Pathos Trio is a two percussion and piano trio committed to combining aesthetics of contemporary classical music with their interests in dark, heavy, dense sounds drawn from various genres of music such as alternative rock, progressive/black metal, cathedral music, minimalist music, electronic synth-wave, and more, while also aiming to bring adventurous music to audiences through collaborations with young, living new music composers.
Their current project “When Dark Sounds Collide: New Music for Percussion and Piano”, the ensemble’s first album, comprises a collection of newly commissioned works for two percussionists and piano.

“With music strewn across the piano and bow hairs dangling out every which way, our aerial view allows us to see all of the secrets behind Pathos Trio’s inside-the-piano sounds: textured scrapes along ribbed metallic strings, delicate and ethereal pizzicato, and a haunting chorus of bowed strings and voices.”
— Amanda Cook, I Care If You Listen
“Over the past ten years or so, New York has become a hotbed of good percussion ensembles who’ve drawn the attention of similarly innovative, ambitious composers. With just one show under their respective belts, Pathos Trio have elevated themselves into those elite ranks alongside Yarn/Wire, So Percussion, Tigue, Iktus and Ensemble Et Al.” -NEW YORK MUSIC DAILY
