I’ll be appearing at Oslo’s Only Connect new music festival in two weeks to talk about Music After the Fall. If you’re in the area come and say hi. My bit’s at lunchtime on Friday 19 May, but there’s lots else going as well, including Jennifer Walshe’s EVERYTHING IS IMPORTANT, which is currently taking Europe by storm; Julius Eastman’s Evil Nigger; Aisha Orazbayeva’s collaboration with artist and writer Tim Etchells, Seeping Through; and an evening of new Norwegian music that includes works by Therese Birkelund Ulvo, Jon Øivind Ness, Rolf Wallin and Øyvind Torvund.
(NB: Issue 1 of Sounds Like Now features an article by Robert Barry on Orazbayeva; issue 2, out in June, will feature a review by Liam Cagney from Berlin’s Maerzmusik of EVERYTHING IS IMPORTANT. Subscribe here.)
