Cafe Oto, 18 – 22 Ashwin street, Dalston, London. E8 3DL
An evening of deep listening, featuring five works by composers in or around the Wandelweiser collective, performed by the 40-strong ensemble murmuration. All of the pieces in the programme leave the choice of sounds to the musicians, who will be dispersed throughout the Cafe, with no physical separation between players and audience. Organised by Simon Reynell with possibly the biggest ensemble to perform at Cafe Oto, comprising a group of c.40 players as part of the launch of the new Another Timbre boxed set Wandelweiser und so weiter. The programme comprised pieces by Wandelweiser composers Sam Sfirri, Michael Pisaro and Manfred Werder, together with a realisation of Cage’s Four6.
