Carter Tutti To Play Heaven

Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti are to conduct one of their infamous Carter Tutti plays Chris & Cosey sets at Heaven this Spring, the Quietus is excited to report. The performance takes place on Sunday May 19th, and will also feature sets by former Pan Sonic man Mika Vainio and Excepter.

Vainio will be playing a set based on material from his forthcoming solo album Kilo. For more on him, check out our recent interview here, from around the time of his recent Cafe Oto show.

We saw the deeply unusual Excepter at Cafe Oto last year, and we’re promised that "This time around the tree wielding cosmic jokers inaugurate our pleasure domes by dropping their improv beat box / synth pulse space sounds from their new, as yet untitled album."

If you haven’t yet experienced a Carter Tutti plays Chris & Cosey set, we urge you to this link on February 11th at 9am to buy yourselves tickets. These are performances that transcend the mere ‘gig’, and become a rather physical and transcendent dialogue between artist and audience – as well being a right good rave-off. We’ve never seen the ICA move like it did at the first Carter Tutti plays Chris & Cosey performance in 2010. See our words on their appearance at Incubate last year here. Oh yes, and "All sounds power-projected through Heaven’s legendary floor shaking sound system". Cannot wait.
