These artists come from various European cities and much of the interaction between them takes place over the internet through Skype, email, social networking, and video-file sharing.

SARU & Compost and Height present an evening of music of Michael Pisaro and Makiko Nishikaze

The Roundchapel Auditorium, Powerscroft Road, London, E5 0PU.

SARU & Compost and Height present an evening of the music of Michael Pisaro and Makiko Nishikaze.

American composer Michael Pisaro's July Mountain is a translation of the Wallace Stevens poem, July Mountain, into sound. It is a dense combination of strictly timed, crossfaded field recordings, sourced on this occasion from areas around the UK, and a slew of percussion sounds, such as bowed snare drums and the bowing of a prepared vibraphone. Ricefall, another piece by Pisaro, like July Mountain, was originally written for the percussionist Greg Stuart and realised in the studio with a great many overdubs. Its performance at Cafe Oto will consist of 16 performers positioned around the venue, each adhering to a series of timings, whilst letting fall constant streams of rice onto a series of different objects.

Pianist Tim Parkinson will also be performing, on piano, works by Japanese composer, Makiko Nishikaze.

Participating in this event will be:

Daniel Bennett , Seth Cooke, Stephen Cornford, Dimitra Lazaridou-Chatzigoga, Angharad Davies, Jane Dickson, Patrick Farmer, Lawrence Dunn, Bruno Guastalla, Jack Harris, Sarah Hughes, Kostis Kilymis, Dominic Lash, Will Montgomery, Tim Parkinson, Samuel Rodgers, David Stent, Greg Stuart, and Paul Whitty.

Extremely Bad Dancing to Extremely French Music by Karl Jay Lewin and Matteo Fargion

Extremely Bad Dancing to Extremely French Music by Karl Jay Lewin and Matteo Fargion

Extremely Bad Dancing to Extremely French Music is a new collaborative live dance and music work by choreographer Karl Jay-Lewin and composer Matteo Fargion, performed by Karl and pianist Tim Parkinson.

The piece comprises of over 50 discretely made piano, dance and text-based solos, edited around strict rhythmic structures. They span the overtly political, the understated and the oblique, while ranging in temperament and emotion from the extremely calm and extremely harmonic, to the extremely loud and the extremely vulgar. The piece will probably include the extremely undecided and definitely have extremely bad dancing to extremely French music.

Matteo Fargion is a critically acclaimed composer who works in dance and theatre. He is known particularly for his work with Jonathan Burrows and Siobhan Davies.

Karl Jay-Lewin is a choreographer who "clearly has an adroit feel for the absurd."

This week-long Rip It Up residency by Karl Jay-Lewin (joined by Tim Parkinson) culminates in a work in progress performance.
