novatrio is an open-ended ensemble with a focus on classical/contemporary music and new media. Unlike traditional trio which consists of three fixed musicians, NovaTrio is composed of three fluid criterion:
musician + artist (from various media) + technology
Rather than a trademark of any individual entity, NovaTrio is a manifesto of new approaches towards classical/contemporary music and performance with various art forms. It is open to musicians, performers, artists, designers and technology in any form of configuration. NovaTrio attempts to derive the spirit from Wagner’s Gesamtkunstwerk (“total work of art”) into a micronized contemporary sense, thus to bring new dimensions to the performance of whether a 300 year old Bach or a 21st century work-in-progress.
