More Info

Dronecore. This is the third part in TROUMs Tjukurrpa-trilogy, following part 1 (harmonies) and part 2 (drones). This final part is dedicated to rhythms and pulsations, with a focus on rhythmic, pounding, looping & repetitive elements and structures.
With TJUKURRPA 3, TROUM shows a not so well known side, using the trance-power of repetitive textures. In every of the seven extensive tracks (playtime 66+ min) rhythms in various moods build the basis: from smooth ambience-pulsations over ritualistic surroundings up to ecstatic pounding harshness, from underneath & soft pulsative patterns up to evolving harsh & overwhelming rhythmic loops. The music on Tjukurrpa III is made by raw & processed loops & handplayed percussion, along with electric guitar & bass, balalaika, mouth organ, male & female human voice, flute, and accordeon. No samplers, synths or computers used. [press release]

...The global rhythm of the album is just like a biorhythm, it becomes the final shape depending on the many individual elements. Devouring or emphasizing each other, they develop inside the organism and join insensibly to our attitude, becoming habitual part of it like breathing or palpitation. The standard rhythmical structures can just diversify the physical course of time sensation - unlike that, Troum music embraces all association models control in the human brain, so it will enchant you and not let you go... despite your frame of mind and inclination. [Dmitry Vasilyev, IEM Magazine]

Their trilogy is a true masterpiece in the genre. [Fdw, Vital Weekly]
