Gig Preview: Trio HSK at Cafe Lento, 10th July
Cafe Lento in Leeds have their final gig before the summer break tonight and it features Trio HSK.
The Scottish Trio HSK are currently playing a string on dates across the UK which culminates in a performance at the Edinburgh Jazz Festival featuring special guest Cory Henry, keyboard player with Snarky Puppy and Robert Glasper.
Their compositions draw from contemporary classical music, jazz, hip-hop, breakcore, metal and the music of the Americas, making their language rhythmically and harmonically dense. They deal with musical ambiguities, in particular ‘actual versus perceived rhythm’, deriving unique improvisational frameworks. Among their influences they cite Pierre Boulez, Franco Donatoni, Iannis Xenaxis, Meshuggah, Venetian Snares, Nerve, Dillinger Escape Plan and Robert Glasper.
Expect some surprises and a lot of chops! Entry is £5 and music starts at 8pm.
