At Cafe OTO


Hi thereTonight we welcome the one and only Phil Minton, alongside an incredible line-up featuring Roger Turner, Veryan Weston, John Butcher, Adrian Northover, John Edwards and Audrey Chen.

“In an age when everything appears irreparably phony, fabricated, badly acted out, half an hour of Phil Minton is sufficient to restore a measure of hope in the continuation of something that lives, moves relentlessly, fights. In its own way.” – Massimo Ricci, Touching Extremes

This week we’re pleased to share a free digital mix in the form of Sean McCann’s ‘The Game of Leaves Vol. 2‘. Sequel to Sean McCann’s heavy reggae/dancehall mix of 2020 which bedded the late Jean-Marie Massou’s cave recordings under the likes The Summertaires, Barrington Levy and Freddie McKay. Vol 2 marries Caetano Veloso’s sound poetry with the Jack Ruby Soundsystem, Horace Andy and The Wailers. Very much what we need to drag us into 2022 – thanks Sean.

We are currently looking to open discussions with a freelance booking agent to explore more opportunities for touring and live performances for OTO affiliated artists. For more information, please visit our website.Take care,Cafe OTO

Sequel to Sean McCann’s heavy reggae / dancehall mix of 2020 which bedded the late Jean-Marie Massou’s cave recordings under the likes The Summertaires, Barrington Levy and Freddie McKay. Vol 2 marries Caetano Veloso’s sound poetry with the Jack Ruby Soundsystem, Horace Andy and The Wailers. Very much what we need to drag us into 2022 – thanks Sean.

Sean McCann is a Los Angeles-based composer, sound artist, curator, and audio engineer. He concurrently operates Recital, a label dedicated to sound poetry, new music, and Fluxus archival recordings. In 2022 Recital will celebrate it’s 10 year anniversary – congrats to Sean and all the artists who make it such a special label.We should say that we initially wrote to Sean asking him to contribute to our festive mailout with a mix, and we were a little slow with the idea – Silk House shared a brilliant choral / sound poetry mix he made in December. Definitely worth checking out after this.
