At Cafe OTO

Amongst the shows over the next seven days, we host a matinee of Sun Dreaming – a new performance featuring New York based new age pioneer Laraaji and LA renaissance man Carlos Niño, two deep questing musicians who explore the outer reaches of ambient music. In this special extended set both musicians will perform solo as well as together in an intuitive flow of improvisation, song form and open-eared collaboration.

This week’s digital release is the second release in an on-going series from GUO – aka saxophone and guitar ‘duo’ Daniel Blumberg and Seymour Wright. Mutated recordings made with heavy distortion and extreme amplification are live processed and manipulated to create a sinister, metallic ricochet. Release includes an ekphrasis by Brady Corbet responding to the music. GUO will be playing in support of UP-TIGHT tomorrow night.

New shows announced this week incude Keith Tippett‘s The Rare Music Club – two nights specially curated by Tippett himself – and a new date for The Necks next March.

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

NEW ON OTOROKU:

KAN MIKAMI / JOHN EDWARDS / ALEX NEILSON – LIVE AT CAFE OTO (PRE-ORDER)

Japanese bluesman Kan Mikami is nothing less than an unalloyed force of nature. A skin-shredding blast of frozen wind from the poor, rural north of Japan that he calls home. In the late 1960s, like thousands of other Japanese young people Mikami made his way to Tokyo in search of a life different from that of his parents. Since then he has forcefully carved out a space for himself in the culture as a modernist poet, a raging folk singer, an author, a actor, an engaging TV personality, and one of Japan’s most uniquely powerful performers

NEW ON OTOROKU:

HAINO KEIJI / JOHN BUTCHER – LIGHT NEVER BRIGHT ENOUGH LP/CD (PRE-ORDER)

Keiji Haino: Vocal, Guitars, etc
John Butcher: Saxophones and Feedback

Keiji Haino, one of the foremost exponents of the Japanese avant-garde, always provides a masterclass in constantly shifting improvisation. John Butcher is a saxophonist of rare grace and power, who has expanded the vocabulary of the saxophone far beyond the conventions of jazz and other musics, to encompass a staggering range of multiphonics, overtones, percussive sounds, and electronic feedback.
