Clayton Thomas (double bass) and Burkhard Beins (percussion) have worked together in several projects, as part of the Berlin Sound Connective (with Ignaz Schick and Thomas Ankersmit as regular members and changing guest members contributing live remixes and electronic treat-ments), but also as the 'rhythm section' of Rhythm Complication & Brass, a project that merges a live series of bass & drums duos and four different brass solos into a virtual sextet (to be released on vinyl soon). A following project Rhythm Complication & Reeds is coming up in 2011
5:The Pitch:
Boris Baltschun & Michael Thieke & Morten J. Olsen & Koen Nutters 
With the help of several acoustic devices- navigating through sonic territories with a unique approach and instrumentation. The quartet neither plays compositions nor do they improvise - their vehicles used for travelling are combinations of pitch-sets, dimension-sets, superimposition-sets and duration-sets. With the help of these sets they are able to explore hitherto unknown regions of time based events. Navigational tools are the exaltation of a clarinet, the bruteness of a pump organ, the lushness of a vibraphone and the profoundness of a double bass. First lp soon out on gaffer records.
