3ofmillions is a unique jazz project in which three leading young Sydney musicians extend sounds with electronics and experimentalism. Their recent CD release, Immediate received 4 Stars from Sydney Morning Herald. Rising from the embers of eclectic musical experiences including Triosk, Trio Apoplectic, the Splinter Orchestra, Pivot, Pure Evil Trio, and Holly Throsby Band. These influences are all called upon to improvise music that can, and does, go anywhere. Brave turns, textural layering and a strong sense of united phrasing direct the music from intimate storytelling to epic intensity. In 3ofmillions, the piano trio format is redefined with a new ultra-sonic modern twist.
ROIL features pianist Chris Abrahams (one of the most creative and emotive voices in Australian music, widely known for his work with ground breaking trio – The Necks), in collaboration with Mike Majkowski on bass and James Waples on drums.
For the past two years, they have been developing a unique approach to the piano trio format through improvisation, resulting in a weaving of individual textures, at times quite fragmented, and at other times coming together to form group phrases (sometimes for a split second), before moving on again.
