At Cafe OTO

Cafe OTO

Hi there

Amongst the shows over the next seven days, the duo of New Zealand-born, Berlin-based producer Ollie Peryman a.k.a. FIS, and New Zealand-based musician and anthropologist Rob Thorne perform together at OTO for the first time ahead of their debut album release on Subtext this summer. The two artists share a broad theoretical and critical background and both teach or have taught about indigenous musical traditions. They apply their own practices to the reimagining of indigenous musical traditions and the bridging of a gap between long-established and experimental approaches.

This week’s digitial release is a subtle, slight and spooky set from Realistic Monk – the new duo of ex-CalArts electronic composer Carl Stone and minimalist musician Miki Yui. Less cut and glitched than Stone’s solo work, Realistic Monk’s sound seems to hardly be moving at first, only to shift underfoot and reveal delicate oscillations and MSP mappings. In time, narrative builds in ways similar to that of James Rushford and crys cole, and eerie vocal lines akin to a nomadic Ghedalia Tazartes loop and shudder in the periphery.

Hope to see you here.

OTO RECOMMENDS:

LUCA NASCIUTI – KISHAR

“Kishar is a journey through the noise of nature. The rural areas recorded across Scotland and Iceland have been processed and manipulated to reflect on the relationship between the land and human history in light of the current environmental and political debate. The instability and ever changing states of the environment have been placed in the context of enduring noise. Disruption, eruption, energy and resistance are the driving forces that shape the album as a search for balance between opposites poles.”
