Trigger is an acoustic wind instrument trio working in the context of experimental music. Together they aim for the creation and shaping of a homogenous overall sound. The three instruments function as generators of noise and sound and blend together in a complex sound mass, which is permanently moving, changing and renewed.
By using advanced playing techniques such as circular breathing, multiphonics and a vast palette of air sounds the instruments are removed from their traditional context and resemble electro acoustic sound sources, which interact by imitating and contrasting with the specifically use of timbre, density and dynamic. The players react to each other immediately, allowing fast changing sound constellations with a compositional awareness for structure and duration.
