Tre giorni di residenza artistica di Fred Frith al Cafe Oto a Londra: da oggi a domenica 31 maggio concerti in duo e trio con John Butcher, Theresa Wong, Tim Hodgkinson, Roger Turner, Lotte Anker e Hannah Marshall, con le immagini dal vivo curate da Heike Liss. Mancherà all'appello - per uno sventurato pasticcio organizzativo - Evan Parker, il cui duo con Frith era uno degli incontri più attesi dell'intero programma.

One of the most inventive and eclectic figures in contemporary music, guitarist and composer Fred Frith makes a welcome return to Cafe Oto for three days alongside a compelling line-up of musical improvisers, with many of whom he provided some incredible moments during his last residency here almost three years ago. “Few contemporary musicians have explored as many different – and frequently overlapping – genres as Fred Frith: traditional folk, indie rock, free improv, chamber composition, po-mo retro, graphic scores, and several… that may not have a name yet.” (Art Lange, Point of Departure).
