At Cafe OTO

Hi there

Amongst the shows over the next seven days, we host [Modern Ritual] – a night of new performances exploring ideas of ritual through music and words, evoking real and fictional landscapes. Featuring solo sets from Charles Hayward, Laura Cannell and Hoofus, a new collaboration between Laura & Charles and a new performance/talk by Jennifer Lucy Allan and a reading from Luke Turner.

Two digital releases this week, with a brace of Confront recordings featuring contributions from the abstract, onkyo guitarist, Taku Sugimoto. Both Foldings and 10tet are pools of near silence – each breath, chair creak, string scrape, or restrained tone adding to a a subtly gradated palette. With no player forcing a narrative arc, there’s phenomenal patience to this approach, as each is instead willing to let things sit with quiet intention and reflection.

Hope to see you here.

Ahead of the Junko / Sugimoto double bill tonight, we’re pleased to have two Confront recordings with contributions from the abstract, onkyo guitarist, Taku Sugimoto. Both Foldings and 10tet are pools of near silence – each breath, chair creak, string scrape, or restrained tone adding to a a subtly gradated palette. With no player forcing a narrative arc, there’s phenomenal patience to this approach, as each is instead willing to let things sit with quiet intention and reflection.

Available as 320k MP3 or 24 bit FLAC
