END TIMES TRIO is a jazz/freejazz ensemble that has been performing sound paintings in Springfield, IL since 2006. The group enters its eight year of performance at The Pharmacy, where it will create two sets of sound sculpture for anyone interested in uneasy listening and provocation.
END TIMES TRIO plays within and beyond the jazz idiom, incorporating bop and post-bop lines into pieces that organically expand into explosive freejazz and the outer regions of noise. Improvisation is the primary, overarching principle of the group’s music. However, the trio blurs the line between composition and improvisation, playing graphic scores, film-strip and film-guided pieces, and constructing other forms of innovative “sheet music.” Occasionally, standard notation and tonal centers are used to direct collective improvisations.
