Hanna Schwarz and Phillip Sollmann www.hannaschwarz.com www.phillip-sollmann.de Artist Hanna Schwarz and composer Phillip Sollmann are performing together for the first time using material from a recent collaboration in Kyoto, Japan including traffic noise, Buddhist Shomyo singing and the sound of the ancient Sho instrument. Squares and Triangles Squares and Triangles are a band founded in 2007 by a group of primarily London- based artists interested in the possibilities of improvised music. When playing music together, Squares and Triangles' focus is not on style or genre but on a process of communication, whereby the group finds structures and songs through intuitive group logic. This is neither ‘jamming' nor conventional song-writing. It is a constant state of tension between playing what feels like music, and what feels like a mistake or a surprise. http://and4and3.org/ A limited edition risograph print by Fay Nicolson http://www.faynicolson.com/ launched and available http://www.ffooaamm.org/imprint/ For further information/ images/ sound contact: info@ffooaamm.org FOAM @ OTO has been devised by Tamsin Clark & Mat Jenner
