Where to Now? return to OTO with a stacked line-up featuring U, Dale Cornish, Ben Vince and rkss, plus Rachael Finney aka R.Elizabeth providing interventions between acts.
Where to Now? is a London/Brighton based record label that has been releasing music since 2011. It has been a home to music from Beatrice Dillon, Tom James Scott, Helm, Jesse Osborne-Lanthier, and many others. It seeks to straddle and blur the lines between couch-listening head sounds and club focused body music.
Born, raised and current of London (south). Solo releases include a number of albums for Entr'acte, most recently Ulex. Forthcoming releases include the Clap 12" for Where To Now? and a collaboration with Powell for his forthcoming album on XL.
rkss is an alias of Robin Buckley, a London based sound artist. They hold German and UK passports. Their releases on Where To Now?, Seagrave and Reject & Fade have explored the materiality of film sound, YouTube and EDM sample packs through the lens of house, techno and computer music.
Robin Buckley also runs a radio series for Resonance Extra called Lossless Communication, which explores sound discovery in the internet era. Other recent work includes a live improvised performance with Claire Tolan and sound design for the art website www.clubdead.io.
Ben Vince makes music purely with the saxophone, creating a collage of melodies, textures and rhythms, twisted and pitched, expanding the sound palette whilst stretching the formula with improvised live sets that incorporate electronica and occasional percussionists.
Since surfacing with his second album and debut vinyl, ‘Monuments’, in April 2017 on Blank Editions (responsible for recent output of Thurston Moore, Tomaga & Housewives), Vince continues with a restless live schedule, playing solo as well as in live projects with Housewives, Data Quack (with Charles Hayward), Coby Sey, Mollusc and Rupert Clervaux.
In 2018, he will perform at Rewire Festival and other select events. Acts he has supported solo include William Basinski, Silver Apples, Pharmakon, Visible Cloaks and Keiji Haino & Charles Hayward
R Elizabeth is the side project of London based artist Rachael Finney. Although connected to her studio practice R Elizabeth sees the artist exploring her interest in magnetic tape and voice from a different point of entry. Working somewhere between experimental electronics and pop music R Elizabeth often creates melodic hooks via a combination of tape collage and repetitive organ, layering low placed vocals that aim to present a continuous chorus.
Previous releases include ‘Mirror’ on Cazenove and last year saw the release of ‘Season on Error’ onWhere To Now? 2017 will bring a new album out on Home Normal.
