press comments

"[...] la matern dimostra così grande sensibilità nel plasmare la propria musica lavorando per sottrazione e al contempo amplificando strutture compositive il cui incedere lento restituisce la forza discreta di una fragilità sospesa, densa di pathos. "
raffaello russo for music won't safe you [musicwontsaveyou.com] go to source!



"[...] Il risultato di questa nuova via è una narrazione più calda, dal sapore cinematico e dai tratti onirici che trova nelle linee maggiormente strutturate del piano il suo tono romantico e nell’enfasi della voce della Matern il suo pathos.
Ci ha nuovamente spiazzati Maike Zazie, riuscendo però ad incantarci ancora  con la delicatezza e la fragilità della sua musica.

phil for norman records gave five stars & calls it "album of the week" (8th october 2010) ! [www.normanrecords.com]go to source!

"matern’s mastery of the piano and her classical training are highlighted, the melodies are deep and powerful, as well as possessing an exceptional beauty. regen:tropfen is an exquisite modern classical work which introduces maike zazie matern as an exceptional talent whose star is surely on the rise."
adam williams for fluid radio

"The resulting album [regen:tropfen] is a masterpiece. [...] Hearing an album as original as regen:tropfen helps to remind one that there are still unexplored regions of music to be pioneered. Matern is just the kind of girl we want at the head of that expedition, too [...]."

"there’s something incredibly warm and inviting about regen:tropfen, like trailing your hands in a stream on a warm day."
joshua meggitt for cyclic defros

"ms. zazie has a way with creating the most hauntingly brilliant minimalist structures. and out of their cold 'absent-lifed' tone's she brings warmth, profound beauty, and overall understanding of the importance of each and every 'small aspect' from life as we know it. "
