** longtime sold out at source, few copies restocked ** A fairy tale world comes to life in sublime fashion on Maja Ratkje’s latest collaboration Adventura Anatomica, a musical work for theatre she created with choreographer/danser Odd Johan Fritzøe and stage designer in November 2005. This is a world of bittersweet fairytales, of wolves and innocent maidens losing their way in a dark wood, a world of fear and despair and joyful ecstasy. In any case, emotions such as these coexist closely in Ratkje’s world. On AA she deploys her entire vocal arsenal: whispering softly, cooing, emitting deep throat sounds usually culminating in an overwhelming vocal deluge. Her vocal outpourings are amplified through electronica, creating a blazing dialogue between her own voices. Øyvind Brandtsegg created a live sampling instrument called ImproSculpt especially for the purpose and Ratkje knows like no other how to make it serve her needs.
