In the tradition: A L’ARME! kicks off with an electro-acoustic Solo magic! Norwegian avant-garde composer and improviser Maja S.K. Ratkje belongs to Europe’s most saught-after insider tips and will present one of her rare Solo performances for vocals and electronics on the 1st August! The Wire claims: “Her work is celebratory and inclusive, an energising rallying call to those who are curious enough to peek out from behind the curtain of mainstream mediocrity.”

Ranging from compositional movie — and chamber music-related activities — such as with the all-star group SPUNK – to improvisational collaborations with international sound-artists such as Lasse Marhaug, Joëlle Léandre, Zeena Parkins or Stephen O’Malley, her musical approach is highly experimental, virtuosic and challenging in a very charming way. Welcome, Maja, to A L’ARME! Festival Vol VI!

1st August, Radialsystem V

MAJA S.K. RATKJE (NO) — voice, electronics
