The Pitch is an improvising ensemble of four Berlin-based creative musicians founded in 2009.
With acoustic instruments and minimal live-electronics they collectively compose structures
which generate hypnotic melodic movement and deep acoustic textures. Bowed and struck
vibraphone tones resonate with bowed bass harmonics, doubled by clarinet and reinforced by
organ and sine tones. An intensely focused performance creates an atmosphere where the
listeners perception is slowed down to make the smallest sonic details move from background
to foreground. The group continually expands into new terrain of musical material and playing
styles inspired by fundamental states of matter (and variations thereof) - frozen surfaces,
gaseous states, plasmatic fibrils, liquid patterns and molecular
Intensely colourful, shifting densities, concentrated, slowly-shifting patterns and fluctuations.
