Trapist is Martin Brandlmayr on drums, Martin Siewert on guitars & electronics and Joe Williamson on bass. Since they started working as a trio in 2000 Trapist have released two full-length albums, "Highway My Friend" on HatHut/ Hatology (2002) and "Ballroom" on Thrill Jockey (2004).

Drawing from both a wide variety of influences ranging from space rock to improvised minimal music, and from folk-influenced psychedelia to noise as well as the members' numerous collaborations the band has managed to establish an unique ensemble sound defying categorization, blending both acoustic and electronic instruments as well as blurring the gaps between improvisational music and prestructured forms.
