At Cafe OTO

Hi there

Amongst the shows over the next seven days, we host the debut London performance for the duo of Limpe Fuchs and Evan Parker – two giants of avant garde music. Support comes from the duo of Andie Brown (These Feathers Have Plumes) and Kelly Jones of Part Wild Horses Mane on Both Sides.

This week’s digital release is a set from sound artist, Matthew Sulivan. A percussive motif threads together obscured narratives and Sullivan creates totally new landscapes from his field recordings and their manipulation. Whilst some of the sounds are recognisable, the position you hear them from is frighteningly isolated – a gong becomes as eerie as office lighting static, and a demonic football crowd celebrates your exit. One of our standout shows from this year for sure.

Hope to see you here.

After last summer’s release of the exceptional Skene on Sean McCann’s Recital Program, it’s a pleasure to share Matthew Sullivan’s set from March this year. A percussive motif threads together obscured narratives and Sullivan creates totally new landscapes from his field recordings and their manipulation. Whilst some of the sounds are recognisable, the position you hear them from is frighteningly isolated – a gong becomes as eerie as office lighting static, and a demonic football crowd celebrates your exit. One of our standout shows from this year for sure.
