Cut and Splice 2015

8:00pm Friday 25 and Saturday 26 September 2015
Cafe Oto
18-22 Ashwin Street, London

Plus-Minus will be performing in this year’s Cut and Splice Festival at Cafe Oto, co-produced by Sound and Music, and BBC Radio 3. Cut & Splice 2015 links the work of the pioneers of the sonic avant-garde to the trail-blazers of today and explores the relationships between music machines and the environment. Moving from the centre to the edges of music-making practices, from the last century to our own, the programme seeks to explore these dual radii of influence, that somehow overlap, create interference patterns and forming a fuzzy and yet compelling continuum on which the programmed works lie.
