Maja S.K. Ratkje


Maja Solveig Kjelstrup Ratke is a Norwegian new music / folk / noise / electronics / voice-manipulating composer. The sleevenotes to her album 'River Mouth Echoes' (Tzadik, 2008) point out that her work "ranges from noise infernos and full orchestra to quiet improv and accoustic solos." We can also detect the heavy influences of Berio (especially Visage) and other '60s musique concrete / electronic composition. In 2001 she was the first composer ever to receive the Arne Nordheim Distinction Award. Read more on Last.fm
