The FRAGMENTATION ORCHESTRA is a large ensemble founded in 2023 by Kriton Beyer, consisting of 12 internationally established musicians from the Berlin improvised, experimental and jazz music scene, while incorporating also the wider musical background of its members, such as contemporary, electroacoustic and electronic music influences.

The orchestra operates somewhere in between the fields of composed and improvised music and tries to use as broad a spectrum of improvisational and compositional approaches as possible, with a special focus on structured collective improvisation.

All members of the FRAGMENTATION ORCHESTRA function as composers, performers and improvisers at the same time.
