The trio اسم release their debut studio recorded album named:
A title heralding the strophe by Swedish pianist Per Henrik Wallin: Naturen i sin outgrundlighet slår tillbaka (Nature in its inscrutability strikes back).
اسمs music, in its inscrutability, strikes back throughout the entity of this CD. Acoustically, the trio creates abstract forms close of written contemporary music with sounds reminding us of traditional jazz trios. The groove which appears in this music is dense, extreme but always quiet. Music in a continuous flow of high voltage charges.
