"Trapist is the Vienna based trio comprised of Joe Williamson on bass, Martin Siewart on guitar and Martin Brandlmayr on drums. The band recorded the basic tracks for Ballroom in one day, once again relying on improvisation for the direction of the songs. Trapist then brought the recording into their home studio where they overdubbed and drastically edited the resulting record. Using a variety of instruments including the vibraphone, a collection of synthesizers and modulators, as well as a few software-based treatments, the band gave even more life to their improvised recordings. Together the members of Trapist are a group of experienced improvisors who collectively like to explore and question familiar surroundings and contexts for both art and music. Thinking not only of melody and emotional elements in music, Trapist look additionally at structures and forms."
