Goethe-Institut Los Angeles, Villa Aurora and the Unwrinkled Ear present:
ECLECTIC SALON SPECIAL:

REHEAT AND SHIVER: IMPROVISATION WITH A VIEW


Villa Aurora fellows Magda Mayas and Tony Buck are teaming up with New York based musician and composer C. Spencer Yeh and the German musician and composer Georg Gräwe for a one-of-a-kind concert. All four musicians are regarded as highly creative artists, transcending boundaries between styles and disciplines via an experimental and improvisational approach.

The program includes a reception and four sets starting at 8:00 p.m.


C. Spencer Yeh is recognized for his interdisciplinary activities and collaborations as an artist, improviser, and composer, as well his music project Burning Star Core. Among others, his work was presented at MoMA NYC, Whitney Museum NYC, Walker Art Center Minneapolis MN and the Liverpool Biennial. Recent recordings include "Solo Voice I-X" (Primary Information), "Wake Up Awesome," with Okkyung Lee and Lasse Marhaug (Software Recording Company), and Long Pig by New Monuments, his trio with Ben Hall and Don Dietrich (Bocian).

Georg Gräwe began composing and performing professionally at the age of 15. He has since been leading a variety of ensembles - ranging from trio to chamber orchestra formats - which have involved some of the leading instrumentalists in contemporary music, like Anthony Braxton, Evan Parker, Dave Douglas, Phil Minton, Roscoe Mitchell and many others. His compositions, which include chamber music and works for full orchestra as well as scores for films, theatre productions, radio drama and video, have been performed and broadcast around the world. In 2010 he curated a series of 27 events that presented different aspects of resonance between music, poetry, visusal arts and science as part of the European Cultural Capital RUHR.2010.


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. Current projects include TRANSMIT (a guitar driven post-rock project), SPILL with Magda Mayas; New York based trios GLACIAL (with David Watson and Lee renaldo); THE FELL CLUTCH (with Ned Rothenberg, Stomu Takeshi and David Tronzo) and a long standing duo with Axel Doerner. He also creates video works for use with live music performance and has had pieces shown in Tokyo, Belfast, Berlin, New York and Sydney. www.tony-buck.com


Magda Mayas, born 1979, 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. Current projects are "Spill", a duo with drummer Tony Buck, a duo with Christine Abdelnour (sax) and "Great Waitress", a trio with Monika Brooks (acc) and Laura Altman (cl). Since 2013 she has also been producing radio pieces for ABC Australia and Deutschlandradio Kultur and has released 20 CDS to date.
