:zoviet*france: + Ron Geesin + Langham Research Centre at Cafe Oto

A rare London performance by :zoviet:france:, enigmatic Newcastle-based pioneers of post-industrial electro-acoustic ambient music (and creators of "A Duck In A Tree" on Resonance FM and Resonance Extra), whose numerous live and recorded works of "unreserved beauty" (The Wire) for over 35 years have given them the status of "the ultimate cult electronic band" (Ambient Music Guide).

Plus an even rarer London performance by living legend Ron Geesin, madcap improvising pianist, past master of tape collage and radiophonic montage, acclaimed composer for John Schlesinger’s "Sunday Bloody Sunday," collector of adjustable spanners - and legendary co-composer with Pink Floyd on "Atom Heart Mother."

Langham Research Centre is the UK's leading group devoted to auth­entic perfor­mances of classic electronic music. LRC work with obsolete equipment including tape recorders, gramophone cartridges and sine wave oscillators, to perform authentic versions of 20th century classic electronic repertoire by John Cage, Alvin Lucier and others, as well as their own compositions.
