Part TWO of Splatter's performance at IKLECTIC. Enjoy!

Our last album - Cloudseed - reviewed at www.jazz.pt by Paulo Chagas

"Taylor’s sound is crystalline and delicate, always keeping a certain amount of sweetness in the clarinets, especially the soprano, even during the most daring passages. When he switches to the bass it is like the steady swing of a pendulum. The alto saxophone of Berliner, Anna Kaluza, interpolates something of the fuller quality of the language of modern European jazz. The guitar of our fellow countryman, Pedro Velasco, fills every corner of the album with a filigree ambience that superficially appears understated, but is truly assertive. Mazur proves equal to the task, providing an exceptional bass that is always more melodic than rhythmic. The drums of Greenhalgh work as a sort of ‘boomerang’, switching the rhythm almost short of and almost beyond the pulsing time. All this movement of sound combined together is brilliantly paradoxical, taking us as close as possible as it gets to daydreaming." Paulo Chagas

Splatter play improvised music that is not quite many things. It isn't quite jazz, it isn't quite free jazz, it isn't quite free improvisation, it isn't quite avant rock or plain old rock, or folk music or contemporary music - it is all of these things, mixed together in the moment - sometimes in the same tune.

TimeOut remarked that Splatter 'feed shards of rock and black metal into their freeform jazz Soundscapes". It's close ernough...

Noel Taylor - clarinets
Anna Kaluza - saxophone
Pedro Velasco - guitar
Tom Greenhalgh - drums

Recorded and filmed live at the IKLECTIK, London on the 19th Nov 2016.
Recorded and mastered by Saint Austral Sound

2nd news of the day, I’ve created a facebook personal page. That is a big event around here seeing how much I dislike the thing!
Anyway, Pedro Velasco is on Facebook. Like it if you like it!

Monday, 2nd of March 2015

An exciting new project in the making. ‘Plank’ is best described by Noel Taylor as:
‘Plank’ first played together as a heavily ‘deputised’ version of the Berlin/London band ‘Splatter’ and enjoyed themselves so much they desperately wanted to play again in their own right.

The band consist of:

Noel Taylor – clarinets
Rachel Musson – sax
Pedro Velasco – guitar
Ansuman Biswas – percussion

We will be playing on the 17th of March at the arch1. Please come and join us!
