Performer

Maya is a composer who likes performing, also in her own pieces.
    She is a founder-member and Artistic Director of Acid Police Noise Ensemble.
    Between 2009 and 2013, she has done lots of performances with the ensemble.
    They are currently not perfoming together anymore because of geographical issues,
    but sometimes, some of the former members find each other and perform together again.
    The Ensemble still has a website and you can find lots of information on it.
    Here: Acid Police Noise Ensemble.

Maya has also collaborated and performed together with other composer/performers such as
    Andy Ingamells, Paul Norman, Robert Blatt, Leo Svirsky, David Pocknee, Ana Lemnaru, Jeremiah Runnels,
    Luke Deane, Ivan Renqvist Babinchak, Grzegorz Marciniak, Maya Felixbrodt and many others...
