OUTSIDERS… the music of Moondog, Cornelius Cardew, Conlon Nancarrow….



Couldn’t resist posting this shot of MOONDOG from the Cafe Oto news letter.Tremendous.

It relates to this Sunday’s performance from the Outsider Music Collective who interpret the music of “outsiders” – the homeless, the genre-less, the academically neglected, the commercially naive.

Following a critically acclaimed night at Bold Tendencies, Peckham, in summer 2012, the Outsider Music Collective come to Cafe OTO to present another programme of outsider classics from Britain and America. This will include celebrated player piano works by Conlon Nancarrow, a selection of James Tenney‘s rarely performed Postal Pieces, solo gems from experimentalists Cornelius Cardew, Howard Skempton and Michael Parsons, a generous portion of vocal and ensemble work by blind street musician Moondog (in brand new arrangements) and new work by the collective.

Word of warning. Very Limited advance tickets remaining! There will be a small number held back for the door. Sunday 20 January ’13 • 8PM • £8 adv / £10 on the door
