Bloomington, Indiana instrumental trio Ativin explores the outer reaches of dynamic songwriting and performance. Their music is sometimes delicately brooding, immersing the listener with complexly interwoven and beautiful guitar, and sometimes it is crushingly powerful, gaining volume and momentum and pushing the limits of instrumentation with intricate arrangements and dramatic time changes. Ativin's music is influenced by the crashing storm and stress of Chicago bands like [a=Shellac], the orchestral nuances of Louisville's Rodan and [a=Rachel's], and the free experimentation of instrumental jazz.
