Magda Mayas och Sten Sandell presenterar sin musik.
Magda Mayas, born 1979, is a pianist living in Berlin.
Over the past 20 years she developed a vocabulary utilizing both the inside as well as the exterior parts of the piano, usingamplification, preparations and objects that become extensions of the instrument itself.
Mayas explores textural, linear sound collage, and has developed a set of techniques that draw on the history of prepared and inside piano vocabulary, but are highly individualized and expand the language for internal piano music making.
She is currently undertaking Phd studies at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, investigating instrumental techniques, timbre and spatiality in improvised music performance.
