About

Ohr present Leafcutter John & Sunda Arc live at Soup Kitchen on May 4th. A unique opportunity to see longtime Polar Bear member Leafcutter John perform his new album 'Yes! Come Parade With Us', released on James Holden's Border Community, using his immersive self built audio-visual and light sensitive interface. This is a double header with Sunda Arc; a new electronica project birthed from Norwich based alternate-jazz trio Mammal Hands. The duo currently boast support slots with Go Go Penguin, The Comet is Coming and an EP release on Manchester Jazz label Gondwana Records. John Burton originally studied Painting at Norwich School of Art and Design. After graduating and moving to London he began exploring the possibilities of recording and manipulating sound. His first recordings reached the offices of Planet Mu Records in 1999 where founder and Aphex Twin collaborator Mike Paradinas encouraged John’s more experimental efforts. With Planet Mu John released 3 critically acclaimed albums. His fourth album The Forest and the Sea was toured extensively throughout Europe and Australasia performing alongside Beck, Thurston Moore, Matmos, Nick Cave, Keith Fullerton Whitman, Jarvis Cocker, Yo La Tengo, GraceJones, Beth Orton, Otomo Yoshihide, Aki Onda, Phillip Jeck, Carsten Nicolai, Tujiko Noriko amongst others. Since 2010 John has been busy designing, building, and developing his light controlled musical interface. The interface is a music performance system comprising a light sensitive controller that is played gesturally using handheld lights and other light sources. The sounds produced are strongly related to the performer’s actions and are all produced in real-time to create an immersive audiovisual experience. 2014 saw John play it to a sold-out Roundhouse in London supporting Imogen Heap. In 2015 the interface won the Quartz Award for Innovation. “Alongside Aphex Twin and Bogdan Raczynski – he’s one of the UK’s most fearlessly inventive electronicists” (Time Out London) “A musician who combines acoustic and electronic music with an irresistible compulsion to build Heath Robinson- like inventions” (The Guardian) “One of the bourgeoning stars of post-electronica” (The Wire) Tickets on sale now £8/£10/£12
