A Certain Trio
A Certain Trio (ACT) is a music and sound-art performance union based in Vienna and consisting of Evgenii Ignashev (RU/AT), Marcin Morga (AT), and Frederic Stritter (DE). ACT came into being in 2018, due to their shared passion for electroacoustic music and sonic art. Trio’s work incorporates concepts of free improvisation with artistic, social and somatic concepts and practices such as ‘The Discipline of Do Easy’ (W. Burroughs, Gus Van Sant), minimalism/maximalism, meditation, the cut-up technique (Brion Gysin), Dada, the theory of Orgone (Wilhelm Reich), and others.
ACT is unrestricted in their instrumentation and has been known to include elements such as an ARP 2600 modular synthesizer, a no-input mellotron mixer, and custom-built string instruments to create their compositions. All instruments are played live with the piece being conceptualised and adjusted to complement the acoustic and structural elements of the performance space.
