dysnomia trailer • DAWN OF MIDI

channelled madness – the sound dawn of midi spent years shaping, culminating into their most mesmerising work yet.

with dysnomia, the brooklyn-based group dawn of midi abandons improvisation in favour of composition, utilising sophisticated rhythmic structures from north and west african folk traditions to weave a sonic tapestry of trance-inducing grooves. from close up one may see only dots, but when stepping back an undulating image reveals itself. the album was recorded to 2-inch tape at waterfront studios in hudson, new york - a former church that was purchased and transformed into an analogue recording playground by the great engineer henry hirsch. once the band visited the studio and met henry, an expert in analogue recording equipped with a vintage helios console, 16 and 24-track tape machines and a superb collection of microphones, it was obvious they had to record there; it was miles ahead of anywhere else they had visited. rusty santos then mixed the album to make sure it would hit as hard as the group’s favourite electronic albums do in spite of it being entirely acoustic.
