Full of Noises at Cafe Oto
Cumbria-based new music and sound art festival Full of Noises presents two nights of performances by artists from their 2013 programme.

Day 2 sees performances from composer Lauren Redhead, who will be presenting a version of her piece ‘entoptic landscape’, composed for FON alongside other short pieces; a solo trombone set from Gail Brand, who has been described as “the most exciting trombone player for years” by The Wire; and amplified tuba duo ORE, making music informed (but not limited) by their enthusiasm for drones, doom metal, improvisation and minimalism.
Free performances and works from the fon archive will also run in the Cafe Oto project space between 14:00 and 17:00 – just drop in. Full listings to follow…
