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….
Splatter’s line-up is:
Anna Kaluza (Germany) – alto sax
Noel Taylor (UK) – clarinet
Pedro Velasco (Portugal) – guitar
Tom Greenhalgh (UK) – drums
Michael Caratti was the drummer on the album ‘Scraffiti‘ but has since returned to Australia.
