We are very pleased to have the legendary Peter Hammill play at Cafe Oto and have had this exquisited limited poster (100 copies) made up to celebrate.
From original listing:
A very special three-day residency from the utterly distinctive and ceaselessly inventive songwriter and Van Der Graaf Generator founder, Peter Hammill.
Making a mockery of genre boundaries and consistently confounding expectations, Hammill's work spans numerous styles and approaches whilst always maintaining his own unique sound. Now, nearly five decades on from the debut VDGG release, Hammill's creative spark shows no sign of abating and we're very excited to host him performing solo across three nights at OTO.

A3 risograph print for Cüneyt Sepetçi's show at OTO on 6 April 2016.
Printed in blue and crimson on 170gsm lynx paper by Ditto Press. Edition of 30.
From the listing...
“In Istanbul, close to the city center, lies a district not often visited by tourists. It’s called Dolapdere, and it is populated by the Roma of the city, many of whom are originally from Thrace. They supply the music for the city’s weddings, circumsicions, parades and parties.
Dolapdere is the home of clarinet virtouso Cüneyt Sepetçi and the Orchestra Dolapdere, who are some of the great musicians of Istanbul. They specialize in a modern take on classic Turkish Rom (gypsy) music, as well as folk songs from Albania, Macedonia, Spain, and elsewhere, that they have adapted to their own inimitable style.
On days when Cüneyt is not working, you can find him in the cafe, drinking chai, and waiting for the highest bidder to hire him for the night’s concert. In the summer of 2012, he met American musicians A Hawk and A Hacksaw, who agreed to get the under-recorded master into a studio and release his first album. Cuneyt has chosen all the tracks, many are hits from the Turkish Roma repetoire, but many have not been heard much in the West.”

From the original listing...
”Three-day residency curated by Sheffield-based multidisciplinary artist, Mark Fell, spanning distinctive approaches to sound, philosophy, plus a special reading room installation from Fell in the OTO Project Space. Mark Fell's work – ranging from minimal electronic music, to sound installations and audio-visual works – has placed him at the forefront of a rapidly expanding area of extreme and independent computer music and his explorations are never less than fascinating. We'll be hiring in an extra PA for all three nights of the residency!”

Trzaska is one of the most important figures in the Polish jazz scene in the broadest sense.
One of the creators of the revolutionary Polish form of jazz called 'Yass', he has been working with Wojciech Smarzowski for many years. His soundtracks have received exceptional recognition, both from fans and from music critics alike. Trzaska has also created music for a number of documentaries, including Iwona Bartólewska’s A Letter to My Son.”
