Pitch, The (Baltschun / Nutters / Joh / Thieke): KM28 [CASSETTE w/ DOWNLOAD] (Tripticks Tapes)

The Pitch is the Berlin quartet of Boris Baltschun on JI organ &, sines, Koen Nutters on upright bass, Morten Joh on JI electric vibes & cassette tape delay and Michael Thieke on clarinet, performing at Karl-Marx-Strasse 28 as they break off into solos, duos and trios to create spaciously reflective electroacoustic music of indirect melodic warmth and development; gorgeous.

"The Berlin-based clarinetist/composer/performer Michael Thieke is equally at home across a broad range of musical environments, such as experimental song forms, collectively composing projects, improvising collectives, and music on the fringes of jazz. He is exploring the minutiae of sound, timbre and noise, with a particular interest in microtonality and related sound phenomena, and with a preference for long-term collaborations and collective work.

Some of his current Projects are: The International Nothing (with Kai Fagaschinski cl, CD on ftarri), The Magic I.D. (with Christof Kurzmann, Kai Fagaschinski, Margareth Kammerer, CD/LP on ErstPop and staubgold), The Pitch (with Boris Baltschun organ, Koen Nutters b, Morten Olsen dr, LP on gaffer), Der lange Schatten (with Håvard Wiik p, Antonio Borghini b), Voutchkova/Thieke (with Biliana Voutchkova vl), Splitter Orchester, Toulemonde/Thieke (with Olivier Toulemonde acoustic objects), Hotelgäste (with Derek Shirley b, Dave Bennett g, CD on schraum, LP on self), Michael Thieke Unununium (with Luca Venitucci acc/p, Martin Siewert g, Christian Weber b, Derek Shirley b, Steve Heather dr, Eric Schaefer dr, CD on charhizma), motif (with Atle Nymo sax, Håkon Mjåset Johansen dr, Eivind Lønning tp, Ole Morten Vågan b, Håvard Wiik p), Porta Chiusa (with paed Conca cl, Hans Koch cl), Spirit Songs (with Mike Cooper voc/g, Elio Martusciello el, Fabrizio Spera dr, Luca Venitucci acc/el.), Roman Tics (with Burkhard Beins, Luca Venitucci, CD on Cathnor), Cowards Bend The Knee (Live Music in different setups with the film Cowards Bend The Knee by Guy Maddin), Gebhard Ullmann's The Clarinet Trio (with Gebhard Ullmann bass clarinet, Jürgen Kupke clarinet) and Uli Gumpert Workshop Band."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"KM28 is a registration of a Pitch concert in their hometown Berlin, in their favorite borough: Neukoelln, and their favorite venue: KM28. After having played in Poland the night before they're warmed up, slightly hung over, and very ready to play this new repertoire to a Covid-restricted, sold-out house.

The musical material delves deeper into Just Intonation and, for the first time, uses subgroups (solos, duos, trios) in a substantial way, to create a richer palette for the whole performance. In parts eschewing the otherwise quite dominant Harmona organ for an in depth listen to the timbres of scordatura tuned, plucked, bass harmonics, clarinet multiphonics blended with Just Intonation vibraphone, home-made, manipulated tape echo and a variety of computer-generated sine tone textures.

Included in this set, played as one long hypnotizing suite, are a new JI version of the classic 'Frozen Surface' piece and a reworking of a recent Pitch and String Quartet 'Pillars' piece. This is truly a comprehensive aural picture of The Pitch in late 2020."-TripTicks Tapes
