The Michael Formanek Drome Trio have played together in different configurations since 2018 and have worked on music collectively as a trio since mid-2020. They are all composers and bandleaders and cover a huge range of musical territory between them. This incarnation focuses primarily on the compositions of Michael Formanek.
Their first recording as a group, Were We Where We Were, will be released in March 2022 on Formanek’s Circular File Records label on CD, limited edition vinyl, and digital formats. The stunning dark blue opaque vinyl LP was mastered by Alex DeTurk. It comes in a full color gatefold jacket adorned with original artwork by Stewart III and was designed by Steve Byram and Warren Linn.
The music is based on a set of musical palindromes that started out as graphic scores and were then reinterpreted into conventional music notation. For live performances in 2022, their concerts will center around this set of compositions and will also feature a selection of pieces from their vast collective trove of varied repertoire.
