at Cafe OTO

Cafe OTO

Amongst the shows over the next seven days, we’re very pleased to host O YAMA O – the duo of Rie Nakajima and Keiko Yamamoto – for a special performance featuring fragments of visuals / sculptural installations, and songs from their recently released debut album on Mana Records. Joining them will be Marie Roux, Billy Steiger and David Cunningham, who all worked on the album, plus a solo set from On Yee Lo.

This week we’ve published five of Danish composer, musician and artist Henning Christiansen‘s compositions over on the site – many of which have long been unpublished until Penultimate Press began working with Christiansen’s archive. Christiansen’s recorded output can be conservative, radical, beautiful, unsettling, discreet, random, charming and hilarious. The breadth of his musical work still has yet to be fully investigated, but given recent interest and increased access there is undoubtedly much more to come.

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

NEW ON OTOROKU:

EVAN PARKER –
THE SNAKE DECIDES

£15 / £13 members

One of the final Incus releases and one that was written up in The Penguin Guide to Jazz as ‘an essential document of modern music’. Otoroku is proud to release the first ever vinyl re-issue of Evan Parker’s legendary recording The Snake Decides. Featuring 4  solos recorded in 1986 in St. Paul’s Church, Oxford by the late Michael Gerzon. The Snake Decides is a groundbreaking example how far the language of a particular instrument can be taken.

From Brian Morton’s liner new notes:

“The Snake Decides attracts a certain array of adjectives – intense, radical, fearsome, hypnotic, virtuosic – and occasionally allows a more ambitious reviewer to avoid platitude by talking more specifically about 32nd harmonics, circular breathing, multiphonics and Gerson’s exact choice and placement of microphones. But this misses a point, too. Listening to this record, either for the first or the fortieth time, is an arousing experience.”
