The Vortex & Cafe OTO celebrate Evan Parker's 70th. 21, 23, 25 Oct at The Vortex
This monthʼs Mopomoso programme of free improvised music features
musicianʼs from Japan, Belgium, France and the UK in three contrasting and
inspiring trios. Run entirely by volunteers Mopomoso plays host to the UKʼs longest
running concert series dedicated to free improvisation.
Yoko Miura (piano) / Jean Michel van Shouwburg (voice) / Lawrence Casserley (electronics) trio
Tokyo based Yoko Miura plays a music of poise and elegance that reflects
her feelings on the natural world. With live sound manipulations from the ever
attentive (and inventive) Casserley, the whole is annotated by the vocal
pyrotechnics of van Schouwburg. A welcome return for three fine musicians
who perform for the first time at Mopomoso as a trio.
Anthony Donovan (electric bass,electronics) / Matt Chilton (electronics) / Nuora Sanatian (violin) trio
Following on from a short and delightful spot at the Mopomoso Christmas
party last year, and after some diary juggling, we are delighted to finally
announce the return of this excellent group. With the acoustic ʻpurityʼ of the
violin and the low resonances of the bass guitar effortlessly framed by the
subtle use of electronics they create a very personal sonic universe for us to
Guylaine Cosseron (voice) / Phil Minton (voice) / John Russell (guitar) trio
Making a return visit to Mopomoso, this trio takes the human voice to quite
remarkable levels of expression. Interweaving all manner of vocal sounds
with the steel string sonorities of the guitar to great effect. Theres is an
engaging and all encompassing music that draws the listener into a very
human and deeply rewarding listening experience.
