An evening of music to mark the 100th anniversary of a colossal revolution in the philosophy of aesthetics and purpose, architecture and design: Bauhaus.

The EFG London Jazz Festival celebrates the movement’s impact with a show created around the Bau.Haus.Klang project. Following it's Berlin premiere in January, composer and pianist Michael Wollny challenges the question of how Bauhaus manifesto could be translated into today’s sound.

The improvisational skills of a jazz pianist dared by the mechanics of the 'phonola', a music machine from the twenties that operates a second grand piano programmed by Wolfgang Heisig. Emile Parisien, Leafcutter John and Max Stadtfeld accompany this stimulating dialogue. The Brooklyn based acoustic, minimalist music trio Dawn of Midi perform their musical response to the movement by bringing their mesmerising grooves and refined rhythmic structure in association with Erased Tapes, and percussionist Daniel Brandt performs his Eternal Something project.
