“The cross-over artists Maja Ratkje
and Jaap Blonk
complement one another with sounds that are by no means everyday sounds. Together, these vocal artists - he from the Netherlands, she from Norway - reduce the divide between words and music. In the acoustic performances of this duo, no sound is fixed in their improvisations. By using the voice as an instrument they have gone further than anyone else in extreme vocal art experimentation. Jaap Blonk is a voice artist, sound poet and musician. In his poetry and his experiments he is part of the Dada tradition. Vocalist, violinist and theremin player Maja Ratkje goes even further than Björk in the art of song. Ratkje’s music has been used in dance productions as well as in the theater and films.”
