The Pitch (Berlin/Amsterdam)
Michael Thieke - clarinet,
Boris Baltschun - pump organ,
Koen Nutters (from TAPE THAT) - upright bass
Morten J. Olsen (from MoHa!) - vibraphone.
"With the help of several acoustic devices The Pitch navigates through sonic territories with a fairly unique approach and instrumentation. Their navigational tools are the exaltation of a clarinet, the bruteness of a pump organ, the colours of a vibraphone and the airy profoundness of a double bass. The quartet neither plays compositions nor do they improvise - they play music that is structured in such a way that it guarantees a maximum of flexibility yet ensures an audible coherence of pitch and sound material. The result is a beautiful combination of Feldman-like-melodies and slowly evolving tapestries of layered colourful sumptuousness evoking feelings of timelessness and expansion."
