Volge al termine il tour di concerti in Scozia e Inghilterra del trio Konk Pack - Thomas Lehn, Roger Turner, Tim Hodgkinson - dopo un'assenza di oltre sei anni: la tappa di domani è a Londra, al Cafe Oto.

Konk Pack brings together three major figures in contemporary music. This is their first UK tour for six years. The group has amazed audiences at festivals and concerts all over the world with the sheer energy of its rapid fire interplay, earning numerous critical accolades. This is a band that stretches free improvisation, opening out an architecture in which shifting space and detail of sound can volcanically explode into zones of accelerated high volume electronica & sonic detritus. Since 1997, Konk Pack have toured regularly throughout Europe, completed three major tours of the US, and been described by The Wire magazine's Lee Henderson as "one of the most exciting improv groups in the world." Along the way, they've done a live broadcast for BBC's Mixing It, and a sold-out London concert with Derek Bailey. The group have released four CDs on the German label Grob, and performed at major music festivals from Vancouver to Belgrade.The musics they've made individually are reason enough to take note of this trio, but the music they make together leaves audiences amazed and inspired.
