This is the first video from Maike Zazie´s mini-album “Fragmente” – Out on 29 of June on 7K! Maike Zazie Matern creates a kind of acoustic literature with the album FRAGMENTE – never written letters: composed sound and spoken word are condensed to a single level. Music and language, the two passions of the Berlin pianist, composer and literary scholar, find each other. The compositions of the new album are lyrically transfigured, fragile and delicate harmonic units. Each unit seems to be telling a little story, memorizing a memory or following a train of thought.
Maike Zazie Matern is a pianist and a composer. holder of magistra degree in literature with highest honors from both Humboldt Universität and Freie Universität of Berlin, she has also studied in Tübingen and Uppsala, Sweden. Influenced by this passion for both music and literature she composes and performs unconventional piano compositions. She operates in the crossroads of the two arts, her medium being a type of sonic literature in both form and content: she composes pieces of music as she puts stories down on paper; she chooses notes as carefully as she chooses words. For her, sound is a language which enable storytelling. Her music is to be received as an experimental radio play or voice theatre or as a sonic essay.
