Program note

In the midst of Trespassing is the first piece composed specifically for Trio Trespassing (Niklas Brommare – percussion, Daniel Frankel – violin and Jesper Nordin – electronics). The basic material in the piece are the improvisations of the group that are then sculpted and remixed.

In the midst of Trespassing is an enlargement of an earlier piece – The Dangers of Trespassing that was commissioned by Mairie de Paris for the cultural centre Le Cent Quatre.

Trio Trespassing was founded by percussionist Niklas Brommare and composer Jesper Nordin after their collaboration on the piece Vintage at IRCAM in 2003. After being joined by violinist Daniel Frankel the idea of the ensemble became to walk between borders of different styles of music. Trespassing play compositions interweaved and interrupted by improvisations. From their base in contemporary music they trespass into traditional folk music, classical music, electronic music and beyond. For more info see
