Listenable and insane. That’s the electroacoustic sound Dawn of Midi spent years shaping, culminating in their most mesmerizing work to date: Dysnomia. The Brooklyn-based trio, a multinational group composed of bassist Aakaash Israni (India), pianist Amino Belyamani (Morocco), and drummer Qasim Naqvi (Pakistan), performs sets that are as rhythmic as a seamlessly mixed DJ set, casting spells on crowds in the same way the group’s favorite modern classical and electronic artists have for decades. Their carefully cultivated aesthetic incorporates such wildly divergent influences and interests as Aphex Twin, the Police, Can, and the video game Ms. Pac-Man. “A work of lunatic genius.” (Village Voice)
