About the Concert

Inspired by the beauty and vastness of the universe, the band Alpha Trianguli begins their journey into the infinity of sound worlds. Driven by the curiosity of the four musicians to let themselves fall and be carried away, the band sometimes sounds earthy and energetic, sometimes calm and floating. The interaction of the Vienna-based quartet gives the impression that this is itself a micro-cosmos: the rhythms of the drums circulate around the gravitational field of the double bass which ensures pulse and periodicity. The magical, expansive sound of the vibraphone fills the spaces created and sparkles like the sublime firmament. From there, the earthly, warm sound of the trombone resounds like a voice into space.

With their debut album, Entering Zero Gravity, Alpha Trianguli takes their audience away from the turbulent everyday life for a few moments into a space of weightlessness, calm and focused attention.
