‘Listening Forest’ – residency at Bundanon Trust
Siteworks Festival performance: 23rd Sept
The Splinter Orchestra is a large-scale electro-acoustic improvising ensemble based in Sydney, Australia. Formed in 2002, the group currently comprises 30+ members. It is one of the few groups of its kind in Australia and internationally, 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 – without any leaders or conductors.
