Formed in 2017, Griff has performed at venues and festivals around Germany and Austria and will release its debut album on the label Inexhaustible Editions in late 2020. The trio creates narratives around slowly evolving textural and rhythmical structures that magnifies the unique timbre of each sonic event, while allowing the resonances of the individual instruments to enter into complex dialogues with each other.
