At Cafe OTO

Amongst the shows over the next seven days, we’re very pleased to welcome back Chicago-based composer and sound artist, Olivia Block – her first OTO show since 2011 – following on from new album, Dissolution, on Jason Lescalleet’s Glistening Examples label.

This week’s digital release is a set from composer, musical theorist, multi-instrumentalist, and one of the founders of Fluxus, Philip Corner. His debut show at OTO last year was funny, sincere and inventive. Alongside his wife Phoebe Neville, the pair mixed relatively unheard compositions with stage interventions and brand new improvisations. At one special point, Corner and Neville – both blind behind Javanese masks – played a borrowed Casio and named the piece ‘Understanding’. Gold. More high-jinks and meditations inside.

Hope to see you here.

OTO RECOMMENDS:

HEN OGLEDD

17 FEBRUARY • JAZZ CAFE

Dawn Bothwell / Rhodri Davies / Richard Dawson

Originally formed as DAWSON-DAVIES: HEN OGLEDD by avant folk savant Richard Dawson and improv harp pioneer Rhodri Davies, now they’ve dropped the surnames and become a trio with the addition of Dawn Bothwell, who also performs altered electronic torch songs as Pentecostal Party. It’s been a transformative move, Dawson playing guitar, iPad and a panoply of table top knick knacks, Rhodri cleaving new spaces open with his blazing harp splutterations, with Bothwell’s sweet and sour voice and electronics taking the three of them down unexplored avenues littered with hypnotic diversions and long moments of delirium.
