22:15 | Listenable and insane. That's the sound Dawn of Midi spent years shaping, culminating in their most mesmerizing work yet: Dysnomia, released in 2013. In many ways, it's the first record that truly reflects the trio's critically acclaimed live show, a test of endurance and trust that involves bassist Aakaash Israni, pianist Amino Belyamani and percussionist Qasim Naqvi performing their compositions note-for-note without ever appearing the least bit predictable. Dysnomia is a brooding balancing act between a fascination with structure and a desire to create their own definition of dance music.
21:15 | Xylouris White brings together two masters of contemporary music: Jim White, a founder of the internationally acclaimed trio Dirty Three and Giorgos Xylouris (Psaragiorgis) the master lutenist who has been described as 'the future of Cretan music'. Together Xylouris White have created a new and compelling blend of melody and rhythm. Even to watch them absorbed in their music is an exhilarating experience. Their first album, 'Goat', is due in October on Other Music/Fat Possum.
20:15 | Avant-garde composer and baroque lutenist Jozef Van Wissem's music is uncluttered and direct, with a viscerally hypnotic and emotional impact and delivered with an ascetic intensity reflected in his catholic titles. Long form graceful melodies create a transcendental pastoral world. An incessantly touring musician, his intense live shows have taken him all over the world, and he has performed at prestigious festivals like All Tomorrow's Parties and Primavera Sound. In 2013 he won the Cannes Soundtrack award for Only Lovers Left Alive. He collaborates with Jim Jarmusch, Tilda Swinton and Zola Jesus.
