Originally released in 2008. Recording The Grain is a full-bodied and mature presentation of Office-R(6)'s highly personal take on improvisation. Their blend of tight ensemble playing and precise use of electronics bring out the best of both worlds. As the group fuses ideals from composition with the art of improvisation, they create a vivid session of electro-acoustic gymnastics ready to bring music to the next level of engagement. The improvisations of OR(6) are all based on an expanding catalog of structures that define different elements of each piece. Their live approach was brought into the STEIM studio and performed live, ensuring that this hyperactive collision of prepared and intuitive elements would not rule out the human touch and the quality of split-second decision-making. Members include: Koen Nutters (upright bass, structure), Robert Van Heumen (laptop, LISA), Jeff Carey (laptop, super collider), Sakir Oguz Buyukberber (bass clarinet), Dirk Bruinsma (soprano and baritone sax) and Morten J. Olsen (percussion).
