    The extraordinary pianist and composer Nik Bartsch brings his group Ronin to Turner sims for the first time to present music from his new ECM album Awase.

    A term from martial arts, Awase means 'moving together' in the sense of matching energies - a fitting metaphor for the dynamic precision, tessellated grooves and balletic minimalism of Nik Bartsch's Ronin.

    Despite the multiplicity of the band's influences, Ronin's music always possesses a strong individuality. They incorporate elements of disparate musical worlds, be they funk, new classical music or sounds from Japanese ritual music.

    Spidery, clockwork jazz funk ... crisp Swiss perfection. The Wire
