formed in berlin in 2009, the pitch is an experimental music quartet that explores the tension between tone, pitch, duration and rhythmic interplay. relying on bass-patterned structures and prescribed pitch combinations, the pitch creates what the four musicians refer to as “liquid music”. improvisation is an important element in their music, used as a generative device within specific shapes, structures and ideas. the four musicians’ combined experience in improvised music and sound-art makes the pitch an ideal starting point for new ideas in collective composition, and for the execution of conceptually grafted, open-form pieces. they have created a personal musical language and a body of work ranging from quartet music to extended, large-scale ensemble pieces, involving guest musicians and further conceptual elements.
