This may be the first time the G/H duo has performed using only two seated drumkits.......


Marcos Fernandes - percussion, electronics
Curtis Glatter - hybrid trapkit, electronics
Nathan Hubbard - drumkit, percussion

Troikastra: In Aug. 2005, Percussionist/Composer Curtis Glatter assembled a new electronics-based ensemble combining the sounds of hybrid musical influences of ambient electronics and phonography and mixing it with raw cross-cultural percussion..the members of Troikastra seek to explore new territory by blurring the lines of musical genres with an extensively wide range of influences by cross-fertilizing the genres of classical, avant garde, trip-hop and scratch-dub . The music of Troikastra includes a distinct mixture of phonographic/electro-acoustic serenity as well as dense aural sound-scapes utilizing electronic frame, found sounds, turntables, samples and a hybrid trap kit played by Glatter.
