Voice, the movie

A Berlin based film team has followed my work over some years, and the movie was premiered at Cinemateket, Trondheim 2015.

The title is: Voice – Sculpting Sound with Maja S. K. Ratkje. A film by IJ. Biermann and Kai Miedendorp.

The pictures in the heading of this blog are all stills from the film.

From director Ingo Biermann’s site:

A cinematic feature documentary about Norwegian composer and performer Maja Ratkje. It is not only the portrait of a singular musician and singer, but the film will explore the sound and the nature of the human voice in all its facets.

…mit Maja Solveig Kjelstrup Ratkje, Frode Haltli, Joëlle Léandre, Kathy Hinde, Kristin Andersen, Hild Sofie Tafjord, Else Olsen Storesund, Håvard Skaset, Guro Skumsnes Moe, Mitgliedern von Trondheim Sinfonietta, Sylvie Courvoisier, Ikue Mori, Alessandro Olla u.a.

    Hi! I know which one it is. It’s on this record: Passing Images released on ECM in 2007. Thanks!

    Maja, thanks for the reply.
    I listened to ET OS, and it is wonderful. But, unfortunately, it is not the piece I was inquiring about.

    I was looking for the piece that starts at 4 minutes and 40 seconds in the video. I love the melody, and I can’t get it out of my head.

    Yes, absolutely beautiful! Ser ut som om det kommer til å bli den vakreste og mest inspirerende dokumentar! Så flott! Håper du roper høyt og i god tid om når og hvor den skal sendes! Nydelige er dere, hele gjengen!

    Hi, many thanks! The piece is aopn a disk with Trondheim Sinfonietta, the CD is called Snowblind, it features composers from that region in Norway: Trøndelag. And my piece is called ET OS. It’s with a reader too. I am conducting after the text in my headphones.

    Absolutely beautiful. Wonderful work.

    Is there a recording of the strings piece starting at 4:40 in the video?
