At Cafe OTO

Hi there

Amongst the shows over the next seven days we’re very excited to welcome back Nigeran guitarist Mdou Moctar to OTO for a two day residency tonight and tomorrow after blistering shows here last Summer. One of the few original singer/songwriters willing to experiment and push the boundaries of the genre, his unconventional styles have won him accolades both in Niger and abroad.

On Friday, we host Polish band Księżyc following the release of Rabbit Eclipse on Penultimate Press. The spirit of Księżyc captures early and late medieval music with a sound rooted in the Slavic tradition combined with elements of minimalism and vocal experiments of the 20th Century. They’ll be joined on the bill by Irish composer/musician/performer, Áine O’Dwyer, for what should be a very special night.

Full listings for the week plus all new shows below, including Marc Ribot, Craig Leon, Heather Leigh and more.

Hope to see you here.

DIGITAL MEMBERSHIP:

JONE TAKAMÄKI – IMPROVISATION

Playing OTO back in 2014, Jone Takamaki explored a more physical approach to improvisation and manipulated the Japanese woodwind techniques he had been studying post Universal Mind. Spacious horizons of bells and electronics shrink away into claustrophobic rhythms of a home printer, and a gasping tenor sax mutates into psychotic murmuring that crawls right up inside of you.

£6 d/l (free for digital members) |

RHYS CHATHAM

SAT 4 NOVEMBER • 4PM
WHITECHAPEL GALLERY

Rhys Chatham performs a solo set in which his voice, trumpet, electric guitar, alto and C flutes, are played through multiple digital recordings and delays. The set is strongly influenced by early minimalism and the NoWave scene  at CBGBs, Max’s Kansas City, and the Mudd Club in New York during the ‘70s and ‘80s.

OTO RECOMMENDS:

CESURA//ACCESO – Call for Issue 2.

Cesura//Acceso are currently accepting submissions for their second issue, to be published in June 2016.

The central theme will be: Corrupting Desires! Technique, Performance and Control.

“We want to think about how music is made and experienced – revealing limits, exclusions, desires, strategies, optimism and pessimism. Frustrations, constraints and manipulations of makers and listeners often condition the ways we can feel or think through our engagements with music. We want to prise these contradictions in music open, revealing some of its fractures, as well as its generative and emancipatory possibilities.”
