Dawn of Midi at Trino's tonight

What's that noise? It's Dysnomia, an evening of sonic performance from the Dawn of Midi, playing at 9 p.m. at Trinosophes in Detroit. What does it sound like? Like some super-cool moody minimalism, a stripped down, sound that opens new possibilities to hear what's there. Sort of like a lot of the artists who play at what's become Detroit's top place to experience improvisational and experimental music.

This is going to be a cool night. Why? For starters, the show is co-presented by the University Musical Society, which means if the Ann Arbor-based group can find agreement with Detroit's scrappy stage, the music must be stellar indeed. Furthermore, the Brooklyn-based trio is actually a multinational group composed of bassist Aakaash Israni (India), pianist Amino Belyamani (Morocco), and drummer Qasim Naqvi (Pakistan). And, to put all further question to flight, here's what you can expect. Thanks, YouTube.

Yes, it's pricier than your usual Trino's show ($30, to be exact) but the management at Trino's stressed that this being a UMS co-production, admission is not the usual paltry sum Trino's patrons have come to expect.

That said, you don't want to miss this.
