Maja Ratkje - "Voice"

"All sound on Voice originates from Maja Ratkje's throat, though it has been much manipulated, processed, torn, stretched, pitch-shifted and who knows what else. The human voice is as close to home as an instrument can be and the impression of this music is of naked immediacy despite its manipulation. But that immediacy does not result in yet another restatement of the known but in revelations of strangeness, of travels beyond the known".

CD released by Rune Grammofon in 2002.
