At Cafe OTO

Amongst the shows over the next seven days, we’re delighted to welcome saxophonist, band leader and composer, Shabaka Hutchings to OTO for a three day residency spanning the wide range of his constantly evolving creative output. Hutchings, is a key part of London’s community of younger jazz musicians as well as the city’s thriving improvised music scene. For Hutchings, composition is a chronicle of the zeitgeist inhabited by a composer; an exposition of his or her search for meaning and the structuring of experiences in aid of recognising this meaning when it appears.

This week’s digital release is a set from Brazilian composer-performer Manuel Lima, featuring a live re-working of his brilliant release on Editions Verde plus some plus new and gold material. Following randomly generated instructions dictated to him from a Python script, Lima fuses sound from Youtube videos, analogue synthesiser and cassette recorder, alongside English to Portuguese translation phrases to delightful effect.

New shows announced this week include a rare duo performance from multidisciplinary artist, Mark Fell and computational artist and theorist, Ernest Edmonds, plus Terre Thaemlitzmakes a welcome return to OTO for two nights spanning the extensive and eclectic range of a formidable creative output.

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

DIGITAL RELEASE:

MANUEL LIMA – 30.6.17

£6 (£5 Venue Members) /
Digital Members: Download with credits

Delighted to release Brazilian composer-performer Manuel Lima’s set from June this year. Features a live re-working of his brilliant release on Editions Verde (EV006: 36 English to Portuguese Lessons), plus some plus new and gold material. Lima works between language, sound & performance to make cocktail of confusion and absurd recontextualisation. Following randomly generated instructions dictated to him from a Python script, Lima fuses sound from Youtube videos, analogue synthesiser and cassette recorder, alongside English to Portuguese translation phrases to delightful effect. Synonymy slips, and simple translations evolve & mutate to the sound of Jorge Ben, baroque lute and submerged speech.

Available as 320k MP3 or 24 bit FLAC

NEW ON OTOROKU:

PAT THOMAS – THE ELEPHANT CLOCK OF AL JAZARI

£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.
