Microtub consists of three microtonal tubas. Since 2010 they have explored microtonal music with their unique instruments.

The trio have released five albums and performed at major experimental music festivals in Europe and America, such as FIMAV in Quebec, Sonic Acts in Amsterdam, Ultima in Oslo and Sound of Stockholm in Sweden.

"...The music seems to have a power to alter mood or, that phantom of identity, consciousness. To listen to Microtub is to become that sound, which has both a resonance and, further, an inclusiveness. Heard live, that sound is the room, heard on headphones, that sound is one’s mind. As I keep learning, the more valuable a music, the less likely one can describe it effectively, but if a 27-minute CD sounds short to you, think of this one as 27 minutes of eternity." - Point of Departure, from review of Sonic Drift

"...the trio's music exudes a powerful visceral quality. Bite of the Orange sounds both strangely familiar and strikingly alien, clearly circumscribed yet filled with infinite possibilities. It is often said that all music has already been written. As Microtub's intriguing sonic research proves, whomever made this claim may just not have been digging deep enough." - Those who Make Waves
