Experience the unique musical landscapes of Othon with Wolfgang Tillmans

Othon creates genre-defying compositions that draw upon a range of musical traditions, including classical, world and electronic music. For his contribution to Wolfgang Tillmans: South Tank the musician will perform a continuous set of dream-like semi-improvisations while Tillmans will provide sonic interventions throughout the duration of the piece.
