OK people,  TRIPTYCH Festival is about to launch in London,  presenting the work of Eliane Radigue  

My ECP neighbour Kaffe Matthews tells us:  “I’ve known Eliane since 1999 and we first collaborated when she gave the work Elemental II to the Lappetites  to play in Paris 2002.   We’ll be playing this on Tuesday June 14th at Christ Church, Spitalfields. Also, To make the most of the Lappetites  being in town,  (we live in Finland, Japan and London) we’ll also  play ‘Tokohu – wall, silence,’  and  ‘ Where are the Wild Ones’ at Café OTO on Wed June 16th,  8.00p.”
