Tribal Trauma blends recent electronic styles with modern guitar motifs and classic cello melodies, enhanced with a multi-media visual production. TrimTab is the brainchild of guitarist Jason Goessl, whose study of the work of R. Buckminster Fuller informs his approach to musical form and meter. He takes the idea of the dymaxion house, car, map, and expresses it in musical form by melding classical, jazz, eastern, African, and rock concepts to a style all his own. The current line-up features Phil Cali on bass and Brian Oppel on drums.
Each month, Nonsequitur and a community of like-minded organizations and artists present ten concerts of adventurous and experimental music in the gorgeous Chapel Performance Space at the Good Shepherd Center (which sits on the traditional homelands of the Duwamish people): contemporary/post-classical composition, free improvisation and the outer limits of jazz, electronic/electroacoustic music, new instruments, phonography, sound art, and other innovative musics. Watch a video clip about us on the Seattle Channel.
