Forthcoming Sunday at the Oto


“poetry and music with the post-avant crowd for your Sunday afternoon pleasure”

Third Sunday of the month, 3-5 pm, Café Oto, 18-22 Ashwin Street, Dalston, London E8 3DL £4 entry.

February 15: Sarah Jacobs with Imogen Smith & Alex Walker + Richard Makin (art & language) + Dawn Scarfe & Mel Gough (music)

Art, language & music coming together. Sarah Jacobs is a sculptor making objects, performance, installation, books on paper, and books in electronic form. Her electronic piece Deciphering Human Chromosome 16: We Report Here uses text in a visual way to document the ethical, economic, political and philosophical polemics associated with mapping the human genome, and their changes through time. Richard Makin is a writer of fiction and poetry and a visual artist. Experience his language as a complex and haunting landscape to drift across. Carillon is an experimental sound performance by artists Dawn Scarfe and Mel Gough. Guitars are tuned to resonant nodes in cymbals to produce a rich bell-like sound. The aim is to investigate accents and textures within the spectrum of resonant sound in immersive and meditative live exploration. Expect from this afternoon completely new stances on language, music and performance!

March 15: Paul Taylor's Trombone Poetry (music + words) + Uru-Ana (music + words) + Mike Weller (words +)

April 19: Abi Oborne + Holly Pester + James Wilkes (words +)
