The NOW now and the New Music Network present: The Splinter Orchestra @ PACT Centre for Emerging Arts
* * * * *
Saturday 24th May at Midday: A rare opportunity to see and hear extended performances by Sydney’s large-scale electro-acoustic improvising ensemble THE SPLINTER ORCHESTRA.
The Splinter Orchestra is one of the few groups of its kind in Australia and worldwide. Since its inception in 2002, the group has consisted of an evolving membership of 20+ members, bringing together musicians from various musical backgrounds to combine and collaborate on equal terms. Made-up of individuals from the improvised music, jazz and classical scenes, electronic musicians, sound artists and those who are involved in environmental sound and field recording, the Splinter Orchestra creates a stark minimalism despite their large number.

Jim Denley, Cor Fuhler, & The Splinter Orchestra
