Review by Briyan Frederick:

I experienced Maggie-Wynn’s sound art initially through performances at Hal McGee’s Apartment Music and other series as Penny Grune-Fae. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4x3mZf5SZ2Y&list=PL6iCLTPhajwY0ulvey4Y9nQfbLT7AVL6l&index=1&t=11s). These are events where McGee invites a number of artists to perform sets. An experimental music festival in house concert form. Maggie is a regular and always takes us to new places with an arsenal bag of electronic gizmos and toy noise makers.

I think it was the track in the recent Vision of Twilight compilation called “Strange By Anonymous” that revealed another dimension to her artistry to me. It’s got a dancing ever-evolving groove that is immense and satisfying and filled with beautiful retro synths.

Another compilation we share a track on is the Deforestation compilation from t0rphy (by way of Electronic Cottage). The track “Undertheleaves” is an excellent lofi blend of hiphop and chill that prompted me to take further notice and watch out for subsequent work.

Both of these tracks are on this compilation and I encourage you to help support this artist through a tough time.

It’s a good thing for a good soul.
