MORE ON HAYWYRE
Haywyre is a project that synthesizes two musical genres, that of contemporary electronic, along with the more established traditions of classical and jazz. It has been building and maintaining momentum since its creator, Martin Vogt, began releasing works under this moniker in 2009.
Vogt’s primary tool for composition is piano improvisation; it provides the foundation for his work and the core of his musical identity. Having spent endless hours in the studio — and upwards of fourteen years studying piano performance — Martin has honed his craft into the professional sound it is known for today, characterized by exciting, progressive tracks which are crafted with unique composition and seamless design.
In 2014, Martin made major leaps with his highly acclaimed “Two Fold, Pt.1” LP, followed subsequently by a modern rendition of “Smooth Criminal” which immediately achieved viral popularity, and succeeded in astounding music critics across the board. After earning the admiration and respect of some of the biggest acts in the industry, Haywyre went on to tour the nation with the likes of Zedd, Gramatik and Mat Zo.
Haywyre continues his mission to provide his listeners with music that not only presents variety and originality, but also carries the essence of a narrative. As one of the most promising young talents on the label Monstercat, Haywyre is bound to impress the world with his instrumental dexterity and production capabilities.
