Tropos is an ever-morphing collective ensemble of improviser-composers based in New York City led by pianist and composer Phillip Golub and drummer/percussionist Mario Layne Fabrizio. Tropos is characterized by unusual instrumentations that allow for unique improvisational sound worlds to emerge and inspire its members to write in new ways. All members of Tropos compose for the ensemble while they're in it. Tropos is also a true collective in that its members share the administrative work and financial costs of each project they are involved with. Tropos is now developing a new set of music for a quartet formation featuring Yuma Uesaka (clarinets), Ledah Finck (violin), Aaron Edgcomb (drums/percussion), and Golub (piano).
