Artists Studio: Dawn of Midi

“…while it may be closest in spirit to ambient electronica or American minimalism, it retains the tenor of a human, organic quest for something spiritual and transformative.”Pitchfork

Dawn of Midi may share the instrumental makeup of a traditional jazz piano trio, but the Brooklyn-based acoustic ensemble have made a name for themselves by discovering entirely new avenues of sound that are focused on rhythm and dismantling jazz with the tools that built it. They come to the Veterans Room to play a set based on their acclaimed album Dysnomia, utilizing sophisticated rhythmic structures from North and West African folk traditions to weave a sonic tapestry of trance-inducing grooves.

This performance is approximately 55 minutes without intermission.

The Artists Studio is supported in part by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the city council and by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
