Great to have musician, songwriter, composer, producer and Derek Jarman collaborator, Simon Fisher Turner back at OTO! Tonight he performs alongside London-based composer and turntablist, Shiva Feshareki.
“Simon Fisher Turner is an indelibly cool individual, having partied with Bowie at Haddon Hall, befriended Salvador Dali and Amanda Leer, scored Derek Jarman's films and fashioned a niche for himself playing a stream of sensitive Victorian men in 1970s television. His soundtracks, steeped in experimental collages of found and Foley sounds and teetering on the precipice of archive fever pitch, occupy an eternal bequest to create space rather than fill it” – The Quietus

Shiva Feshareki (b. 1987) is a London-based composer and turntablist working closely with the physicality of sound. With electronics, she focuses on sound-manipulation and sampling, as well as analogue and bespoke electrics that generate 'real' and pure sounds of electricity. With acoustics, she is concerned with the interaction of tone, orchestration, texture, movement and space. Since 2013, Shiva works mainly as a collaborative composer, and uses deep improvisation, explorations into different disciplines, or chance events, to create her collaborative teams. She also presents a show on NTS Radio titled NEW FORMS, which re-imagines music and sounds from any genre into a new form, using turntable manipulation. www.facebook.com/shivafeshareki
