22–24 March 2019
Delighted to present a three-day residency curated by London-based, Welsh violinist, Angharad Davies, as a result of the OTO Projects UK Artists Residency Fund. A phenomenal improviser, Angaharad has also amassed a considerable body of work within the fields of composition and performance. Her approach to sound involves attentive listening and exploring beyond the sonic confines of her instrument, her classical training and performance expectation.
“Some say I “rush around too much”. This residency has given me a framework to think and rethink for much longer than I normally do. I’ve been exploring the close; the familiar; the dear; the abandoned; the slow; the local; the reconnect; the absent; the small; the quiet; the embodiment; the simplest; the longest; the sustainable. Thanks for helping me slow down.” – Angharad Davies
This residency is one of three at OTO for UK-based artists/groups at a vital point in their creative development, thanks to the support of Jerwood Charitable Foundation.
