‘In Free Fall’ is composer and electronic musician Maya Shendfeld’s debut album. Guests include James Ginzburg (Emptyset), Kelly Odonighue and The Bethenian youth Choir.
Berlin composer Maya Shenfeld’s music is as powerfully evocative as it is strikingly intimate. Through a mastery of sound sculpting and visionary approach to composition, Shenfeld has established herself as one of the most vital voices in Berlin’s New Music scene. Her work exists in liminal spaces, collapsing the boundaries between electronic synthesis and organic sound as it draws equally from classical tradition and underground experimentalism.
Shenfeld is also in demand for her technical knowledge, working with electronic music innovators Ableton in music education and research.
Shenfeld is a rising star in the active Berlin music scene. Her numerous commissions range from largescale orchestral to site-specific sound installations, performing in venues such as the KW Berlin, in collaboration with Berlin-based artist Richard Frater, leading a performance of Julius Eastman’s ‘Gay Guerrila’ by an ensemble of sixteen women playing bass and guitar for the opening event of the Disappearing Berlin festival or writing for the Bethanien youth choir, who performed at Baerwald bad, an abandoned 1902 swimming pool in the heart of Berlin.
Deluxe LP package artwork is designed by fashion designer, and Maya’s sister, Gal Shenfeld. LP includes digital download card.
Available to independent retailers on clear vinyl.
