North of North

‘North of North’ is an improvising trio with Scott Tinkler, trumpet, Erkki Veltheim, violin, and Anthony Pateras, piano. Formed in 2015, it brings together three instrumentalists whose practice spans a wide breadth of contemporary music genres and styles. In this trio, the focus is on completely improvised materials, drawing on some of the musical interests and influences that the members share, including composers such as Iannis Xenakis and Morton Feldman, the rhythmic structures of Indian Carnatic music and Australian improvisers Mark Simmonds and John Rodgers. The trio released an album in early 2016 on Anthony Pateras’s label ‘Immediata’.
