MAG aka Magdalena Ågren works with live samplings of trombone, megaphone, voice, guitar, sound and the noise around her. The music is built up from scratch. From the smallest simple element it grows to a gigantic dystopian lo-fi orchestra that sometimes is restrained and suggestive, sometimes chaotic and wild.
MAG has have played more then 100 shows in Scandinavia, Poland, Germany, France, Spain, Portugal, Canada, USA and has shared the bill with acts like Lightning Bolt, Legendary Pink Dots, Trumans Water, Ora Cogan, Wildbirds and Peacedrums, The Skull Defekts. etc, and played at festivals/venues such as Mission Creek Music and Art Festival (San Fransisco), Arts Birthday (Stockholm), FakeJazz (Vancouver), Festival of Endless Gratitude (Copenhagen) and Dockville festival (Hamburg).
“She opened for us in Malmo and I'm still scraping my jaw from the floor after dragging it all the way back to The Netherlands. Marvellous, hugely inventive.... words aren't enough.” – Edward Ka-Spel, Legendary Pink Dots
