The third release of the 24-piece Splitter Orchester is, like its predecessors, a collaboration. This time they team up with the The Pitch, a quartet consisting to 3/4 out of Splitter Orchester-members. "Frozen Orchestra (Splitter)" is their latest compositional effort in translating the quartet’s language to a large format ensemble utilizing the sensibilites and possibilites of Splitter Orchester’s electro-acoustic instrumentation. "Frozen" thereby indicates a very slowly moving field of harmonic relationships consisting of so-called pitch sets, which are augmented by noise sets, that is, non-periodic sounds organized in equivalent relationships. The score guides the group through various defined states of frozen surfaces where each player makes individual choices from a set of intervals or noises and thus constantly shifts harmonic weight and textural quality. In the multicoloured sound of Splitter Orchester, the planar drones receive an iridescent depth. Monochromatic fields of sound grow out of the continuum, its steady flow letting them vary almost unnoticeably.
