Maas & Klein
Singles and EPs
35 years after their first meeting, a long cherished wish of Maas and Klein has come true. Their collaboration is given concrete form in a new project that has resulted in the album Più Vicino. In 1985 keyboardist Will Maas and guitarist Tom Klein met at the Twentsch Conservatory in Enschede, where they both started their studies that year. In the years that followed, these musicians each went their own way in the music industry. In addition to their busy activities, the two men have never lost sight of each other. They always found a way to keep working together. From their different backgrounds and with all the diverse experiences they have gained, they create a unique sound, and when playing together, it is never clear exactly what will happen. They listen carefully to each other and constantly challenge each other to always come up with beautiful ideas. They often play as a duo, but even the line-up in which they play can be different every time: that is also part of their search for new sounds. However, the listener does not need to have a particularly trained ear to enjoy their music. In the case of Maas and Klein, experiment does not mean that enormously intellectually inaccessible music is created.
