The Nonet is an ensemble Miguel uses to explore various compositional techniques with specific focus on texture, timbre, polyrhythms, and the relationships between them all. Miguel draws influence from both Jazz and 20th Century European Art Music as well as contemporary artists such as Steve Lehman and Greg Osby among many others.
The band features many of London’s leading jazz musicians who bring their own personalities to the sound through their unique improvisations.They released ‘Apophenia’ in 2019 on Ubuntu.
