Fundraiser by Fred Frith for 2023 Opera Performance

Source: Truth is a Four Letter Word. The initial ask is fully funded but it is likely that the event could benefit from more.

Last year I was chatting to my brother Christopher on the phone when he said, a propos of nothing much, “maybe I should commission an opera from you”. I laughed and pointed out that this would, alas, involve rather a prohibitive budget, and we moved on to other things. The following morning I received an email from Fabien Simon, the director of the French festival Sons d’Hiver, proposing that they commission an opera. To say I was delighted and astonished, both by the commission and the serendipity, would be an understatement!

I’ve invited a fabulous line-up of some of my favorite musicians and singers to join us, all of whom touched me greatly by committing to the project without even asking about money! The group includes Lotte Anker (saxes), Alexandre Cahen (piano), Camille Emaille (percussion), Xavière Fertin (clarinets), Ada Gosling-Pozo (violin), Karoline Höfler (double bass), Garth Knox (viola), Ikue Mori (electronics), Tilman Müller (trumpet), Zeena Parkins (harp), Paula Sanchez (cello) and Gabriel Valtchev (tuned percussion), with Rupert Enticknap (counter-tenor) and Clara Weil (contralto).

Dee Byrne – Live at Cafe Oto
Recorded last month as a support set for Model Home as part of their two-day residency at Cafe Oto, this 27-minute live set is Dee’s first solo offering. Dee has been curious about developing a practice as a solo performer ever since she decided to go ahead with a gig when her duo partner (from long running collaboration Deemer) couldn’t make it. Stepping into this unchartered territory, Dee discovered that the experience was simultaneously like jumping off the edge of a cliff and coming home…

Dee Byrne and Cath Roberts have some duo sets coming up in the next couple of months. Catch them as part of HG20 (20 years of the Resoncance FM Hello/Goodbye Show) at Moth Club, London on 31st July, then at Lancaster Jazz Festival on 10th September.

Work is underway on the next Sloth Racket album, due out this October. The band will be playing live to support that release in London (10th October), Brighton (11th October) and Glasgow (15th October) with more dates in progress too.
