Three is an innovative new chamber ensemble, exploring new textures and sonorities by combining trumpet, trombone, and guitar with live electronics and soundscapes.

Formed by three Melburnians, Three's aim is to establish new and cutting-edge repertoire for trumpet, trombone and guitar with a special focus on presenting performances that resonate with current day audiences. Three has commissioned numerous composers in Australia and abroad, and has benefitted by multiple commission grants from the Australia Council for the Arts.
