Saturday 24 September 2016, 12pm
12noon – 1am in the Cafe and Project Space.
An all-day festival celebrating international-local arts, winding them into an expanding wormhole of likeminded sub-scenes, a dialogue suspended above the transnational abyss. One headspace for 12 hours conducted in two cities, although not at the same time.
On Saturday 24th September 2016, Cafe OTO hosts the latest instalment of Hyperlocal, a celebration of music and art connecting subaltern scenes, initially with a primary focus on the UK and Argentina. Los Cripis, WVS and 3MPTY SPACE are over from Buenos Aires, to play alongside DJ Woman as a Phallic Symbol, Whitby Bay, Chloe Frieda (NTS), Vindicatrix, Patchfinder, Time is Away DJS (NTS), BAS JAN, Terriblis; the Berlin-based Japanese industrial duo Group A and new Merge signing SNEAKS from the USA.
Readings and screenings complete an enthralling bill, with its mind set on openness, diversity and collaboration. More acts will be announced through September.

DJ WOMAN AS A PHALLIC SYMBOL (A/V Performance)
SECRET GUEST DJ
Chloe Frieda runs the Alien Jams record label and an NTS radio show of the same name. Operating since 2014 the label has released artists including Karen Gwyer, Beatrice Dillon, rkss and Design a Wave. Chloe’s DJ sets typically encompass bizarre electronics, industrial-tinged techno and minimal synth oddities.
(A/V performance at HUB 16) Ruth Angel Edwards received a BA in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins in London (UK) and currently lives and works in London. Music, the body, sex, and politics are themes that she mixes and mashes in order to create images and videos that are tense and complicating. The female body (and how it is packaged in culture) is examined through repetitions that reveal the queasiness of it all. And yet her works are far from being a hit-you-over-your-head investigation; they seek to seduce rather than convince. To approach the sexualized gaze is a difficult task, yet Edwards accomplishes it with raw intellect and uncompromising vision. Her work has been exhibited in the UK and internationally at institutions including Tate Modern, London; Human Resources, LA; Royal Standard, Liverpool; Arcadia Missa, London; Auto Italia South East, London; MEYOHAS Gallery, New York, and the Plymouth Arts Centre.
BATERIA: MARTA Z GUITARRA Y VOZ: PAZ M GRABACIÓN Y MEZCLA: NICOLAS B/ SANTA RITA RECORDS
Bass, violin drums and singing. Their songs to date are written by Serafina Steer and indeed, they were going to be a new serafina steer album until Sarah and Jenny's full powers triangulated the whole collaboration and BAS JAN was born.
strong and stable electronics of austery-death
Adriel David (Metal Mothers/Pure Shit/Dronevil) from Buenos Aires A/V dense drone ambient project.
Where the macabre crooning of Scott Walker meets the cavernous bass of early dubstep and fragmented rnb. (eavi Goldsmiths)
Cafe OTO debut for this dark, biting club & drone wrenching producer & DJ.
Terribilis is a resident of London's XQUISITE NIHIL collective & a co-founder of feminist dance music movement UNITI.
Sneaks all about pithy punk poetry—incantations condensed into tracks that never make it to the two-minute mark, minimally underscored by bass lines and not much else. With a sometimes monotonous, sometimes self-amused vocal delivery and clean melodic bass lines, Sneaks sometimes feels like a one-person Household, sometimes like an early draft of a Le Tigre song. (Nina Mashurova)
Experimental producer, whose industrial, climactic sounds are layered over keyboard works. The London producer, credited for her ability to avoid easy categorisation, creates tracks which straddle the borders of genre thanks to her hypnotic vocals and distorted bass. (Ruby Hutson-Gray)
Irish writer based in London. Her work has been published widely online and in print including The Guardian and i-D. She has read and performed in a variety of settings including "Disobedient Children" curated by the artist Dorine van Meel at Kunstraum, Hoxton, and in the Irish Museum of Modern Art at a live recording of the curator Morgan Quaintance's radio show STUDIO VISIT. She is currently writing her first novel. She tweets @mmegannnolan
The sound of Los Cripis is simple and primitive, no pedals or effects. Full of melodies and dissonance.
Time Is Away and somewhere else every month on NTS. Each hour-long show uses music, alongside snippets of spoken word, to produce something that is part soundscape, part essay for the radio.
Japanese avant-garde synth wave duo group A was formed in 2012 by Tommi Tokyo (synthesizers, vocals, percussion) and Sayaka Botanic (violin, cassette tapes). Their early shows came as a shock to most spectators, non-stop waves of experimental noise, intensely emotional poetry readings and nude live-paintings.
