Oto Projects by Café Oto present The Necks live at EartH.

The Necks are one of the most distinctive and enthralling groups in music. Ever a pleasure to witness their mesmerically symbiotic musical interplay and we're delighted to welcome them back. The hard-earned, almost telepathic rapport that Chris Abrahams, Lloyd Swanton and Tony Buck have developed over the past three decades is truly one of the most compelling in live music and we're delighted to be able to present a very special off-site show at EartH.

“among the world’s greatest forces in music...” – LA Times

“One of the most extraordinary groups on the planet... a sonic experience that has few parallels or rivals.” – The Guardian

The Necks offer a phenomenal musical experience, unlike any piano trio you may have heard. Masters of their own musical language of long-form improvisation, each night they step onto the stage with no pre-conceived ideas of what they will play – they and the audience will go on a sonic journey that is created in the moment and in that room.

Over their 30 years together, they honed an assured process of building around repeated motifs through subtle shifts and layering, to produce an extraordinarily dense and hypnotic effect which builds in a mesmerising, epic fashion …. a trio conjuring an orchestral expanse. Every Necks' performance is a singular event, 2 sets of approximately 45 minutes, entirely improvised and working with the acoustics of the room.

16+ only. 16s to 17s must be accompanied by an adult. No refunds will be given for incorrectly booked tickets.
