We’re very pleased to announce pre-orders for Pat Thomas’s ‘The Elephant Clock of Al Jazari’ on our in-house OTOROKU label.
Recorded live at OTO in May 2015 and mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi, the LP comprises four typically genre-defying and sonically dexterous pieces from one of the UK’s most extraordinary pianists.
Criminally unheralded, Pat is a fearless and uncompromising player who – despite coming from a background of free improvisation and new music – can feel as close to the worlds of noise and experimental music.
To celebrate the LP’s release, we’re delighted to present a four-day residency curated by Pat and featuring a host of collaborators old and new, including Okkyung Lee, Scatter, Drum & Bass Survival Unit and a very special string-heavy edition of Black Top – Pat’s long-running series with Orphy Robinson.
The LP is now available to pre-order and will ship around the middle of July. We’ve also added a special bundle deal with the LP and four-day pass to Pat’s residency. Full detail below.
All the best.
