Splitter Orchester

Magda Mayas


born 1979, Münster, Germany

Originally a pianist, Magda developed a vocabulary utilizing both the inside as well as the exterior parts of the piano, using preparations and objects, and exploring textural, linear and fast moving sound collage.
Alongside the piano, Magda performs on a Clavinet/Pianet, an electric piano from the 60s with strings and metal chimes, where she engages with timbral textures, noise and more visceral sound material, equally extending the instrumental sound palette using extended techniques and devices.
