The Australian trio Trichotomy returns with 'Known-Unknown' on Challenge Records. In a distinct step into new territory electronic sounds merge with acoustic improvisations, while the complexity of their compositions and group improvisations are balanced by graceful melodies and rich harmonies. Vivid and bright, it is compelling listening.

Inspired by a diverse range of influences from Aphex Twin to Vijay Iyer, and Tortoise to The Bad Plus, Trichotomy's music combines a dense rhythmic focus with the melodic clarity of a Pat Metheny, Brad Mehldau, or the modern European jazz of Tord Gustavsen and Nik Bärtsch.

Compositions often find a fine balance between heavily notated sections and completely free improvisations. 'Known-Unknown' is an apt description of the material the trio brought to the studio to record in June 2016, but more importantly it is a representation of the push and pull within improvised music. The music cannot exist without both, and both must remain in balance.
