At Cafe OTO

Amongst the shows over the next seven days, we have the UK debut performance of the brand new duo of UK multidisciplinary artist Mark Fell and Australian drummer / percussionist Will Guthrie, with support from Swedish composer and sound-artist, Ellen Arkbro.

This week’s digital release is a strikingly sparse and meditative percussive duo set from esteemed vocalist Julie Tippetts and Confront boss man, Mark Wastell. Both equipped with a wealth of percussion but perfectly restrained, the pair are near-still, bright and clear at first, until the surface of their glistening sound begins to prickle and rush with an unseen current.

Hope to see you here.

Digital Members: Download with credits

Strikingly sparse and meditative percussive duo from esteemed vocalist Julie Tippetts and Confront boss man, Mark Wastell. Both equipped with a wealth of percussion but perfectly restrained, the pair are near-still, bright and clear at first, until the surface of their glistening sound begins to prickle and rush with an unseen current. Tippett’s voice effortlessly matches the bellows of the Wastell’s shruti box, and its gentle drone highlights her natural vocal warmth. Intimate, explorative and intuitive, each note struck or sung is turned over gently, explored, and put back down to rest – like a rare find in a rock pool. We hope to see this duo make a return to OTO soon!
