Wednesday 10 May 2023, 7pm, OTO Project Space
Excited to throw open the doors of the OTO Project Space to the public for a first show here since 2020! This stacked line-up brings together Project Space regulars for an evening of weird things, nice things and other things.
Please BYOB as there is no bar. Toilets are accesible through Cafe OTO. There is a wheelchair ramp to the Project Space.
Luciano Maggiore is a Palermo-born, London-based musician whose work is characterised by the use of speakers and analogue/digital devices (samplers, CD players, Walkmans, tape recorders) and which addresses the performativity of the musical act, the perception of it, and the obscurity that emanates from it. His interests include mechanisms of sound diffusion, performance, repetition, endurance, non-human animal languages, dance and folklore. With Louie Rice, he started NO-PA/PA-ON, a project that deals with performing score-based works, both acoustic and amplified.
Rory Salter is a musician and artist living in London. He has released albums under various projects with Alter, TakuRoku, Infant Tree, Teeth, MAL, Bison, Kashual Plastik and more. His music is formed through experimentations with acoustic & electronic instruments, faulty technologies, cassette tape, feedback and voice; motivated by a relationship to changing and chaotic environments, objects and scores made from walking.
Ash and Jackson have been collaborating together for over 10 years, working with scores, text pieces and action based performances that address class and gender in relation to where they grew up. Recent performances have included Cafe OTO, The Fruit Market and Hundred Years Gallery.
Regan Bowering is a percussionist, improviser and sound artist based in London. Her solo work explores various combinations of objects and materials, drums and percussion, amps, speakers, and feedback. Collaborative projects include BLAKE/ SONG/ BOWERING, a trio with Li Song and Conal Blake who experiment with site-specific performance/ improvisations using snare drums, speakers, and found materials. She’s currently doing a practice-based PhD in Music at Goldsmiths, Uni of London.
Zara Joan Miller is a British/Iranian artist and author of poetry collection BLUE MONDAY (JOAN Publishing, 2022). She works across film, performance and print – often playing with movement and sound as a way of reimagining a body’s rhythm. Her work has recently been presented at the Barbican Centre, Horse Hospital, No.9 Cork St., Ann Arbor Film Festival, Lausanne Underground Film Festival and has appeared in Fieldnotes journal, Hotel, MAP, Another Gaze and Worms Magazine. Zara has a record with Ute Kanngießer forthcoming on Reading Group.
