THU 28 - SUN 31 AUGUST '14 • 6PM
An extended four-day residency in the OTO Project Space from this new quartet. Steve Noble is London's leading drummer, a fearless and constantly inventive improviser. Guillaume Viltard is one of the most interesting musicians to emerge from London's fertile improvised and experimental scene in the last few years. Seymour Wright is '[a] very radical saxophonist'(Evan Parker). Trombonist Ian Maclachlan has collaborated with poet Graham Hartill and Dutch poet Johan De Wit over the years.
SUN 24 AUGUST '14
A great line-up of genre-defying modular constructions and enveloping sonic scree. US experimental/noise musician Robert Turman brings a disorientating morass of electronic textures that deftly weave between ambience and abstraction whilst losing none of the bite and menace that has seen him collaborate with the likes of Aaron Dilloway. Cam Deas returns to OTO with new LP, String Studies, that focuses on turning the 12 string acoustic guitar on its head by using it as the sole sound source for a densely constructed kind of real-time musique concrete. Also on the bill are double drum and synth modulator duo To/To (aka Tobias Kirstein and Toke Tietze) who go for the jugular with a constantly mutating rhythmic burst of bludgeoning energy. Plus DJ sets from Cejero records, who recently put out LPs from both Turman and To/To.
