At Cafe OTO

Hi there

Amongst the shows over the next seven days, we have the first duo performance at OTO for crys cole and Oren Ambarchi following the release of their second collaborative album, Hotel Record, on Ambarchi’s own Black Truffle imprint.

In anticipation of the Norwegian bass player Michael Duch’s return to OTO as part of the +3DB night this evening, we’re happy to release two brilliant live recordings from Confront – each featuring Duch as one half of a duo and documenting two very different approaches to his instrument. Paired with John Butcher, Duch anchors the sax players wild reed technique with full, drawling bass, and alongside Joelle Leandre he makes, quick technical shifts to explore the double bass’ timbral possibilities.

New shows announced this week include a two-day residency with  legendary bassist, songwriter and Minutemen founder, Mike Watt, plus a welcome return for Lydia Lunch. Also, pleased to say that tickets are now back on sale for the Sun Ra Arkestra residency in the autumn.

Full listings and all new shows below. We look forward to seeing you here.

PAT THOMAS – THE ELEPHANT CLOCK OF AL JAZARI

PRE-ORDER LP – £15 (£13 members)

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.
