Retumbra is a collaborative trio with Noah Becker on clarinet, Jonah Udall on resonator guitar, and Steve Williams on upright bass, performing original works by each member of the group. The group combines the subtleties of drummer-less trios that have existed through recent decades with a grounding in new music and improvisation, culminating into a warm, ruminant, resonant sound. The sonic possibilities of clarinet, guitar, and bass allow the group to weave through various modes of composition, always seeking to explore new sounds and settings. Sensitive and strong-willed musicians, Noah, Jonah, and Steve constantly try to reach beyond the norm and create new textures through spontaneous creation and thoughtful reimaginings of their material.
