MAG

MAG´s homepage

MAG ( Sweden)
MAG 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 aka Magdalena Ågren has since 1995 has been involved in many different bands such as Surplus People, Good Morning Sweden, Maggot and Jurassic Jesus and toured around both in Europe and North America. She is also currently playing in two other band projects, SORK and Trapped in a Loop. MAG has toured in Poland. Germany, Canada, USA, and Scandinavia, 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 Dockwille 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
