- Shishapangma Trrmà 1:50
Trrmà has just released his new single titled ‘Shishapangma’. Delving into the realms of Avante-Garde, deep electronica, house, and sleek originality, Trrmà gives a hardwired computerized clash of sonic bliss and carnal hyper-beat capable of shaking the club and exciting the experimental urges in all of us.
Based in the South of Italy, Trrmà is comprised of Giovanni Todisco on drums and percussions and Giuseppe Candiano on modular synthesizers. Giovanni Todisco, a teacher of drums and percussion in several music schools, received his own formal training when he graduated from Monopoli Conservatory in “Classical Percussions”. Giuseppe Candiano studied jazz guitar and trumpet before he went on to teach himself the synthesizer with a focus on electronic music.
Trrmà finds inspiration in the beginnings of Afrofuturism with SUN RA taking center stage while the more structured aspects of IANNIS XENAKIS providing support. The resulting sound is complex, with parallels being drawn to the likes of Clap! Clap! and Flying Lotus, while the jazzy aspects of Portico Quartet shine through.
Featuring tribal polyrhythm percussion with a focus on sci-fi and dystopic feelings, Trrmà takes experimental jazz and elevate it, twisting and distorting the sound until the Afrofuturism shines through. Carried by scattershot snare rim beats with influences of beat culture such as afrobeat and footwork, the resulting dense percussive is noteworthy. Having been known to work with the stochastic system of composition, Trrmà manages to strike a delicate balance between aspects of archaic and ancient primitive dance and strict mathematical processes.
Speaking of the overall album, Trrmà tells us “The Earth’s reliefs” are dedicated to unreachable peaks, at the same time it represents the desire to challenge the highest goals, a metaphor for the research behind our music with which we always try to surprise ourselves.”
