Troikastra

In Aug. 2005, Percussionist/Composer Curtis Glatter assembled a new electronics-based ensemble combining the sounds of hybrid musical influences of ambient electronics and phonography and further mixing it with raw cross-cultural percussion. Troikastra featuring Marcos Fernandes, Glatter, Nathan Hubbard and DJ Tenshun emerged from influences including John Cage, Zorn's Cobra, Ground Zero, the Voordoms and Brian Eno as well as witnessing the efforts of various San Diego ensembles including Donkey, Stereophonic, Titicacaman, Quibble, Trio Macghreb and Tenshun. Once again, just as with Obscuricon, the members of Troikastra seek to explore new territory by blurring the lines of musical genres with an extensively wide range of influences by cross-fertilizing the genres of classical, avant garde, trip-hop and scratch-dub . The music of Troikastra includes a distinct mixture of phonographic/electro-acoustic serenity as well as dense aural sound-scapes utilizing electronic frame, found sounds, samples and a hybrid trap kit played by Glatter.
