BLACKi is an improvisational group in member composition as well as performance. Over 97 different musicians have been participants in a BLACKi experience at one time or another. The philosophy of BLACKi is one of an unyielding melting pot, wherein each chance meeting and interaction provides a new music. Depending on the musical background of the majority of the participants, the outcome may be one of aggressive melody or challenging sound. The goal is to avoid the familiar, and in the end it is the sound of surprise.
Daniel Kaniess was a founding member of BLACKi. Daniel last performed live with BLACKi in November, 2011.
