Alpha Trianguli 'Entering Zero Gravity'

December 2023

Opening up new worlds musically, while working to preserve a world.

Inspired by the beauty and vastness of the universe, the band Alpha Trianguli begins their journey into the infinity of sound worlds.

Motivated by the curiosity of the four musicians to let themselves fall and be carried away, the band sometimes sounds earthy and energetically bubbling - like approaching a planet - sometimes calm, floating, amazed.

The interaction of the Vienna-based quartet gives the impression that this is itself a micro-cosmos:

The rhythms of the drums circulate around the gravitational field of the double bass, its attractive and driving force, and ensure pulse and periodicity.

The magical, expansive sound of the vibraphone fills the spaces created by the interaction and sparkles like the sublime firmament.

From there, the earthly, warm tone of the trombone resounds like a voice, into space, like a wake-up call to the audience.

Because while the goals of the quartet's journey are unknown, the necessary direction of our everyday work has long been known. (press release)
