Wild Pop, 12-string Australiana, and Casio apocalypse as British label Slip take the reins once more at OTO.
Yeah You is your reality captured as it unfolds, welcome kings; an audience has all and no freedom, the artists are held in the same paradox inverted, you watch them but you notice how you watch the narrative they watch. You see the format we all melt into under this dynamic reflect upon itself. If they achieve what they want you will dance to the beat of a sickness previously unperceivable. You will regret this for the rest of your life. The intensity of life articulated, becomes your entertainment, dead gods of the earth, humans made to feel like manipulators, estranged by their social definition, please be quite the musicians play GENERIC EXPERIMENTAL POP WITH THE CATCH THAT IT IS FATHER AND DAUGHTER. Gather not just for music but also like curious psychologists examining an equation not socially induced, this was not selected from previously existing possible options, WHATS NOT TO WATCH THIS IS WAR.
Inhumanity has breached the family circle, the evil of the nuclear family.
‘NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO’ said the son to the father son father.
Precocious Australian guitarist Julia Reidy is an improviser, performer, and composer. Active both in Sydney, and in Berlin, where she is currently based, she has played and studied with many of free improvisation’s finest - namely Jon Rose, Richard Scott, Anthony Pateras, and the Neck’s Tony Buck. Tonight she makes her OTO debut with a solo 12-string set taking its cue from recent record ‘All Is Ablaze’, released through her own Opalmine imprint, ahead of new material for Slip in September.
Composer Matt Rogers graced Slip with one of the more eccentric releases in their recent batch. 'SK√1' - a suite of solo scorchers belched straight out of the jack of a GravesEnd Casio SK1 - is presented live for the first time tonight, in a special duo version with percussionist Chris Vatalaro. Matt has won the Paul Hamlyn Foundation Award for Composers; held residencies at London’s Southbank Centre and at Tokyo’s Wonder Site; and produced large scale works for the Royal Opera House, Aldeburgh Music, and the New York Metropolitan Museum Of Art.
