"After a ten date European tour with 'Dave Rempis' Percussion Quartet', finishing in Pozanan, Poland, I jumped on a train for a short ride over to Berlin. Meeting up with two of my friends, who also happen to be two of my favorite musicians in the world, we spent an afternoon at Frangenheim studios producing sounds, drinking plenty of coffee, and having a blast doing it. Hope you enjoy the results!"-Tim Daisy, Chicago October 2013



"Tim Daisy is a Chicago based percussionist, composer and educator working in the fields of improvised and composed music. Born and raised in northeastern Illinois, he moved to Chicago in 1997 and has since performed, recorded, and toured with many acclaimed musicians and ensembles from both the USA and abroad. Tim also maintains an active touring schedule, working with a number of musicians and ensembles and has traveled extensively throughout North America and Europe. Working in a number of different environments, he has composed for solo percussion, chamber groups, jazz ensembles, dance, theater, and film.

Tim has had the fortunate experience to work with many of the most cutting edge musicians currently working in the filed of improvised music including: Ken Vandermark, Jeb Bishop, Fred Lonberg-Holm, James Falzone, Dave Rempis, Steve Swell, John Tchicai, Mars Williams, Joe McPhee, Matt Bauder, Michael Zerang, and Frank Rosaly, and Aram Shelton.

Håvard Wiik (1975) studied jazz and composition at the jazz department at Trondheim Music Conservatory. He is one of Norway's most respected and profiled jazz pianists. He has for more than a decade been a member and founder of several the most important Norwegian ensembles (Atomic, Element, Free Fall) and he's also a been first choice in accompaniment of several international jazz greats. He has toured all over the world with these groups. In 2004 he had the honourably role as 'artist in residence' at the Molde international Jazzfestival in Norway. In 2006 he also received one the greatest acknowledgement for a Norwegian jazz musician, the Kongsberg Jazzfestival's 'Vital-prize.IN 2007 he relocated to Berlin where he works with people like Axel Dörner, Michael Thieke, Jan Roder and Antonio Borghini.

Clayton Thomas is a double bassist and grass roots organiser working in the broad spectrum of improvised music. Equally at home playing at high, medium and starkly reduced energy levels, he finds inspiration in creative music and musicians of all generations. He is the founder of The Splinter Orchestra, the NOW now festival and the concert series 'if you like improvised music, we like you." in Sydney, Australia.

"I'm trying to work out a physical activity equally engaged in electronic and acoustic music aesthetics, while maintaining the kind of transitional and transformative energy of the music that changed my life. I draw inspiration from creative music of all eras, happily learning from and engaging with improvisers, sound artists, composers and thinkers alive and kicking in the 21st century. I have been inspired and pushed by many great musicians, but would especially thank Jon Rose, Jim Denley, Andrew Meisel, Cooper-Moore, Tony Buck and Hollis Taylor for doing some real work on the topic. All my music is dedicated to my first teachers, Wilber Morris and Peter Kowald." "-Relay Recordings

"Double Bassist Clayton Thomas was born 1976, in Hobart, Australia. Inspired by the sound, velocity and social movements of jazz, Clayton has dedicated his musical life to finding a personal truth that links his own cultural life as a white Australian, with the radical, far reaching pursuits found within the creative music. What he can't find as a bass player, he searches for in the organisation of unreasonably large ensembles.

Clayton Thomas relocated in Sydney, Australia, in 2014. Clayton is currently not a regular member of the Splitter Orchester, but he was part of the 2014 concert @ MaerzMusik and he'll also take part in the 2015 concerts in Berlin and Huddersfield."

"Håvard Skarpnes Wiik (born March 10, 1975) in Kristiansund, Norway is a Norwegian jazz pianist and composer, known from a number of recordings with bands like Atomic, and performances with musicians like Petter Wettre, Ola Kvernberg and Stian Carstensen.

Wiik caused sensation at 17 years old in a concert at the Moldejazz, with bassist Steinar Raknes, as the "Wiikrak Duo". He attended the jazz program at Trondheim musikkonservatorium from 1994 to 96, where he and fellow students established the jazz band Element.

After moving to Oslo he has been a key player in many band projects, such as Atomic, "Free Fall", "Atomic Schooldays", a duo with Håkon Kornstad, a new project with Axel Dörner and Fredrik Ljungkvist. He has been an obvious choice as collaborator with giants in jazz, Kenny Wheeler, Lee Konitz, Joe Lovano representing the old school, and Ken Vandermark being a soul mate from the here and now., for example the band Motif. He also led the Håvard Wiik Trio with Mats Eilertsen (bass) and Per Oddvar Johansen (drums), to release Postures (Jazzland, 2003).

Wiik was recogniced as "Artist in residence" at the Moldejazz (2004). At the Kongsberg Jazz Festival (2006), he was awarded the Vital prize, giving him the opportunity to perform as solo artist, and release the album Palinode (2007). He also started his own H.W. Trio, releasing Postures (2003), performing his own compositions. He transformed the trio to The Arcades Project (2007). In this version of the trio we find Håkon Mjåset Johansen on drums and Ole Morten Vågan on bass. They have also been involved within bands such as Urban Connection, Come Shine, Bugge Wesseltoft's New Conception of Jazz."
