About us

It’s the fourth year since Triplicity started their music journey, continuously delving deeper into their sonic adventures, day by day. It’s really difficult to put a label on the music of Triplicity; however, Panos, George and Panagiotis devised their own term for that: future fusion – and a fusion (of many, many things) it is! This music is equally inspired by the jazz spirit of the 60s, the attitude of prog-rock, electronica’s psychedelic excursions, chamber music ethos and world music ancient wisdom. This melting pot mindset is ever-present from day one (the trio actually started as the rhythm section of a friend’s saxophonist quartet and quickly realized that it has a life of its own) and continues to be at the core of the aesthetic directions of Triplicity.

Triplicity operate in a leader-less mode, a creative process that’s getting rare these days, forming a dedicated group of people contributing according to their capacities and desire. With mutual respect for the taste of each member and a democratic stance towards decision making, Triplicity always find a common ground, creating their unique sonic blend.

At the dawn of 2016, after intense gigging and rehearsing, Triplicity released their audiovisual debut Birth of the Sun, a collection of compositions that, despite featuring a lot of through-composed material, focus on the energy and group playing, bringing on the table influences from the modern jazz and rock world and from the west African and south Indian music traditions. Triplicity enlisted three world class musicians to complete their musical vision: Chad Lefkowitz-Brown on tenor sax, Tammy Scheffer on vocals and Pete Lockett on percussion. Drummer Panos Vassilopoulos remembers: “Those sessions were full of excitement where anything could happen; we were recording live in the studio while filming the whole process at the same time. Scary in a way but lot’s of fun!”. Since the release of Birth of the Sun, Triplicity continued to experiment on stage and in the studio with various guest musicians and producers including ney master Harris Lambrakis, and legendary Greek drummer and producer George Trandalidis.

The presence of technology and electronic gear is clearly evident during the performances of Triplicity. “Using the options that technology has to offer, while maintaining the aesthetics of the traditions that we respect and serve as musicians, is among the cornerstones of Triplicity’s musical vision. This way, we manage to sound fresh and sound full” says guitarist George Stavroulakis. The goal of this extensive use of technology is to augment the sonic abilities of the trio to those of a quartet – or even a quintet sometimes while sharing responsibilities in the sound spectrum. Melodies may be heard from the bass guitar, harmonies and chords may be triggered from a drum pad while the low end may be covered by the electric guitar. Possibilities are limitless: one for all, all for one!

Always eager to explore new sounds and different compositional and improvisational tools harnessing both individual and team work, Triplicity meticulously prepare new material for their second release. Bassist Panagiotis Bourazanis thinks of the compositional process this way: “Our ultimate goal is to, hopefully, create something profound and detailed but no matter what, accessible and contemporary at the same time. We are constantly working and provide the time necessary for our sonic palette and musical language to mature, so we are striving to take our time in an era full of momentary flashes. It’s a trial and error thing and we treat it with respect”.

Triplicity are always willing to take chances so you never know what to expect from them in every show, video or audio release – except maybe one thing: honest and adventurous music. The future seems exciting, stay tuned!
