Amongst the shows over the next seven days, acclaimed composer, saxophonist and clarinetist, Mikołaj Trzaska makes a welcome return to OTO to perform two sets – in a trio with Mark Sanders (drums) and John Edwards (bass) as well as a saxophone duo with Seymour Wright.

This week’s digital release is Eva-Maria Houben’s first show at OTO. Part of the Wandelweiser collective, Houben creates vast, incorporeal forms from almost nothing – music that lingers long after the last note has dissipated. Includes the premiere of Tiefe – Depth for Piano – a flawless study in decay and resonance.

All of this week’s listings and newly announced shows below.

Hope to see you here.
