About

MAG
MAG aka Magdalena Ågren is based in Gothenburg Sweden. She works with live samplings of trombone, megaphone, voice, field recordings and noise, together with a drum machine. 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.  MAGs music strives for deep innerness and a powerful power in its expression, that seeks both confrontation and commonality.

MAG just released her first solo album Magnitude 2016 at Surplus Recordings  and Zeon Light Skiva  and have played more then 100 shows in Europe and North America.  Magdalena Ågren is also currently playing in two other band projects, SORK and Trapped in a Loop.
