A side, piano, live at Roulette, New York, 2013. Mostly inside piano in a dense stream.
B side, clavinet, live at High Zero, Baltimore, 2013. The electric piano becomes like an electric guitar with lot of preparations! Based in Berlin, Magda Mayas doesn't so much play the piano as push it to its utmost limits. Both in her performance and compositions, Mayas jumps as freely between the free jazz and experimental genres as she does record labels. Records described by critics as powerful and breathtaking, Mayas has released solo and group projects on Split, Another Timbre, Creative Resources and more recently Unsounds Records. Having collaborated on various projects with artists like Christine Abdelnour and Anthea Caddy, Mayas enjoys a long term creative relationship with percussionist Tony Buck, whom she feels a kinship to in regards to the boundless exploration of traditional instruments. With a solid classical heritage, Mayas has moved beyond the confines of classical piano music to create a 'mini orchestra' of sound, noise, rhythm and texture. Once solely an acoustic experimenter, Mayas has recently plugged in and now includes the clavinet in her repertoire.
