June / July 2014

The much anticipated annual summer migration of Ollie Bown to Europe from Australia for 10 weeks has catalysed some Icarus and related musical activity: A new Icarus single will shortly be appearing on Mystery Plays records with live appearnaces at their first ‘Algorave’ in Brighton, in London alongside Fourtet at Plastic People, in collaboration with Black Top at Cafe OTO and in Aarhus alongside Badun.

Ollie will also be presenting his duo with cellist and fellow antipodean Peter Hollo on the 11th June at Cafe OTO alongside The Golden Age Of Steam & Philippe Petit and also hosting a night of autonomous software acrobatics under the MuMe (Musical Metacreation) banner at Cafe OTO on June 29th.
