**edition of 120** This new tape release by The Pitch (an improvising ensemble of four Berlin-based with Boris Baltschun, Koen Nutters, Morten J. Olsen and Michael Thieke) comprises two renditions of two of their newest compositional strategies (Molecular Motion and Pillars) captured with a new combined double cassette machine and digital stereo recording technique creating cassette delay and a grimy, expanded, acoustic sound.
The Pitch uses these compositional strategies to create pieces which give the players choices that can be made as they play in each particular musical environment. The balance and circumstances change from moment to moment depending on the individual decisions regarding dynamics, pitch, octaves, doublings and so on. The tension this creates keeps every rendition dynamic and alive. A challenge to play together and create a brilliant surface above unfathomable depths inside of a set structure every time.
The Group Monday’s Drop(s) was created in the University of Thessaly (Department of early Childhood Education) in the frame of P. Kanellopoulos’ project “The Scandal of Musical Democracy”.
