Biography

Gorge Trio is that worrisome self-organizing future intelligence that scifi blockbusters caution us about. Meticulously constructed over a three-year period, Open Mouth, O Wisp is Gorge Trio’s magnum opus - like a Tetsuo polymorph fun party, absent the agony and booked on the ecstatic. Dense brambles of sound, electrifying liquidity shooting thru arterial sluices of baroque cognition. A late North American power combo sound in the tradition of Mark Ribot’s Shrek work and US Maple’s postcool canker, with a palette as effectual and varied as the Sun City Girls. It may have few peers, but it’s too junked up with the magneto swarm to be lonely. Remember the mid-90’s Czech-Canadian mining pub trio Fat? This is better!

It’s not easy music, but it’s also not difficult to like. It fulfills the ears you didn’t know you had, shaking a brainstem in its ozone with an ether fiddle. Every note seems compressed to the last degree and scratchy pitches burst forth like mercury through steel wool, scattering about a Donald Judd surface of maximum refraction. It’s darned near impossible.

Did you just hear Burmese piano, a Patagonia stomp, Sardinian flutes? How about a Mahavishnu Arkestra in a tin can trio? Well, it’s probably not what you think. Guitar, electronics, drums. That’s right. What more do you need to reinvent the squeal? Just genius, the kind that doesn’t punish you too much and pretend to sell you real estate.
