Cafe Oto and Norway's Ny Musikk curate events series

Oto Projects and the Norwegian contemporary music organisation Ny Musikk (new home to The Wire's recently departed, but still contributing Anne Hilde Neset) are starting a series of events at Cafe Oto to bring Norwegian acts to play and collaborate in London.

The series so far includes the first UK performance collaboration between Supersilent founder Helge Sten and Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones in their guise as Minibus Pimps, plus Steve Noble and Sebastian Lexer (13 July). Also lined up to play in the series are Stian Westerhus (14 October), Jazkamer collaborating with Greg Pope (8 November), Jenny Hval & Håvard Volden's project Nude On Sand (date tba), with more to be announced in the coming months.
