Biography

Ghost Trio is a trio from Helsinki, Finland.

Biography from MySpace:

I believe it was (it must have been) in the Fall of 2004, when Giuse and Sampo made the acquaintance of Janne, the soon-to-be drummer of Ghost Trio. The group was given its name by Giuse, who broke away from the warmth and security of the collective for an extended solitary walk in search of a suitable combination of letters that their joint venture might go by. Nothing perpetrated by his own feeble imagination struck him as anything approaching appropriate, and it was already getting late and he was hungry and cold. … So he did what he always does when what he does doesn’t do it: Hmm… This is the part that gives me the most trouble. What is it, really, that he manages then? Gives in? Gives way to… uninvention? Well, however anything ever gets done (it amazes me!) it was by way of stealing the title of a certain piece of music (following the lead of a certain playwright) that the good old piece of nomenclature was resuscitated and brought to connote the three of them! That’s it. The end of (the beginning of the) story!

Ghost Trio played their first show consisting of arrangements of a few of Giuse’s solo numbers as an acoustic act at Samettiklubi, Helsinki (you shouldn’t have missed that one, but you did!). In late January 2005 the Trio whiled away a few days at Harju Studios and produced their first record that featured the first three songs they had put together jointly. From these sessions featured here are two songs, ‘Nocturne’, a serene piece of Satiean subtlety and charm, and ‘Dare go on’, a miniature epic in the once popular Virgilian vein.

    Sounds very good, too bad it would cost me too much money to get the EP. Hopefully it will get to Portugal some day (hint hint) :P
