At Cafe OTO

Amongst the shows at OTO over the next seven days, we host percussionist and composer,Lino Capra Vaccina. For fans of the Italian avant-garde, few names inspire the loyalty and devotion offered to Capra Vaccina – a perfect emblem of the country’s extraordinary movement of musical Minimalism. He first gained note as a member of Aktuala, a project which laid the groundwork for a entire generation of practitioners following in their wake – creating a hybrid of rock, avant-garde, and ancient musics, while incorporating a diverse number of sonic traditions from across the globe

We’re slowly emerging from the fog of 2018, and have put together a bundle of new digital releases over on the site in anticipation of a couple of special shows from Edition Wandelweiser artists Jürg Frey and Marianne Schuppe this month. Swiss born Jürg Frey’s music is characterised by a gentle but unorthodox harmonic beauty and and has been widely celebrated in recent years at numerous festivals and performances. He’ll be performing work for cello alongside Anton Lukoszevieze, followed by some rarely performed scores which focus on the use of electronics and multiple speakers.

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