Free jazz, punk, hardcore, contemporary art music – multiple references race past, none of them remaining constant, everything a stream of constant change.

About the concert

Cavalcade

Brilliant, impulsive and without any stylistic guard rails, the young British avant-garde rock band black midi roar down a road full of twists and turns, dotted with a wide range of associations: free jazz, punk, hardcore, contemporary art music – multiple references race past, none of them remaining constant, everything a stream of constant change. Expressive beauty and hard, raw noise are united as skilfully as the catchy and the obscure. They enter the turns at speed, not knowing where they are about to lead. Adventurous chord sequences, intricate rhythms, wild shifts and a constant readiness to break into improvisation make the band’s performance of the new album Cavalcade a sensational ride of a kind rarely experienced on the advanced rock scene.
