Cafe OTO

Hi there

Amongst the shows over the next seven days, we host [Modern Ritual] II – the second in a series of new performance events exploring ideas of ritual through music and words. [MRII] Features solo sets from Rhodri Davies – harp, percussionist Pete Flood and automatist/live performer Sarah Angliss. Plus duo collaborations between Laura Cannell & Rhodri Davies, Sarah Angliss & Caroline Radcliffe, and a brand new spoken word piece between Luke Turner & Jennifer Lucy Allan.

To coincide with the show, this week’s digital release is a beguiling set from Laura Cannell. Metaphoric, historical but also just as easily enjoyed without any context at all, Laura Cannell’s approach to fiddle and recorder has echoes of medieval tradition with a folk vernacular.

New shows announced this week include Dikeman / Parker / Govaert trio and Sly & The Family Drone with Dead Neanderthals.

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.
