Shelley Hirsch e Joke Lanz presero parte nel 2015 all'edizione londinese del festival di arti varie Next, con sede a Bratislava, con una briosa performance presso il Cafe Oto. Era l'11 novembre, e in cartellone c'erano anche Rashad Becker, Jonas Gruska e Urbanfailure. La registrazione è ora disponibile come file audio nella sezione Otoroku del club con il titolo 11.11.15. Peter Urpeth ha ulteriormente documentato l'evento pubblicando alcuni estratti video e una bella intervista a Shelley tenuta quella sera: è il quarto episodio della sua serie The Free Improv Pod.

New York improvising vocalist, composer, and performance artist Shelley Hirsch met the Swiss turntables and electronic musician Joke Lanz (Sudden Infant) at a festival in Biel, Switzerland, where they were both performing solo. Shelley was struck by his performance and Joke admitted that he has “loved her work since the early ’80s.” Booked to play Oto as part of Next festival, the pair explored consciousness, both immediate and memory based, and drew on personal experience to create a three act improvisation which reinterprets the strange and the known.
