Triosk were an experimental jazz band from Sydney, Australia, who formed in 2001 and disbanded in 2007. Though coming from a jazz foundation, their sound has very strong electronica elements as well as influences from the textures of musique concrète, with their use of loops of hisses and crackles. They released three albums: 1+3+1 in 2003 (a collaboration with German electronic artist Jan Jelinek on Berlin label ~scape); 2004's Moment Returns and The Headlight Serenade in 2006 (both released on The Leaf Label).

Laurence Pike is also a member of experimental rock band PVT (Warp), Roam the Hello Clouds and records and tours with Flanger, Savath and Savalas, Jack Ladder, Qua and jazz veteran Mike Nock. Pianist Adrian Klumpes released a solo album titled Be Still on The Leaf Label in late 2006. Both Moment Returns and Headlight Serenade were co-produced by Richard Pike of Pivot.
