The past year has been major for Magnan, seeing the official release of her 12” EP Don’t Wait for Me on Chicago label Siteholder – two original tracks of dynamic tech rhythms and processed vocals on the far edge of house, plus a remix by Akufen. Other recent tracks exude slow-burning intrigue and warped tape loop vocals, sustained synth riffs, staccato beats and an evocative sample arsenal.
Live, Magnanime’s forward thinking production process and enthusiasm for listener’s reactions shines, aware of her environment she manifests a dance music experience that is a kind of exchange with the audience. She comes to MUTEK with a new live set of exuberant grooves - and meanings, to keep us guessing.
