TRIOS 01: lo-fi chamber electronica (released on 2/1/2021)
TRIOS 02: post-cello generations (released on 3/1/2021)
TRIOS 03: custom funk (release date: 4/1/2021)
This is my first release in six years, nevertheless a lot of music has been brewing.
Taking the sound and feel of the cello from inside the fiber.
After a six-year recording hiatus, songwriter/cellist Trevor Exter takes a left-turn into experimental territory with three "TRIOS" releases in early 2021. He’s always turned heads with striking cello performances and songwriting, but with this set Exter firmly plants his flag as an instrumental artist. Making creative use of the algorave toolkit, Exter softens his digital soundscape with primal cello explorations and hints of funk, beguiling new and longtime fans alike.
Using close-capture of the cello, throbbing beats, live-coded synths and a wash of ASMR elements, TRIOS 01 is a fresh take on ambient/electronic.
For TRIOS 02, with all the synth sounds bouncing around, the cello still wants to be heard. With the second installment Trevor pushes further into electronica while also giving room for some adventurous cello performances as well.
TRIOS 03 will be released on 4/1/2021.
Exter has a diverse resumé, having toured internationally with author James McBride, guitar wizard Steve Kimock and the immersive Argentine sensation De La Guarda.
