[Dear Anne] "We imagine a room - OTO - which we move around (with sounds) in which we are planting bulbs, sprouts/roots, seeds, graftings/clippings (but these plants are sounds and movements), which grow and evolve organically, but can repeat mechanically. Many births!"
Anne Gillis and XT (Paul Abbott and Seymour Wright) have developed a new work remotely, together. Responding to the invitation above - recorded and assembled - in three locations: Paris (Anne), Brussels (Paul) and London (Seymour).
It will be played - premiered - inside cafe OTO. Following this live 'broadcast', the recording will be available to listen to for free online, for one week between 2 - 9 June.
Alongside the sounds, XT's 'reading room' will open - a selection of texts to accompany their imminent OTOroku LP Deorlaf X.
The collaboration between Anne GIllis and XT has been generously supported by Diaphonique.
