At Cafe OTO

Amongst the shows over the next seven days, we’re very excited to host a first time collaboration between Moor Mother (aka musician and poet, Camae Ayewa) and pianist Pat Thomas – who recently came together to stunning effect for Ayewa’s sold out Irreversible Entanglements show at OTO in April – alongside experimental vocalist and movement artist, Elaine Mitchener.

This week’s digital release is a pair of solo sets from two of the most individual voices exploring new forms of percussion; Paul Abbott & Jake Meginsky. Both artists transgress the boundaries between acoustic and electronic, analog and digital, and find themselves in a curious midway between various forms of radical music – free-jazz, footwork, and music concrete.

New announcements this week include shows for Japanese sound artist Takahiro Kawaguchi, and and Ghanaian kologo musician, King Ayisoba.

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

OTO RECOMMENDS:

The Birth of Electronic Music (Stockhausen ‘Kontakte’ / Kagel / Cage)
Sunday 24 June, 3.00pm
St John’s Smith Square

In 1960, before The Beatles had yet toured and with 78s still in the charts, three composers were already laying the groundwork for decades of music to follow. George Barton and Siwan Rhys (Piano/Percussion) perform three iconic pieces, which are examples of the first music to combine electronic and sound-processing technology with live performance to produce other-worldly soundscapes.
