Maja Ratkje - Teip [Ambolthue Records - 2007]

Teip is a twenty minute manic, deranged and often surreal pile-up of sound, noise and music  by Norwegian composer and noise maker Maja Ratkje.

The 3inch disk brings together a selection of recordings from Ratkje analogue Dictaphone which she seems to take everywhere with her. It all starts up with female voice talking, noise seers, music boxes bends and twists. As the 20 minute attack on the sensors continues she throw at you; sped up easy listening, tape unfold, sped up voices, tinkling sentimental piano, weird stuck rhyming fairy tale texts, static stirs, Air plane safety announcements, weird Ratkje singing/ vocal snippets, crackly snarling tones, clapping tones, road noise and all manner of other sound matter arranged into an enjoyable chaos. It feels like dropping into someone’s head for 20 minutes as they go up and down on a speeding and hallucinogenic drug.

A dizzying and manic twenty minute ride sonic that’s scary, surreal, funny, mundane  and entertaining. To find out more and hear samples drop in here.
