Calling Out Of Context is a festival of experimental musicand sound that fills the ICA for nine days in November. One of the ICA’s Galleries is being used as a performance space, while the other features a recording studio, and the Theatre is hosting gigs, workshops and discussions. The programme across these spaces includes an incredible range of musicians and artists, revealing the vitality and relevance of the sonic avant-garde. Calling Out Of Context features over forty performers and groups, including both emerging figures and well-known names. Many of the participants cross the boundaries between different musical traditions, and the festival (which takes its title from a song by the American underground musician Arthur Russell) draws on the explosively experimental ethos of the 60s and 70s. The programme includes performances by The Red Krayola, Gravetemple, Aaron Dilloway, Seb Rochford, Mira Calix, Rhys Chatham, 9!, James Beckett, AGF and Lucky Dragons, as well as new sound works by Jan St Werner and Robin Watkins, and recording sessions from About, Mica Levi, Alexander Tucker and Woebot. It concludes with a weekend of events dedicated to the British avant-garde musician and activist Cornelius Cardew, featuring contributions from John Tilbury and Ultra-red, amongst others.
