Splitrec is the recording arm of the Splinter Orchestra. Releases and interviews from Sydney’s vibrant exploratory/spontaneous music scene.

We make our work on the land of the Eora (Iyora) nation,  paying our respects to elders past, present and emerging and recognising their continuing connection to land, waters and culture on country that was never ceded. Eora means ‘here’ or ‘from this place.’

We’ve birthed a new animal.
