Not entirely ambient, nor minimalist, nor jazz, The Necks create a music that is unique in the world today.
Since their beginnings 23 years ago, they have continued to craft an immersive, hypnotic, ritual-like concert experience that allows the listener to perceive the very fundamentals of music in a completely new light. Their completely improvised concerts on acoustic piano, bass and drums have the room ringing with sound and the audience utterly mesmerized.
A performance by The Necks is a transcendent, unrepeatable trip.
