At Cafe OTO

Cafe OTO

Hi there

Amongst the shows over the next seven days, we host an evening of free-reed instruments in new music, featuring Amsterdam-based English musician and concertina player Seamus Cater and accordion sets from American composer and improviser, Leo Svirsky and English composer, Howard Skempton.

For this week’s digital release, field recording artist Jeph Jerman and percussionist and sound designer Tim Barnes offer powerful, minimal music rooted in a shared dedication to the creative act of listening. Recorded live during their 2015 visit to Non-Event in Boston, MA, Goethe is an impossibly detailed and displaced inventory of sounds – composed and structured in the sonic territory of Graham Lambkin or Taku Unami.

Hope to see you here.

OTO RECOMMENDS:

Ensemble Variances at
St John’s Smith Square

Wednesday 22 February 7.30pm

Thierry Pécou leads Ensemble Variances in a performance of his monumental work Outre-mémoire. Often compared to the Messiaen’s Quatuor du Fin du Temps, it was composed in response to the musical ramifications of colonisation and slavery – a potpourri of dark harmonies, violent rhythms, and colourful, tropical soundworlds; music providing joy and relief from the bitterness of isolation.
