Concerts take place every first Wednesday of the month, starting 6th April and ending 1st June. SUMS, the collaboration between Raster-Noton’s Kangding Ray and Mogwai’s guitarist and keyboardist Barry Burns, headline the first show on 6th April. Following their live performance last year at Berlin Atonal this will be their debut in Milan.

Lastly on the 1st June, Norwegian jazz pianist and nu-jazz innovator Bugge Wesseltoft teams up with German producer Christian Prommer, known for translating club music into non-electronic music with its ‘Drumlessons’ productions with Peter Kruder.
