Out of stock

The debut solo album from founding Spunk member and composer Maja Ratkje has secured her a place among the finest experimental singers. From the weird and furious to the enchanting and beautiful, this is an album rich in atmosphere, color and creative madness. First released on CD in 2002 and now available on vinyl for the first time, this is a central release in Rune Grammofon's catalogue and is an essential item in any record collection of experimental music. Composer, singer, electronic manipulator -- and sometimes, violinist and theremin player -- Maja Solveig Kjelstrup Ratkje (born 1973) has exceptionally impressive credentials. Her compositions have been performed in more than 30 countries including Germany, France, Italy, Great Britain, Austria, the Netherlands, Japan, USA and the Sc2andinavian countries. Performers include distinguished ensembles such as Oslo Sinfonietta and Cikada and Vertavo string quartets. Her teachers have included great contemporary composers like Sofia Gubaidulina, Louis Andriessen, Klaus Huber and Kaija Saariaho, and her own works have won international and Norwegian prizes. She has recorded and performed with a myriad of musicians, among them Ikue Mori, Zeena Parkins, Sylvie Courvoisier, Lasse Marhaug, Paal Nilssen-Love, Poing, members of Enslaved and of course Spunk, the all-female improv quartet she co-founded in 1999 and who have released six albums on Rune Grammofon, including the impressive Das Wohltemperierte Spunk 6CD box set
