Vasco Trilla es actualmente es uno de los percusionistas más sólidos y demandados de la escena de músicas improvisadas en Europa. Versátil y creativo, Vasco Trilla ha grabado más de 60 discos que van desde la improvisación libre, el jazz-rock, rock progresivo, metal, hasta el ambient. Su trabajo, reconocido internacionalmente, se ha desarrollado especialmente en Polonia, Holanda y Portugal.

Las claves de su éxito se resume en tres factores: imaginación, versatilidad estilística y la constante búsqueda más allá de los límites del instrumento.

Ha editado discos en Clean Feed Records, Cuneiform Records, No Business, Not Two, Astral Spirits, Klopotec, Fmr records, Fundacja Słuchaj, Multikulti, y Creative Sources y Discordian Records, entre otros.    

Ha colaborado con músicos de la talla de Bob Moses, Marshall Allen, Christer Bothen, Jamaaladeen Tacuma, Mars Williams, Richard Barret, Susana Santos Silva, Colin Marston, Jarboe, Rodrigo Amado, Peter Evans y Luis Lopes, entre otros grandes nombres.

“Vasco Trilla is a masterful visionary sonic alchemist, a sound painter of subtlety and grace. His work has a great capacity for stillness and space, qualities both rare and much needed in these chaotic overstimulated times. These are healing deep breath percussive meditations channeled by Señor Trilla direct from Spirit as a blessing for mind and soul.”

– Ra Kalam Bob Moses

“Vasco is really one of the modern masters of a new ‘free sound approach’ to drum set and percussion. Defying the accepted conventions of speed, and ‘flashy’ drum set playing, he makes an incredible musical statement, taking us through a myriad of tones and emotions along a varied and tonally hybrid journey.”

– Pete Lockett

“He is amazing in many aspects, he can use anything you want for creative drumming. Frankly speaking I hardly know anyone as inventive in drumming as him.”

– Maciej Lewenstein, Polish Jazz and Beyond

“A clockwork alchemist of percussion”

– Dave Foxall, A Jazz Noise

“Trilla’s breadth of experience makes him a particularly protean drummer—he slides easily from playing precise time and complex changes to driving, pulse-based free drumming to almost indeterminate experiments in noise, using bells, bows, and other objects to create shimmering— and sometimes menacing—fields of sound.”

– Dan Sorrells, The Free Jazz Collective

“(Vasco) has released more than 15 albums since the beginning of 2018, all of which highlight his idiosyncratic conception of time, pulse and space. His recent solo project and collaborations with like-minded improvisers offer insights to his masterful, brilliant work, and his unique ability to transform all objects into percussive machines.”

– Eyal Hareuvni, Salt Pean

“A boiling crucible of ideas, a multitude of experiences not only in the field of improvised music (…), unique musical craft, a wide repertoire of techniques implemented in sound production and a huge… practical knowledge of physics. No sound is obvious, and the level of predictability of what is going to happen reaches negative values.”

– Andrzej Nowak, Spontaneous Music Tribune

“Finally something different in today’s improvised percussion panorama. Being one of the first solo percussion improvisers in the 70s, I paid special attention to Vasco’s work. This new music is a fresh blossoming of ideas and sounds. Vasco is a minimalist in percussion,each sound is accurately chosen and explored to an extreme end. A world of larger horizons and open skies where the percussion trigger the most inner intense feeling in the listener.”

– Andrea Centazzo

Hola, esto es Sonotopías: Paisajes sonoros habitados por raras músicas. Otro espacio de 4’33” Café, dedicado a la música que nos emociona.

Nuestra intención es juntar en una sesión, todas esas canciones que quedan resonando después de una profunda escucha. También es una forma de hacer llegar el trabajo de creadoras, creadores y sellos independientes a otros lugares para que sean escuchados, compartidos y comprados.

Nuestra cuarta entrega es un monográfico dedicado al trabajo del genial Vasco Trilla, seguramente el baterista más versátil y creativo que puede escucharse hoy día en la escena barcelonesa. Gracias inmensas a Vasco por la buena onda y por toda la ayuda. Mucha suerte, maestro.

Y gracias a todas y todos los que nos escuchan y apoyan. Feliz escucha.
