Trichotomy collaborate with master percussionist Nozomi Omote on a new work written by Trichotomy drummer John Parker for the trio + Vibraphone and Marimba.

Composer John Parker says:
In photography, the term Depth of Field relates to the “the distance between the nearest and the farthest objects that are in acceptably sharp focus in an image”. I’ve been interested in this concept for some time and how it could translate into music through the use of polytonal and polyrhythmic manipulation. In the group Trichotomy we often experiment with these concepts in real time via improvisation and extended sections which provide scope for this to occur.
Composers such as Prokofiev and Stravinsky have been key influences on my writing and how they have used polytonality and rhythm
to great effect. I wanted to use this opportunity to extend my harmonic
and rhythmic palette.
