At Cafe OTO

Amongst the shows over the next seven days, LUX present a special screening and UK debut of ‘The Mechanics of Dissonance‘ – the new film by artists Luke Fowler and Richard McMaster which recently premiered at Mark Fell’s Geometry of Now festival in Moscow. Mark Fell will also provide quadrophonic sound accompaniment for a London debut screening of Peter Gidal’s film, ‘Volcano‘.

This week’s digital release is a barnstorming set from Dale Cornish and Phil Julian. 14.2.16 marks the first live outing of much new material from these two excellent human beings – and it also marks possibly the only time we’ve seen proper heckling in OTO’s usually library quiet atmosphere. “It’s not Whitehouse definitely!” someone yells, but what is? We can’t repeat Dale’s real retort – you’ll have to download the whole thing for that, but we can say it often sounds like a landscape of embarrassing human phrasing dug up by Dale and slung back at the audience, to be consumed while Phil’s bass line slowly shifts out of sync beneath them. “Language is a nuisance” goes one of their ‘songs’, and they’re right, but if we’re going to keen on using it lets please put Dale Cornish in charge of the dictionary.

Hope to see you here.
