MAAPS is the newest musical endeavor of twin brothers Andrew and Michael Baird from Buffalo, NY. Looking to go in a different direction from the intricate performances of their other project Hexamatastrophe, a self-proclaimed "eclectic theater band," the two have moved into a much simpler form of musical expression. In their search for simplicity they found themselves using just a synthesizer and affected vocals.

     Using this set up they create ambient music that is both hypnotically relaxing and inspirational. By being improvisational in their live performances every song becomes it's own unique life, living only for it's duration, and a manifestation of the genuine expression of two musicians in the vulnerable atmosphere of the stage fostering an intimacy between performer and audience.
