Maggi Payne is a composer, flutist, recording engineer/editor and video artist. Payne began studying flute at the age of nine and attended Interlochen National Music Camp and Aspen Music School.

From the moment she first heard a flute, she insisted on learning the instrument. Although she has a thorough background in classical music, from a very early age she was drawn to "new music" and extended techniques. She started working on Varese's Density 21.5 as soon as she could hit the high "d"s," and has specialized in performing the newest music available. While at Northwestern, Elise Ross (voice), Daniel Stepner (violin), Peter Takacs (piano) and she formed a new music improvisatory group which was very active. She has continued to pursue extended techniques, broadening the scope to include recording techniques and electronic processing.

This title, originally issued on the CRI label, is now available for order from New World Records as an on-demand CD (CD-R). It can also be downloaded in MP3/320, FLAC and/or WAV format(s).
