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.”
The Lappetites, is an international collective of artists who create their work through online communication and occasional one place collision somewhere else in the world. For their café Oto debut, Akama and Matthews will present:
‘Tokohu – wall, silence‘ a specially made work, with contribution from AGF and Radigue, that plays on and questions catastrophe, the planet, information and survival through the daily experiences of the players since the 3.11 tsunami.
‘Where are the wild ones?‘ performed in 4 channels by KM follows the dangerous route Atlantic Salmon take from Greenland up the river Tyne to their spawning ground in Kielder Water, Northumberland. All music made from recordings taken in the River Tyne, England Jan, Feb 2010. Where are the wild ones? was A RIVERS commission by AV Festival 10 and the Environment Agency, curated by Rebecca Shatwell, premiered on March 14th 2010 at The Sage, UK.
