tony buck is one of australia’s most well-known improvisers. he has been involved in a highly diverse array of projects but is probably best known around the globe as a member of the trio the necks.
prior to relocating to europe in the mid-nineties, he spent time in japan, where he formed peril with otomo yoshihide and kato hideki. some of the projects he has been involved with include the band kletka red, and touring and recording with, among others, the ex, the exiles, and corchestra.
his current projects include long standing duos with axel dörner and magda mayas, the trio glacial (with david watson and lee renaldo), the fell clutch (with ned rothenberg, stomu takeshi and david tronzo), heaven and, asiplusband (with asi foecker and andy moor) and project/transmit.
magda mayas is a pianist currently based in berlin who has concentrated her musical investigations on the piano and its sonic possibilities, utilizing extended techniques, amplification and preparations as a process of abstraction, whilst focusing on the physicality of both internal and external parts of the piano.
as a continuation of this research mayas founded the festival tasten-berliner klaviertage featuring contemporary and innovative approaches for the piano.
aside from performing as a solo musician, mayas currently performs in a duet with tony buck, she is a member of trio phono phono (with michael renkel and sabina vogel) and also the quartet mayas/nutters/olsen/galvez. as an improvisor, she has shared stage with artists such as andy moor, steve heather, annette krebs, andrea nueman, axel dörner, michael zerang, johannes bauer, christoph kurzmann, thomas lehn,tristan honsinger, frank gratkowski and michael moore.
