Silvia Tarozzi & Deborah Walker @ Cafe Oto

Silvia Tarozzi & Deborah Walker @ Cafe Oto

PROGRAMME

- Duet for Silvia and Deborah (2015) by Tim Parkinson

- Holy Trinitye (2015) by Philip Corner

- New piece for violin (2016) by Cassandra Miller

- Songs of war, work and love (2014 – 2016) traditional italian songs arranged by Deborah Walker and Silvia Tarozzi

For more than 10 years Silvia Tarozzi violin and Deborah Walker cello have been exploring together musical forms on the borderline between composition and improvisation. Their music requires intense listening, exploration of gesture, search for new expressive possibilities. They first met in 2003 in Reggio Emilia at an improvisation master class with Vincent Courtois and Joelle Léandre. Initially they worked together under the guidance of the violinist Enzo Porta at Modena Conservatory and then in Paris, alternating the study of contemporary music with new experiences and interactions in the French experimental scene. Since 2007 they have been part of the Dedalus ensemble collaborating, among others, with Tom Johnson, Jurg Frey, Christian Wolff, Tim Parkinson, and Philip Corner. Since 2008, Silvia and Deborah have worked regularly with Pascale Criton, a composer involved in microtonal experimentation and the use of various scordaturas with micro-intervals. Since 2010 they have also collaborated with Eliane Radigue in compositions for solo instruments, duos, trios and quartets in her recent project Occam Ocean.

840 are excited to present an evening of new music for percussion performed by Abstruckt Ensemble. Two simultaneous versions of Letter Piece #5, Northern Cities by Matthew Shlomowitz (Plus-Minus Ensemble), Indefinite Ockeghem by Federico Reuben (Squib Box), and drum piece by Tim Parkinson (Music We'd Like to Hear) will be performed alongside new works by Leo Chadburn (Simon Bookish), Josh Spear (Bastard Assignments), Maya Verlaak (Birmingham Conservatoire), as well as 840's own Alex Nikiporenko and Nicholas Peters.

Abstruckt Ensemble are a London-based percussion collective who formed at the Royal College of Music and specialise in contemporary and experimental repertoire. Since their debut at Café OTO, Abstruckt have performed across London at a variety of events including Kammer Klang, Nonclassical and, most recently, Listenpony, where the ensemble premiered three newly commissioned works. In their education projects, the ensemble have used works by Cage, Reich, De Mey, Loevendie and Applebaum to inspire students at schools in London and Yorkshire, working alongside Peckham's Multi-Storey Orchestra.

Abstruckt Ensemble are: Ana Gasco-Gomez, Elsa Bradley, Emma Arden and Joe Richards.

The concert will take place at the St James’ Church, Islington, London N1 8PF.

09-15.05.16 Festival zum 100. Atelierkonzert und Ausstellung "Zeichnungen von Musikern"

Von Montag 9. Mai bis Sonntag 15.Mai 2016 wird im Raum in der Klingentalstrasse 72 eine Woche lang jeden Abend ein Konzert stattfinden, und es werden über den gesamten Zeitraum Zeichnungen von MusikerInnen ausgestellt sein. In den 15 Jahren des Bestehens der Reihe Atelierkonzerte fanden in der Mehrzahl Konzerte mit improvisierter Musik statt, und die improvisierte Musik ist auch für das Festivalprogramm Ausgangspunkt. Allerdings einer, von dem aus ich den Blick auf einige spannende kompositorische und konzeptuelle Ansätze lenken möchte, die sich im Bereich der nichtakademischen Experimentalmusikszene entwickelt haben und entwickeln. Die Ausstellung zeigt Zeichnungen von vielen der MusikerInnen, die im Lauf der Jahre Konzerte im Atelier gespielt haben. Das Spektrum reicht von freien Zeichnungen über Zeichnungen zu Musik bis hin zu Kompositionsentwürfen oder grafischen Notationen, sowie von der aufgehobenen Schülerzeichnung bis zu Werken, die eine professionelle und kontinuierliche Arbeit auch im Feld der Bildenden Kunst zeigen
