Proud to present three days celebrating the life and work of the hugely influential British-Austrian musician and record-label head, Peter Rehberg, whose shocking and untimely death last year left such a hole in so many of the extended communities relating to OTO's programme.

Whether through his groundbreaking solo work as Pita, his collaborations with Jim O'Rouke, Stephen O'Malley and more, the many incredible releases issued through his Mego label (later Editions Mego) or his archival work with Groupe de Recherches Musicales (GRM) - to name just a few of the projects he was involved in - Peter left an enormous legacy. Over the course of these three days, curated by Russell Haswell and OTO in liaison with his close family and friends, we'll be celebrating that legacy with packed line-up featuring many of Peter's friends and collaborators.

Klara Lewis

Klara Lewis is a critically acclaimed sound sculptress who has performed in clubs and art galleries around the world. Lewis builds her work from heavily manipulated samples and field recordings, creating a unique combination of the organic and the digital. Her debut album Ett was released by Editions Mego in 2014. Later the same year her Msuic EP was released by Swedish producer Peder Mannerfelt. She was named Emerging Artist of the Year by BBC 6 Music DJ Mary Anne Hobbs. Lewis is currently collaborating with Simon Fisher Turner and Rainier Lericolais on a series of live performances of their new soundtrack to Walter Ruttmann’s classic 1927 silent film Berlin: Die Sinfonie der Großstadt. She is also collaborating with To Rococo Rot member and raster-noton artist Robert Lippok. Lewis’ second album Too was released in 2016 on Editions Mego to great acclaim.

Nik Colk Void

Nik Colk Void is an electronic musician and artist with a vast reputation in experimental shapeshifting and collaboration. Void’s interests lie in the unconventional encounters with her tools, both analogue and digital, as a means of expression. Her key instruments are voice, guitar, and modular euro-rack systems engaging in a new language using extended technique and cut-up sampling through synthesis. As a result, the blends of her compositional tracks lean towards techno, club, experimental and noise.

UK based, Void has produced eight acclaimed studio albums with her musical groups Factory Floor (Gabriel Gurnsey & Dominic Butler), Carter Tutti Void (Chris Carter & Cosey Fanni Tutti) and NPVR with the late Peter Rehberg, releasing via Mute, DFA, Blast First, Editions Mego and Industrial.

Bruce Gilbert

Bruce Clifford Gilbert (born 18 May 1946) is an English musician. One of the founding members of the influential and experimental art-punk band Wire, Gilbert branched out into electronic music, performance art, music production, and DJing during the band's extended periods of inactivity. Gilbert left Wire in 2004 and has since been focusing on solo work and collaborations with visual artists and fellow experimental musicians.

Mark Fell

Mark Fell is a multidisciplinary artist based in Sheffield (UK). After studying experimental film and video art at Sheffield City Polytechnic he reverted to earlier interests in computational technology, music and synthetic sound. In 1998 he began a series of critically acclaimed record releases on labels including Mille Plateaux, Line, Editions Mego and Raster Noton. Fell is widely known for exploring the relationships between popular music styles, such as electronica and club musics, and typically academic approaches to computer-based composition with a particular emphasis on algorithmic and mathematical systems. Since his early electronic music pieces Fell’s practice has expanded to include moving image works, sound and light installation, choregoraphy, critical texts, curatorial projects and educational activites. He has worked with a number of artists including Yasunao Tone, Keith Fullerton Whitman, Okkyung Lee, Luke Fowler, Peter Gidal, John Chowning, Ernest Edmonds, Peter Rehberg, Oren Ambarchi and Carl Michael Von Hausswolff.

The diversity and importance of Fell's practice is reflected in the range and scale of international institutions that have presented his work which include - Hong Kong National Film archive, The Baltic (Gateshead), Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona, La Casa Encendida (Madrid), Laboral (XIxon), The Institute of Contemporary Art (London), Royal Festival Hall (London), The Serpentine (London), The Australian Centre For Moving Image, Artists Space (NYC), Issue Project Room (NYC), Corcoran (DC), Curtis R.Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (NY), Lampo/Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts (Chicago), Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie (Karlsruhe), Hanger Biccoca (Milan) and others. Fell's work is in the collection of the Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary (Vienna) and has as been recognised by ARS Electronica (Linz).

Jim O'Rourke

Jim O'Rourke (born January 18, 1969, Chicago, Illinois) is a Tokyo-based American musician, composer and record producer. He has released albums across varied genres, including singer-songwriter music, post-rock, ambient, noise music, and tape experiments. He was associated with the Chicago experimental and improv scene when in around 2000 he relocated to New York City, before moving to Japan, where he currently resides. O’Rourke is best known for his numerous solo and collaborative music projects, many of which are entirely instrumental, and for his tenure as a member of Sonic Youth from 1999 to 2005.

Ana Quiroga

Ana Quiroga is a London based music composer, producer and sound designer, working across arts, film, audiovisual, immersive and interactive media.

She has released music on Editions Mego and Other People. Formerly half of the duo LCC, they released two albums and an EP on eMego. Ana has also released music on Arboretum and QTZL under the alias of NWRMNTC.

With a prolific career performing live, she has played and also showcased her work at renowned venues and festivals such as Barbican London, Berlin Atonal, Sónar Barcelona and Hong Kong, MUTEK Montreal, Argentina and Mexico, Superblue London, Somerset House Studios, MIRA Festival, LEV, Espacio Fundacion Telefonica Lima, CCD Mexico and Corsica Studios.

As a regular collaborator with filmmaker Pedro Maia, they have released several audiovisual projects and toured around Europe together. In collaboration with digital artist CLON, Ana has been exploring the infinite capacities of surround and interactive sound for games, VR and XR projects. Recently, they have toured worldwide to present CLON's live video game META AV.

Concrete Fence

The pedigree of this collaboration should need little explanation. Luminaries of British electronic music spanning over two decades, Russell Haswell (Gescom, Haswell & Hecker) and Downwards label founder Karl O'Connor (Regis, Sandwell District, British Murder Boys) come together for a very special DJ set.
