“MDQ – Live at the Aberfal Blauhaus” is distributed by the Off Record label – available on bandcamp and all streaming services.

Mac’s compositional style is interpreted by some as ‘transgressive’ because it can drift between classical, jazz, ambient – even experimental improvisation. I would add that there is a romanticism too, a meditative convergence of minimalist rhythmic and melodic trajectories.”

On November 17th, 2020  MDQ performed these seven ‘daily thread’ compositions for the first time at the Aberfal, using a combination of streaming technology and live recording. The atmosphere is hard to describe, partly because of the pandemic restrictions on events and live performances at the time. If the recent slowdown teaches us anything, its that we must do what we can to heal the wounds we’ve made to the planet, and try to imagine into reality a more just and equal future for everyone.
Peace be with you.
