff Schuler!

Jeff’s first practice violin was a cracker jack box with a ruler taped to it. He still prefers this version.

By day and by night he is also a freelance web developer and consultant, civic tech community organizer, runner, bicyclist, yogi, and capoeirista. He credits listening as his best skill in each of these pursuits.

TREPANNING TRIO with KEEFE JACKSON and BAEKDU DAEKGAN

Trepanning Trio: David Mansbach, Kris Morron, Joel ElveryEXPLORING THE OPTIONS OF SOUND. This seems to be the most suitable way to describe what is going on here: Exploring sound and structure, harmony and disharmony. No wonder that this sounds…bulky, eruptive, at times brutal, at times irritating, seldom calm or soothing. Though, at least it’s never unspectacular, half-hearted or ill-considered.

With KEEFE JACKSON and CHRISTOPH ERB on bass clarinet and tenor saxophone, TOMEKA REID on cello, this is a merger of three free-spirited sound nerds, complementing one another.

It goes without saying that this mighty tempest of sounds may conjure up images of rugged crater landscapes, or of a future crowded with nothing but wretched skeletons, dancing away in a manic frenzy.

The group’s debut album will be released this summer on Veto Records (Switzerland). Fred Lonberg-Holm (cello), who appears on the record, is being replaced for this tour by Jason Roebke (double bass).

As they say: It’s a challenging listening experience. Yet, an experience nonetheless.

BAEKDU DAEKGAN (Bob Drake, synth; Rick Kodramaz, bass; Jay Guy, drums and Alex Henry, sax).
