In the pastAnother TimbreIt is a collaboration released by Magda Mayas and Tina Douglas, a sound writer from Melbourne, Australia, released in November 2021 on the label room 11, which is presided over by the sound writer Lawrence English in Brisbane, Australia.The booklet contains scores, dialogue and photos.

The following is a commentary by the writer himself.

 "I met Tina about 10 years ago through a fellow musician in Melbourne.

Tina listened to my performances on various occasions, and I visited her studio and watched her performances many times.It quickly became clear that personal and aesthetic connections were made and that in years of conversation they shared a way of working.

Both of us are attracted to the improvisational and intuitive process, creating works using unique objects and tools, and building close relationships with them.Things generate ideas, limit my actions, and fundamentally compose my work.Tina's sheet music is very sculptural and tactile.The piano, my objects and the preparations in them also feel sculptural, tactile and embodied.

When I started recording music to react to Tina's sheet music, I slowed things down, exposing some fragility and imperfections, one melody, one chord, one small note was enough. There was a desire to be.On the piano, an orchestra-like approach is possible, and I often do.However, I felt that this kind of complexity was not necessary for this collaboration.

This project and sheet music have some kind of fragility that I like.It was a thin paper sheet music, and everything I carried from Australia to Berlin, cutouts, etc. was very fragile and beautiful, and I wanted to do that with music. "

Artist statement by Magda Mayas:

"Tina and I met around 10 years ago in Melbourne through mutual musician friends.

Tina has heard me perform in various context and I have visited her studio and seen her perform on multiple occasions. There was an immediate personal and aesthetic connection and conversations over the years revealed shared ways of working --a collaboration seemed natural and exciting.

We are both drawn to improvisational and intuitive processes and we both use individualized objects or tools to create and develop close relationships with these. For me, it's a symbiotic process: the objects generate ideas, they afford and limit what I do and structure a piece in a fundamental way. Tina's scores are very sculptural and tactile --the piano and my objects and preparations in them likewise feel sculptural, tactile, embodied -objects, materials and relationships crossing over.

When I started recording music to respond to Tina's scores, I had a wish to slowing things down, to expose a certain fragility or imperfection and to let one melody or one chord or one little noise be enough. With the piano you can have such an orchestral approach, and I often do that, but with this collaboration I didn't feel like I wanted this kind of complexity.

There is a certain fragility that I like about the project and the scores: the fact that they are thin paper scores and I retracts them from Australia to Berlin, the cut-outs… it's all very fragile and beautiful and I kind of felt that I wanted to allow the music to be like that too. "
