Here comes the SNFCC's Microcosmos, the experimental sibling to Cosmos, the cultural centre's popular concert series. This year’s Microcosmos features international musicians with apparent (and less apparent) jazz backgrounds, who are working the space in between the boundaries of musical genres. The programme kicks off with the Oded Tzúr Quartet (22/10). In addition to jazz, Tzúr has studied traditional Indian music and has developed a very special and intriguing technique that visitors will get to witness him perform on stage. Next up comes Berlin-based pianist Lambert (19/11). Known for his theatrical presence (he always dons a Sardinian mask when performing,) he builds on jazz themes by incorporating electronic and rock elements. Our very own Jan Van x Fotis Siotas will take the stage next year (21/1) and present Folk Nowadays, a showcase of the musical tradition of Northern Greece. Local trio Mob (11/2) follows with a post-punk twist to contemporary jazz. Last but not least, British group Ruby Rushton (31/03), led by the restless Tenderlonious, will perform pieces of prominent jazz musicians, reaching way back to John Coltrane.
