STEPHEN CORNFORD & PATRICK FARMER | CAFE OTO 12.09.13

December 1st, 2013 |  Published in Blog

From Cafe Oto’s listing: “Although they have worked together for almost four years Stephen Cornford & Patrick Farmer had never performed as a duo until recording the collection of brutalist field recordings launched on this tour. Patrick has been a percussionist since the age of 12 when his mother bought him his first drum kit, eight years later he spent six months studying Hindustani Tabla with Pandit Nayan Ghosh. Ever restless, for this tour he has picked up a reel to reel player in the hope that its motors will surpass his expectations and objects. Stephen is a sculptor who reconfigures the mechanical media of old. On this tour he will attempt to simultaneously transcribe and playback Patrick’s playing onto blank vinyl in real time, he will fail.”
