Alpha Live

This recording of ‘Alpha’ was performed on the 5th of May at the E82 Entr’acte record release event. The recording is a 21-minute performance made with digital sound files from the original electronic work.Lee Gamble,John Wall Piers Martin, Shelly Parker , Oliver Fay,Sheikh Ahmed and Filter Feeder all participated in this event.

Alpha Live to Digital Release

The original work Alpha was composed around metaphors of transformation and the ether. Based on the work of Donna Harrway’s Cyborg Manifesto Alpha strives to create a meta-body in digital sound. To release this live recording through the internet seemed a natural musical and media progression.
These files are available in uncompressed pure audio. This ensures all sonic and spatial qualities are kept extremely close to the original performance. The files are also available for people to share and edit.

Many Thanks to Entr’acte and all who came on that night.

Wire Review Ultra Tonal
Published 23 August 2010 by JT

Been a busy bee in the studio. The summer has been good. Yesterday I bought my copy of The Wire from sister ray record store in soho to see a great review of Ultra Tonal.

London based electronic composer Jo Thomas offers her new EP , Ultra Tonal as a free download via her website. Each of the three tracks, "Tula", "Ultra" and "Shine", feels like its energies are scrambling to break from the restraints that Thomas has put upon them. " Ultra" is especially impressive as her hyperactive bleeps keep getting dragged towards stasis, jamming the music spinning inside disorientating deja vu from which it can't escape. The stand out moment in "Shine" sees Thomas busy material abruptly fall through a structural trapdoor , as she opens a new space.

Jo Thomas Live at Modern Art Oxford :Hold on to your Dreams
Published 30 August 2010 by JT

I hope you have had a great summer. On the 9th of September I have pleasure of working with the writer Tim Lawrence to do the piece “Hold on to your Dreams” in Moma. Oxford.
It’s a work based around Arthur Russell’s music, excerpts from Tim’s beautiful book about Arthur Russell and my own electronic music. It's touching extreme and full of funk. We first performed the piece at the ICA in February and it has since been to Milan, Berlin and now Moma, Oxford.

If you can come along. The piece is part of an evening about Arthur Russell, which includes film, discussion about Arthur Russell.
Enjoy the rest of the summer,
