Since their inception as Torngat in 2001, Montreal’s Julien Poissant (drum kit, trumpet, percussion, keyboard, melodica), Pietro Amato (french horn, electronics, percussion, melodica), and Mathieu Charbonneau (Wurlitzer, Analog Synth, Hammond, trumpet, percussion, melodica) have come to be regarded as an extremly innovative instrumental trio. These are mature players who trust each other implicitly and the lush atmosphere of their records is brought to life when Torngat perform publicly. Playfully avoiding every possible pigeon hole, Torngat’s compositions and improvisations engage listeners with beautiful melodies, and unexpected surprises. The group combines the sheer joy they share playing together with an earnest belief in their craft. Torngat's bold, sensual and sublime synths and pianos, French horns and trumpets, xylophones and drums conspiring at the crossroads of chamber music, indie pop and jazz.
