Treppenwitz

About Treppenwitz

Treppenwitz is the meeting of three musicians: pianist Matthew Aplin (Mansion of Snakes, KOG and the Zongo Brigade), bassist Tom Riviere (Family Band) and drummer/LCoM lecturer Steve Hanley (Jamie Taylor, Svarc Trio, Richard Iles). The central philosophy is that the world of sound is interconnected, and different strains of music represent outgrowths from the same seed. Explorative passages of beauty and space sit comfortably alongside explosive bursts of freedom, held together by the connective tissue of improvisation. Compositions are written by the members, with something open-ended deliberately in mind; the shapes and contours of the music develop organically, different every time, always seeking.

In 2018, they were selected for Jazz North’s Northern line touring support scheme. Subsequently they toured the UK extensively, with support from Jazz North and Arts Council England.

Their sophomore album, The Kennedys at Beaver Point, was released by New Jazz Records in January 2019. CDs and digital download available at: www.treppenwitzmusic.bandcamp.com

A third album currently awaits release.
