Trilateral Commission is a new trio of world class improvisors, from the 3 loci of the original ‘commission'. Each brings a personal musical language to the mix, immediately identifiable to those who know their work. These are players of wide experience in many types of music, from jazz to pop, noise to music for meditation. Ned Rothenberg and Kazuhisa Uchihashi have been musical partners in crime for over 30 years, starting with Rothenberg as a guest with Altered States, to the cooperative trio RUB and creating music for the Tuvan chanteuse Sainkho. Sartorius and Rothenberg have been working in trio with the brilliant Swiss pianist Sylvie Courvoisier. Trilateral Commission marks the first time the 3 will make music together and promises to be a powerful combination.
Composer/Performer Ned Rothenberg has been internationally acclaimed for both his solo and ensemble music, presented for the past 40 years on 5 continents. He performs primarily on alto saxophone, clarinet, bass clarinet, and shakuhachi. His solo work utilizes an expanded palette of sonic language, creating a personal idiom all its own. He has collaborated with Evan Parker, Marc Ribot, Ikue Mori, Masahiko Sato, Steve Nieve, Sylvie Courvoisier and John Zorn. "Ned Rothenberg is absolutely phenomenal.. (He has) opened up new and unheard expressive possibilities for wind instruments." Tagespiegel

Drummer, percussionist and artist Julian Sartorius forms sounds into previously unseen shapes. His precise and multi-layered rhythmical patterns are keen excursions into the hidden tones of found objects and prepared instruments, bridging the gap between organic timbres and the vocabulary of (experimental) electronic music. Sartorius has released numerous solo albums, creates audiovisual art works, collaborates with musicians, writers and artists and performs live in intimate venues and on festival stages. In recent 3964 × 2643years, Julian Sartorius has collaborated with numerous musicians including Matthew Herbert, Sophie Hunger, Sylvie Courvoisier, Gyda Valtysdottir and Shahzad Ismaily. His remarkable percussion work is featured on the current albums of Kate Tempest and James Zoo.
