Thymolphthalein : Mad Among The Mad (Immediata)

Label: Immediata    
Released in: Australia    


"A Franco-Australian quintet active 2009-2013, Thymolphthalein worked in the field of live instrumental electro-acoustic music. Employing organizational frameworks stemming from open-from 20th/21st century composition, rhythmically-geared outsider electronics and systematized improvisational strategies, this is the music of the possible. Mad Among The Mad is the definitive document of six incredible electro-acoustic instrumental works performed by Thymolphthalein, following up their 2011 cult Editions Mego debut Ni Maitre, Ni Marteau. Featuring compositions and improvisations written collaboratively by the group, this disc has been meticulously recorded over 4 European cities, capturing the band at their peak."-Immediata

"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."
