keyboards / trumpet / electronics / double bass / percussion
Melbourne-based improv trio Impermanence traverse form and genre. The ancient and the modern, tradition and invention coalesce through the group's unique instrumentation: mixed Indonesian gamelan + piano (Bianca Gannon), double bass (Josh Holt), trumpet + live electronics (Elliott Hughes).
Neo-classical and jazz references with ritualistic rhythms and a new music edge flow freely in their seemingly through-composed long-form free improvisations. Ethereal lyricism layered with pulsating Balinese timbres, orchestral textures and extended harmonies resonate in an expansive timelessness. This unprecedented synthesis is seamlessly unified by this trio who are all composers in their own right.
