sample the album:
"Radiation sees the group expand upon the template set-up by the first Transmit release [project], extending the instrumental palate and approach to sonority and song form while retaining the power and drive of the initial group sound.The addition of the psychedelic organ and keyboard sounds of Magda Mayas merge with the basic line-up of guitar, bass and drums to fuel insistent grooves and stretch the songs into trance and ritualistic dimensions.
Transmit is a band revolving around the writing, drumming and guitar of Tony Buck, with core line-up of Magda Mayas on organ and piano, James Welburn on bass, and Brendan Doughety playing drums.
The focus here is very much on rhythm and momentum and the layering of parts and sounds. The instrumental line-up of TRANSMIT features driving guitar, throbbing bass, chiming chords, swelling organ and propulsive drumming, combining to bring you a big, slowly building trance machine.
The band has recently performed concerts with extended versions, featuring video and performance and guests, including Steve Heather on drums and percussion, Mike Majkowski on double bass, a horn section of Boris Hauf and Axel Doerner and Thomas Meadowcroft on organ."-Tony-Buck.com

Alongside the piano, Mayas has recently been performing on a Clavinet/Pianet, an electric piano from the 60s with strings and metal chimes, where she engages with noise and more visceral sound material, equally extending the instrumental sound palette using extended techniques and devices.Mayas performs internationally solo and in collaboration with a large number of musicians and composers.Current projects are "Spill", a duo with drummer Tony Buck, a duo with Christine Abdelnour (sax) and "Great Waitress", a trio with Monika Brooks (acc) and Laura Altman (cl).
She is currently undertaking Phd studies at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden and investigating extended instrumental techniques, spectral music and psychoacoustics in an improvised music context.
Since 2013 she has also been producing radio pieces for ABC Australia and Deutschlandradio Kultur and has released 20 CDS to date.
Magda Mayas has performed and toured in Europe, the USA, Australia, Mexico and Lebanon and collaborated with many leading figures in improvisation and composers such as John Butcher, Andy Moor, Zeena Parkins, Joelle Leandre, Paul Lovens, Ikue Mori, Phill Niblock, Peter Evans, Andrea Neumann and Axel Dörner.
