Amongst the shows over the next seven days, we host one of the first UK performances for an enthralling collaboration between France’s Delphine Dora and England’s Sophie Cooper, which draws on piano, trombone and wordless vocals. A session at Todmorden Unitarian Church resulted in the album Distance Future, released on the Yorkshire based “Was ist Das?” label last year – subsequently showing up in The Quietus and Pitchfork’s end of year lists.
