300 Basses exists since 2010, and has performed until now at Cave 12 Geneva, Les Ateliers Claus Bruxelles, Galleria O’ Milano, Labor Sonor Berlin and other venues in France, Italy and Switzerland. Initially they were playing free improvised music, then they began to organize their sound materials into fixed compositions. In 2012 they released their first CD ‘Sei Ritornelli’, on Potlatch label.
‘Tria Atoma’ goes further than the previous album in the exploration of sound configurations achieved by means of simple but clearly focused actions and gestures: the beatings produced by the long tones of instruments with slight differences in tuning; the unexpected sound texture produced by the superimposition of the sound of the reeds with the one of a bowed cymbal; the slow permutations of a minimal sequence of intervals. A sound world made up of infinitesimal elements, and yet rich of activity, vibration, and nuances. Recorded late July 2014 in Athens (GR) at Sofokleus 33.
