DJs / Black Top



DJs 11 – 3am
Black Top (12midnight – 1am)
This event is not ticketed: just turn up!

Black Top, the duo of multi-instrumentalist Orphy Robinson and pianist Pat Thomas, is a shape-shifting unit dedicated to exploring the intersection between live instruments and lo-fi technology. Their virtuoso, freely improvised performances combine twisted loops, samples and dub-effects, which draw on their Afro-Caribbean roots, with a spontaneity and daring rooted in experimental free-jazz. Each in the series is moulded by the contributions of a unique guest collaborator. For this late night soirée they will be joined by special guest Ryan Sawyer (drums/percussion) from Zeena Parkins’ Green Dome. Expect some raucous free jazz in the CCA’s foyer!

Our good friends Golden Teacher will be spinning some outer national wax to keep the party rolling to the early hours.

Note: Unfortunately Cuneyt Sepecti has had to cancel his appearance as his visa was turned down.
