Descrizione

Trio 876 is a tight and loose combination of human voice, percussion and string instruments in the field of free improvisation using many different aspects of musical construction, interactive exchange, mutual listening, sound exploration, logic and imagination.
The voice is treated like an odd instrument with the possibilities of throat singing, yodels, falsettos, multiphonics, mouth noises and fast articulation.

He was featured as his own singer’s personality in Peter Strickland’s Berberian Sound Studio awarded movie.
