Intra-Splinter - Splinter Orchestra

  • Down / Under Space (Freda's) 109 Regent Street Redfern, NSW, 2016 Australia (map)

Our next group exhibtion will be from Sydney's large-scale electro-acoustic improvising ensemble Splinter Orchestra. 


Much of splinter’s public work the last few years has been an exploration of choreographed orchestral playing in vast spaces - at Mungo and Bundanon the geophony (wind) and biophony (bugs and birds) had as much say as any anthrophony (cars, planes and music).

Intra-Splinter will focus down to relationships and cultures within the group - in a small, urban space Splinter presents and listens into a series of sub groups. 

In our search for relevant orchestral music for our time/space we hope this re-focusing will add to our knowledge and mutual respect for each other’s ongoing development, and hence the evolution of the collective.

These performances will be set against and punctuate the backdrop of Splintstallations: small sound installations designed to both exist independently, as well as coexist with each other... just like the many voices of Splinter work together, sometimes in parallel, sometimes intersecting...

This event will open Wednesday 22nd of November with performances from various members of the collective to follow on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings 6-9pm.
