Tangents

The JazzLab

“…you’re sucked inside a sound world where organic and robotic elements cohabit with improbable collegiality” – Sydney Morning Herald

Sydney outfit Tangents defy easy categorisation, moving between electronic, free jazz, rock and new musical forms with freewheeling abandon. Their distinctive, unpredictable sound brought them to esteemed Brooklyn label Temporary Residence (home to Four Tet, Mogwai and William Basinski), and their critically acclaimed 2018 album New Bodies was described by Pitchfork as a record of “endless ideas.”

Making their MIJF debut in 2022, this entirely improvised performance will feature material from their acclaimed 2021 release, Timeslips & Chimeras.
