One of the more exploratory groups on the record label, Trio Untold is a group of improvising composers who compose music spontaneously. The group is comprised of three music professors in Oregon. James Miley of Willamette University (WU) plays piano and synthesizers. Mike Nord of WU plays guitars and electronics. Ryan Biesack of Oregon State University plays drums, cymbals, and percussion. Together they freely compose music that Douglas Detrick says, “sounds carefully sown, and intently cultivated. Where some improvised music sounds like a fight between broken-down robots, or like old friends catching up after years apart, this music sounds like a garden.“
