Haywyre consists of Martin Vogt, who has been studying piano since the age of six. His interest in the production of various genres of electronic music and piano instrumentals began growing when he lived in Austria; there, he was exposed to jazz and hip-hop for the first time. Shortly after moving back to the U.S. in 2008, Haywyre was created. Now, his mission can be defined by providing his listeners with music that presents variety, originality, and ideas stemming from his jazz and classical knowledge base. The most general description to Martin’s sound can be described as memorable melodies and (jazz / classically influenced) chord progressions in the context of progressive electronic music. Synthetic and organic elements combine in works inspired by artists such as Noisia, Flying Lotus, KOAN Sound, Hans Zimmer, Clint Mansell, Austin Peralta, and Abdullah Ibrahim. His main compositional tool is the piano; countless nights are spent drafting harmonic and melodic outlines by improvising. For live performances, Haywyre also includes his akai mpk 88 to perform the melodies while triggering the stems to the rest of the pieces. His guitar work can also be heard in many tracks (and sometimes other instruments, such as the Duduk, as well). So far, he has mastered every release himself (except the Draw The Line EP).
