Oto Projects programme – MUSICS AND OTHER LIVING CREATURES

Wednesday 28 August | 7:30 pm – 11:00 pm

Café Oto, London | Directions

Tickets £6/£10

With the help of guest writers, musicians and sculptors – Daniela Cascella, Yifeat Ziv, Lia Sui and Josie Sparrow –  David Toop will perform and revisit his first radio programme, broadcast as Crossthreads on BBC Radio 3 on the 29 May 1972. Using a variant on the Sharpen Your Needles format of playing ethnographic recordings (devised with Evan Parker) he will introduce a bioacoustic version called Sharpen Your Claws, working with the original mix of BBC archive recordings, which documented the web of musical interconnections between non-human, human and extra-human entities. He will talk about and play ‘instruments’ exploring ecologies of cultural exchange and cohabitation that reject anthropocentrism and speciesism.

Music and Other Living Creatures is a series at Cafe OTO (curated by OTO Projects) dedicated to music about, with, or by other living creatures. Birds, tigers, chickens, insects and many other living creatures are explored through sound-walks, listening sessions, commissioned performances, live responses and discussions.
