Trio Sowari + Miles Otto

1 March 19:30

Our 2020 Plink Plonk season kicks off with this wonderful show from the amazing electroacoustic group Trio Sowari, with support from Norwich-based electronic artist, Miles Otto.

Trio Sowari:

Phil Durrant – modular and software synthesizers

Burkhard Beins – percussion and objects

Bertrand Denzler – tenor saxophone

”Moving within evolving electro-acoustic fields Trio Sowari investigates their asymmetric structures and multilayered ambiguities. No signs of dystopianism or retrotopianism here, but undaunted and spirited ways of facing a complex and bewildering present.

The group brings together an English electronics specialist, a Swiss/French saxophonist and a German percussionist, all of them highly committed to the European contemporary experimental music scene. As members of ensembles like Mimeo, Hubbub, Polwechsel and countless others, they have released their music on labels such as Another Timbre, Erstwhile, Matchless, Potlatch, Confront, Hat Hut, For4Ears, Emanem, Leo, and many others.

Since its foundation in 2004 the group has played innumerable venues and festivals all across Europe.

“This is disciplined, focused music, the sound of people really thinking and playing, and close attention is consistently rewarded.”
– Clive Bell, The Wire –

“Musicianship and creativity of the highest order.”
– Dan Warburton , ParisTransatlantic –

“The result of these alluring and positively sensual investigations is a dense and coherent sound composed of a myriad of building blocks, which allows both for macro- and micro-listening.”
– Tobias Fischer, tokafi –

“It’s unclear how or what they’ve done, but surely Trio Sowari has done it again.”
– Mark Corroto, All about Jazz –

Miles Otto:

Miles Otto mixes experimental ideologies with tried and tested dance music languages using a variety of electronic hardware instruments. Described as ‘Retrofuturist’ by Electronic Sound Mag, Miles Looks ahead whilst paying respect for whats behind.

Miles is especially known for his energetic live performances that involve lots hands on equipment and improvisation.

Tickets £5, payable on the door. 

Norwich Casual Letterheads

Letterheads first began in 1975 when a group of signwriting apprentices came together to share sign painting techniques at risk of extinction. Norwich Casual Letterheads is an opportunity to catch up with old friends and make new ones, learn about sign painting, gilding and lettering, pick up a brush, lay down some paint and, most importantly, to have fun!

Letterheads first began in 1975 when a group of signwriting apprentices came together to share sign painting techniques at risk of extinction.

These meeting have grown over time with international meets, as well as smaller, more local ones, allowing the trade to flourish with the sharing of knowledge among the thousands of letterheads around the world.

Norwich Casual Letterheads is an opportunity to catch up with old friends and make new ones, learn about sign painting, gilding and lettering, pick up a brush, lay down some paint and, most importantly, to have fun!

THE WEEKEND

At Norwich Casual Letterheads we’re keeping it, well, casual! Bring your brushes, grab a panel and get painting. The panel jam will be running all weekend and is an opportunity to socialise over a cuppa and a cup of paint, take it easy and go with the (Chroma) flow. Larn yarself some Norfolk and get familiar with our unique dialect. Paint a pal a paper sign. The choice is yours! We’ll be running a few talks and demonstrations over the weekend, allowing you to familiarise yourself with some new techniques and disciplines, duck in and out at your leisure. In the evenings we will be hosting socials, allowing you to explore the city (it’s only small!) and on Saturday night we will be hosting a party at our fantastic venue.

On Sunday we will be running a charity auction with submissions from the panel jam and any pieces that people have painted in advance. This will be open to the public and all profits will be split between the East Anglia Children’s Hospices and MIND charities.
