Maja Ratkje live Paris 2008

Live performance Paris, March 30th, 2008
Duration: 34:07

Personal recording at Maison de Radio France,
During GRM 2008 ‘Présences Electroniques’ festival

Vocal sounds only+live electronic processing by an enchantress of the genre, Norvegian Maja Ratkje. Expect undecipherable utterings, abstract sound treatments, extreme dynamics, and total mastery of up-to-date audio trickeries (real-time sampler, sound effects a go-go and what not). Beauty arises amid chaotic voice samples, from angelic whisperings to grotesque Karius & Baktus impersonations. But let it be said, this is more in concrete music territory than sound poetry or improvisation. As with many young musicians touring Europe nowadays, the level of technicity is impressive, but virtuoso Ratkje has her own agenda and never forgets what makes music unforgettable: to be moving and to be going somewhere. Hats off, Maja!

    Bonjour,
    Je suis à la recherche d’un enregistrement du concert de Pan Sonic de la Villette juste avant Throbbing Gristle. Si vous aviez ou connaissiez qqun qui aurait… J’ai celui de leur précédent concert au Nouveau Casino (de la table et non du public) si cela peut intéresser.
    A+,
    HOP

    PS : Merci pour le Maja Ratkje, ce qu’elle fait est vraiment très beau.
