Sottovoce, now in its 4th year, is a London-based, 4 day, 4 venue festival showcasing groundbreaking acts producing challenging, experimental music.

The festival includes first UK solo performances from percussionist Martin Brandlmayr, guitarist Rogelio Sosa, minimalist improviser and sound artist Anna Zaradny, guitarist Christian Munthe, electronic improviser Ida Lundén, and improv-noise double bass and guitar duo S.Moe/Skaset, the first time pairing of John Butcher and Martin Brandlmayr, the premier of Carlos Casas' new work 'War and Peace', and film premieres of Anne Maregiano's documentary 'Charlemagne Palestine The Golden Sound' and Bernard Josse's 'Soldier of the Road, a Portrait of Peter Brötzmann'. As well as what promises to be a haunting performance from John Wall in the Nave's main hall, a mind-blowing and intense set from Robert Piotrowicz, a multi-channel performance from John Duncan of LAFMS fame, a solo from the remarkable Evan Parker, and much more.
