MAGDA MAYAS is a pianist and curator currently based in Berlin, Germany. After studying jazz and improvisation in Berlin she began to develop a specific set of techniques for inside-piano performance. Magda 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.

ANTHEA CADDY is a cellist and artist from Melbourne, Australia. Exploiting the cello’s textural, spatial and dynamic capabilities her performances are informed by the relationship between digital composition, environmental field recording, and acoustic performance. 
Anthea often records her cello in unusual spaces using various microphone placements and the surrounding environment to highlight and abstract her performance. These recordings become the basis for her composition and installation work.
