Trrmà

Profile:
Trrmà is an Italian experimental duo based in Bari, Italy, and founded in July 2015 by Giovanni Todisco (percussion) and Giuseppe Candiano (modular synthesizers). TRRMÀ incorporates several distinct motives in their unconventional sound, such as traditional afrikaans tribal polyrhythms, elements of Mediterranean and classical percussion. The artists also often use stochastic system of composition—a mathematical approach invented by a Greek composer Iannis Xenakis in the early 1950s.

The band's first two albums were both eponymous: a limited-edition Trrmà LP, self-released in May 2016, and TRRMÀ CD which came out in June 2018 on an Italian independent label Auand Records. This second release, mastered by Rashad Becker at D+M Berlin, featured slightly more refined production and polished sound. In February of 2019, to coincide with their first Japan tour, TRRMÀ released a third album, Sàuca. Limited edition CD came in a handmade silkscreened cover with Japanese liner notes.

The band also collaborated with a renowned American avant-garde composer and pianist Charlemagne Palestine. In November 2018, he performed at the 33rd edition of Times Zones Festival in Bari. Times Zones is one of the oldest Italian music festivals, held in Trrmà's hometown annually since 1986. Giovanni and Giuseppe, both Palestine admirers, asked organizers to put them in touch with the eccentric composer. Eventually, they recorded two sessions, fusing together TRRMÀ's stochastic compositions and Palestine's "bombastic" piano and electronics. The limited-edition Sssseegmmeentss Frrooom Baaari LP was released in Oct 2019 on a French label Be Coq.

In May 2020, a Brooklyn-based 577 Records released TRRMÀ's latest album, recorded back in October 2019 at REH Studio in Terlizzi, and again mastered by Becker at D&M.
