Up and coming cutting edge duo, Othon & Tomasini, has thrilled audiences all over Europe with its explosive electric performances.

Othon’s uncompromising songwriting and virtuosic piano playing perfectly match Tomasini’s staggering 4 octave range and idiosyncratic theatricality. Sonically, they mix and tease cabaret, pop and punk with opera histrionics and post romantic melodrama, while emotionally they move from the darkest corners of the psyche to the most joyous corners of the human heart.

This is the only appearance in London after their recent sold out show at the Leicester Square Theatre last June!

“Othon & Tomasini’s concert was entertaining, intense and of an extraordinary quality”

Sieben is vocalist and violinist Matt Howden’s one-man show.
One voice, one violin, one simple loop-pedal. The songs are made live, layer upon layer of looped violin, beaten, plucked, bowed and thrashed! Matt has produced studio albums for various artists including The Mystery School and Sol Invictus; done string arrangements for artists such as The Walkabouts, Faith and the Muse, and L’Ame Immortelle; remixes for Emilie Autumn, Dope Stars and many more; music for film, television, dance companies, and art exhibitions; over 1,000 live appearances. more
