Since its inception in spring 2006, Amsterdam-based Trio Scordatura has presented exploratory music by a range of contemporary composers and sound artists that looks toward new tuning systems and microtonality as a way of expanding the harmonic vocabulary of music. The basic soundworld of female voice, viola and MIDI keyboard is expanded by other sonorities depending on musical context. Their concerts feature “classics” from the worlds of microtonal and spectral music together with new commissions, sometimes crossing over into work in multimedia, involving text, video, dance, and light.
Trio Scordatura grew initially from a project to perform the works for intoning voice, Adapted Viola and Chromelodeon by the American iconoclast Harry Partch. Trio Scordatura has formed close working relationships with a number of leading contemporary composers, including Phill Niblock, the late Horatiu Radulescu, François-Bernard Mâche, Peter Adriaansz, Christopher Fox, Anne La Berge and Marc Sabat, and a range of young composers, with several of whom they have ongoing collaborations. One such is Scott Mc Laughlin, who in 2011 also became Trio Scordatura's regular sound technician.

“The playing of the Trio Scordatura is excellent throughout in what must be music peculiarly difficult to keep in tune, and vulnerable to the slightest error. The recording enables one to hear every detail. The recording is partially sponsored by the Ralph Vaughan Williams Trust, and one thinks that RVW himself would have enjoyed at least some of the music here.”
