Interview: Dawn of Midi

Interview: Dawn of Midi

Tuesday 3rd June, 2014 12:40PM

Last year New York ensemble Dawn of Midi emerged with their sophomore album Dysnomia and simultaneously pushed perceptions of what jazz music can be. The offering saw the trio shift away from free-form jazz and move towards using stringent rhythms that repeat and loop in a way which has evoked endless comparisons to electronica music, as well as earning the three-piece places on the "Best Albums of 2013" lists by The New Yorker and NPR. The unconventional group are now billed to bring their piano, drums and double bass to the capital as part of the Wellington Jazz Festival this weekend to play Dysnomia live in its 46-minute entirety. We caught up with bassist Aakaash Israni from his home Brooklyn to learn more about the evolution of their sound and the visa pitfalls that can come with extensive touring.
