11 events happening between June and November investigate music for non-human beings
Curated by OTO Projects, Music and Other Living Creatures is a new series at Cafe OTO running on various dates between 23 June and 5 December. It's dedicated to “music about, with, or by other living creatures”. That's birds, tigers, chickens, insects and more explored through a variety of methods from sound-walks and commissioned performances to live responses and discussions.
Events include Evan Parker with birds (Evan Parker / John Coxon / Ashley Wales / Mark Sanders) + Seymour Wright performs Anthony Braxton's Dog on 26 July; a night hosted by David Toop titled Other Creatures, Entities and Faint Beings on 28 August; Animal Music featuring Lara Cory, Tobias Fischer and others on 12 September; Mark Harwood of Penultimate Press presenting Henning Christiansen's work Symphonie Natura – a collage of electronic drones and animal sounds recorded at the Zoo in Rome in 1985; and Apartment House Play Animals. With 11 events in total, full programme can be found on the the Cafe Oto website.
