The Hexen Trio made its debut at the 2010 TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival. Comprised of three internationally known musicians:  Hexen is a dynamic musical force whereby the music's expression travels from performances of shimmering lyrical beauty to electrifying savage passion. The players draw deeply from the traditions of European classical (from baroque through the 20th century), jazz, open improvisation, and world music. All three of the musicians bring a lifetime of experience working with some of the best improvisers and composers of the past 40 years in their quest to create a music which is spiritually transformative. The synergy of musical energy as shared and developed by Hexen showcases their years of creating music which results in an experience that is both focused in compositional clarity while tapping into a creative space that reveals the mysteries of inspired improvisation.
The Hexen Trio's origins go back to 1994 in Vancouver when Paul Plimley worked with Barry Guy to record the CD Witch Gong Game, a large ensemble composition of Barry's written for the NOW Orchestra. Subsequently they played some duo concerts and recorded their first duo cd entitled Sensology. Lucas Niggli has worked with Barry almost as long and these two artists have  collaborated on numerous CDs and concerts in Europe and North America. Each member of Hexen has received  many awards and music grants over the years, rave reviews from the music press for their performances in festivals, and documented their music on a wide offering of CD, radio, and television broadcasts.
The Hexen Trio will be celebrating their first trio CD release for Intakt records, recorded during their 2012 European tour.
