Artist Biographies:

"Giovanni Todisco: Graduated in "Classical Percussions" at the "Nino Rota" Conservatory of Monopoli, current drummer in "The Confraternity of Purgatory"; "Trrmà".

Predominantly immersed in experimentation and instrumental music, Giovanni finds the idea of ​​developing a musical idea able to merge technical / didactic elements with the non-undervaluable strength of music: imagination.

What is important is to balance the hours purely dedicated to the study of the instrument, with the hours that few dedicate to listening to the music that surrounds us."

Previously played Squidco store copy, used for cataloging and samples, in excellent condition.

"Based in the South of Italy, Trrmà is comprised of Giovanni Todisco on drums and percussions and Giuseppe Candiano on modular synthesizers. The band has toured Japan and Europe, playing many venues and festivals.

Trrmà find inspiration in artists like Sun Ra but also from the more structured aspects of Iannis Xenakis' repertoire. The resulting sound is complex, with parallels being drawn to the likes of Flying Lotus. Featuring tribal polyrhythm percussion with a focus on sci-fi and dystopic feelings, Trrmà take experimental jazz and elevate it, twisting and distorting the sound until the music 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 manage to strike a delicate balance between aspects of archaic and ancient primitive dance and strict mathematical processes.

Speaking of the overall album, Trrmà tell us: "The Earth's Relief is 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."-577 Records

"Trrmà is a project of Giovanni Todisco (Percussion) and Giuseppe Candiano (Synth). Trrmà was born in July 2015. Started to experiment a new dimension, mixing "classic" afrikaans and symphonic percussion with modular synthesis. Tribal polyrithm's percussion reminds archaic and ancient primitive dance combined to scifi and distopic feelings coming out from synthetizers."-Trrmà
