Born in Canada upon her mother’s return from two years of studying literature abroad, Maya Mdwara Decter was raised in the prairie capital of Winnipeg, Manitoba on a steady diet of new wave music and hearty irish cuisine. Inspired by neoplatonic philosophy at the University of Winnipeg, and seeking to offend her father, Decter rejected rock and roll and embraced by turns the classic minimalism of Steve Reich, Terry Riley and Philip Glass, the electronic sounds of Aphex Twin U-ziq Plug Goldie, and the free-jazz explorations of John Coltrane, Eric Dolphy and Albert Ayler.
