Magda Mayas, Klavier
Tony Buck, Schlagzeug


Magda Mayas is a pianist living in Berlin. Developing a vocabulary utilizing both the inside as well as the exterior parts of the piano, using preparations and objects, she explores textural, linear and fast moving sound collage. Alongside the piano, Mayas has recently been performing on a Clavinet/Pianet, an electric piano from the 60s with strings and metal chimes, where she engages with noise and more visceral sound material, equally extending the instrumental sound palette using extended techniques and devices. Mayas performs internationally solo and in collaboration with a large number of musicians and composers.
Magda Mayas has performed and toured in Europe, the USA, Australia and Lebanon with many leading figures in improvisation such as John Butcher, Peter Evans, Annette Krebs, Andrea Neumann, Axel Dörner, Johannes Bauer, Christoph Kurzmann, Thomas Lehn and Tristan Honsinger.


Tony Buck is regarded as one of Australia's most creative and adventurous exports, with vast experience across the globe. He has been involved in a highly diverse array of projects but is probably best known around the world as a member of the trio The Necks.
Following studies and early experience in Australia he spent time in Japan, where he formed PERIL with Otomo Yoshihide and Kato Hideki before relocating to Europe in the mid-nineties.
Some of the more high profile projects he has been involved with include the band Kletka Red, and touring and recording with, among others, The EX, The Exiles, and Corchestra, and involvement with most of the international improvisation and new music community and festivals
He also creates video works for use with live music performance and has had pieces shown in Tokyo, Belfast, Berlin, New York and Sydney.
Current projects include long standing duos with Axel Doerner and Magda Mayas; New York based trios "Glacial" (with David Watson and Lee renaldo); "The Fell Clutch" (with Ned Rothenberg, Stomu Takeshi and David Tronzo); Berlin based "Heaven And" and "Ellaspeed" (with Asi Foecker, Magda Mayas, Clayton Thomas and Andy Moor) and "project/TRANSMIT" (a guitar driven post-rock project based in Sydney and Berlin)
