Cafe Oto Associated Artists Programme announced

In March this year Cafe Oto founder Hamish Dunbar was awarded £25,000 via the Genesis Prize. That money went into an Associated Artists Programme, announced this week. Oto have selected five UK musicians to work with over the next 12 months, developing collaborations and projects, plus providing the facilities for them to present new work. The inaugural associated artists are violinist Angharad Davies, sound artist Rie Nakajima, composer and improvisors Tom James Scott and Alex Ward, plus double bass player Guillaume Viltard.
