Amongst the shows over the next seven days, the great Mike Cooper celebrates his 75th birthday with us in the company of an all star group of musical improvising friends; Pat Thomas, Orphy Robinson, Michael Thieke and Tim Hill.
This week’s digital release is the debut London performance for the duo of Limpe Fuchs and Evan Parker – two giants of avant garde music. Fuchs brings her unique menagerie of sounds to the space – variable wood and stone blocks (marble and serpentinite sourced from Sondrio in Upper Italy), ringing bronze pendulum strings and a variety of skin and bronze drums sound out alongside her own voice and a two toned harmonic violin. Parker’s intuitive finding of endings, of pauses and of ways to engage with Fuch’s personal rhythms is perfect – surely the beginning of a regular duo? We hope so.
New shows announced this week include a ebut solo show at OTO for New York composer, Peter Gordon, plus Richard Youngs performing his debut album – Advent – on Advent Sunday.
