Over the last years, Terry Day has been adding his discography to Cafe OTO's Terry Day Archives with the support of the Unpredictable Series. This project will include 50 + albums by the end of the year.
To celebrate the Terry Day Archives project, we present an exceptional evening with:
GK4 with George Khan, Charlie Hart, Terry Day, Mike Figgis-
A duo with Rosey Chan & Blanca Regina with visuals by Pierre Bouvier Patron.
A solo by Charlie Hart
The GK4 were original members of the PEOPLE BAND between 1965 to 1972 and are amongst a few small groups originating from the People Band. After that, Mike Figgis achieved international acclaim for making and directing Movies. George Khan became a grand gentleman working with the People Show. Charlie Hart found his niche with Ronnie Lanes "SLIM CHANCE", which he continues to play with. Terry Day continues to remain in the 'Improvised Music Scene'.
Rosey Chan and Blanca Regina combine as a duo for the first time, blending classical piano and modes of improvisation and electronics accompanied by the visuals created by Pierre Bouvier Patron.
A very rare violin solo set from Charlie Hart.
Unpredictable Series looks at art, performance, and spontaneous music, its synergies, the creation of new works, and archives.
We create festivals, exhibitions, performances, talks, publications, and workshops engaging audiences in new ways of making and understanding art and music.
Unpredictable Series was initially a collective founded in London in 2013 by artist & curator Blanca Regina and free improviser & composer Steve Beresford. Pierre Bouvier Patron joined them, focusing on experimental film and performance. As well as Jack Goldstein to create Strange Umbrellas. Collaborators and guest curators include Tomi Osuna (design), Karel Doing (film performance), Sharon Gal (music & art), Gina Southgate (live painting and performance), Terry Day (music & art), Dave Hunt ( sound production), David Toop (artist & curator), Peter Cusack (artist & tutor, Matthias Kispert and others.
Last projects include ‘Unpredictable Radio’ (live streaming sessions) and ‘Strange Umbrellas’, which presented unique events of experimental music, free improvisation, film, and art, in London and elsewhere. Recent projects are Unpredictable: Conversations with Improvisers: a collection of 12 videos that have grown out of deep research into the nature of Free Improvisation, its history in the UK, and its international connections. The videos respond to the urgent need to investigate the genre and its rich legacy. The series was commissioned by Sound & Music for the 50th anniversary of the British Music Collection.
In 2021 we launched Unpredictable Thursdays at the Vortex Jazz Club. In 2o2o we curated Unpredictable Times. In 2017 we presented Art of Improvisers Extended at Cafe Oto, London, in collaboration with The Wire 400 and supported by Arts Council England. Also in that year, we presented Sonic Waterloo in collaboration with Iklectik. In 2016 we organized the Alterations Festival in London – a blast – and two ‘Strange Umbrellas’ events in Berlin. In 2015 we presented ‘Art of Improvisers’ and ‘Terry Day and Friends’. We’ve presented a series of events in London at Cafe OTO, OTO Projects, Iklectik, Ray’s Jazz at Foyles, Waterstones, and Portland Hall (CREAM/ University of Westminster). Supporters of our projects include Cream, Crisap, Sound & Music, and Arts Council England.
In 2019 Unpredictable became a Community Interest Company registered in England as a C.I.C. (11775548)
