Dawn of Midi + Nils Frahm

With a grand piano, upright bass, and drum kit, Dawn of Midi may look like a traditional jazz combo, but its music is anything but standard. Drawing from jazz, minimalism, rock, and a variety of world influences, its sound is ambient yet engrossing, sparse yet rhythmically demanding. The group’s 2103 release Dysnomia, “a work of lunatic genius” (Village Voice), expands the possibilities of acoustic sounds and is heralded by jazz, rock, and trance lovers alike.

Berlin-based composer/keyboardist Nils Frahm’s work is both explosively energetic and intensely thoughtful. His sonic experiments meld electronic and acoustic sounds, and his latest release, Spaces, was named “one of the year’s best albums” by the Quietus.

Frahm and Dawn of Midi share an evening that explores the interplay between extremes of sonic simplicity and complexity.
