As a ravenous fan of The Necks, I am always looking out for like minded artists who put their own
spin on modern minimalism. And Dawn of MIDI have really succeeded, it at points has the visceral
appeal of a tight jazz band, but the looming atmosphere and emotional weight of minimalism. rThis
may also be said for The Necks however DoM differ in their glacial shifts between movements. They
don't linger on ideas for nearly as long as The Necks, which works for them massively due to their
use of polymeter. The grooves on this album interlock in such a spine tingling way. Especially
when sections reach a more dance-like or energetic beat. rEach player fills so much space with a
single instrument, the pianist does a particularly great job of using the range of timbres a piano
can produce. Fantastic stuff
Whenever I listen to this album I listen to this album, I visualize myself in a dark and endless hallway, and no matter how far I walk, how fast I run, or how much I panic, the hallway will forever stay infinite and constant.
A jazz trio so ~avant-garde~ and ~minimal~ that it almost sounds nothing like Jazz anymore but rather like a typical 2013 electronic release (except good of course). Hard to believe that it's all acoustic as well.
