The Berlin-based improvising wind trio Trigger was formed in 2009 and works on creating a unitary sound of discrete sonic layers. Through the use of multiphonics, circular breathing, and other extended techniques, Trigger forges a music of gradual depth with sudden shifts in texture and mood. The current direction of the trio is a music of long continous masses of sound.

Nils Ostendorf currently writes music for the theater while also being fairly active with various experimental music projects, such as “The Silencers” (with Kim Myhr, Toma Gouband, Benoit Delbecq), “Subsurface” (with Phillip Zoubek, Philippe Lauzier), as well as, an ongoing duo with French saxophonist Michel Doneda.

Matthias Müller performs in experimental and new music contexts frequently in Berlin. Some current projects include “Superimpose” (with Christian Marien), “The Astronomical Unit” (with Clayton Thomas), “RMF“ (with Olaf Rupp, Rudi Fischerlehner), and the 24-improvisers group, “Splitter Orchester.”

Chris Heenan is an active organiser and performer of experimental music, performing in large and small configurations. Some current projects include: “Pivot“ (with Liz Allbee), a duo with percussionist Michael Vorfeld, and “Nordzucker” (with Birgit Ulher, Michael Maierhof, Lars Scherzberg). He is also a member of “Splitter Orchester.”

Bassist/composer Tom Blancarte grew up in Austin, Texas and later attended the University of North Texas in Denton. He was first inspired to play music by listening to bands like Slayer and Black Sabbath, then discovered musicians like Evan Parker and Anthony Braxton later on. He moved to New York City in 2004, where continues to reside with his wife, saxophonist and composer Louise Dam Eckardt Jensen.

Danish saxophonist/composer Louise Dam Eckardt Jensen, based out of New York, has been an active performer in the improvised and experimental scene around the world for the past 9 years. She is best known for her work as a solo performer and performing with her ‚Spaced Out Ensembles,’ featuring her own idiosyncratic and sensitive compositions arranged for winds, brass and hyperactive rhythm section, her duo project with bassist and husband Tom Blancarte called the Home of Easy Credit, an improvising trio with Columbia-based electronic artist Damon Holzborn and Tom Blancarte, and a trio called Herbert Eckardt which plays her own freakish blend of pop tunes and improvisation, co-lead by herself and Italian drummer Luca Marini.
