Maja SK Ratkje is a Norwegian vocalist and composer. The set is a quadrophonic mix of electronically treated voices and untreated vocal sounds designed as a multichannel, spatialized sound experience taking advantage of the shape and form of Cannon’s Walk.
“Anyone who has seen or heard Ratkje perform live will know what a superb musician she is, and one who can genuinely be said to be extending the expressive range of the voice through technical and technological means…. 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.” The Wire 2006
