Melbourne based piano trio ISM, featuring bassist Isaac Gunnoo, pianist Selene Messinis, and drummer Maddison Carter formed in 2013, having already shared strong musical relationships together.
The first three years ISM spent playing together culminated in their premier album This Canvas, which comprises of all-original music written by its three members.
Their vast array of influences, tempered by their time together as a band has resulted in the formation of a complex, dynamic and ever-changing sound, which is only supported by their extensive performance experience, knowledge of different styles of music, and the application of improvisation to these elements. They do however, sound decidedly Australian, and their love of local musicians is evident.
One can, at times, hear anything from the classic piano trio sound of a group like the Keith Jarrett trio, to the lyricism of the music of Tony Gould, and the rhythmic complexities of the Avishai Cohen Trio, often within a single piece of music.
This ensemble has performed at such acclaimed music venues and events as Bennetts Lane Jazz Club, Uptown Jazz Cafe, Deakin Edge, and the Stonnington Jazz Festival.
The three members, out of the Victorian College of the Arts, have become well-known and highly sought-after musicians and composers in the world of improvised music.
This ensemble is the result of the desire to pay homage to the timeless piano trio, while breaking down the confines of what is expected of a piano trio. The result is a group which is in constant development, never twice the same.
