Donna Maya (Berlin)

She explores the potential of the theremin and connects it to vivid multi-layers of sound samples, grooving bass lines and distinct rhythms. Her music navigates between noisy textures, tonal progressions and narrative phrases, continuously interacting together and constantly moved by the beat.
