This <b>Sunday 17th June</b> at Cafe OTO - <b>Temperatures</b> continue their UK tour with <b>Ninni Morgia/Silvia Kastel</b> and <b>Bolide</b>
Hailing from Brighton, Bolide is an electro-acoustic improvising sextet formed in 2007. Main members are Spiceberg (aka Daniel Spicer), Tom Roberts, The Sultan and other mysterious individuals. Imagine going to a huge locals-only market outside the Medina, the air is heavy and dusty, the smell is funky, it’s noon & you forgot your hat, you see another goat head being cut and you start to think: maybe I’ll ride a donkey back? Imagine you could record the sounds both inside & outside of you in that moment… that’s sort of what Bolide sounds like. Except now, you can avoid the stressful experience and still enchant your neighbour’s snakes by having it in a pro-dubbed & imprinted pea green tape, with a double-printed collage Jcard.
<b>Silvia Kastel / Ninni Morgia:</b>
Ninni Morgia lived in NY in the early 2000’s, where he played with Daniel Carter, William Parker, Peter Evans, Lee Ranaldo and many more. Since his relocation to Italy, he is now in a duo with free jazz veteran percussionist Marcello Magliocchi (they put out the LP “Sound Gates” on Ultramarine last summer) and in the group Control Unit with Silvia Kastel. Morgia has extensively toured the US and Europe, and has been widely recognized as an innovator of the electric guitar, both for his personal playing techniques and a creative use of effects and electronic textures.
Silvia Kastel is a singer, electronic musician and artist who studied with Joan La Barbara and Indian singing with Lee Torchia and graduated in electronic music and sound engineering, while living in NY. Since she has moved back to Italy, she has toured and recorded with Kommissar Hjuler and Mama Baer, Temperatures, Chora, played shows and festivals including the recent Colour Our of Space in Brighton, UK (together with Ninni Morgia). Her first solo release ‘Love Tape’ is a charming blend of synths, bass, beats, whispering, moaning, screaming, howling…
