From the website...
Maja’s unique sound – as evidenced on her CD Shelter (Euredice, 2012) – explores stillness and repetition, harmony and dissonance. Her music balances melody and rhythm with external ambience, acoustics and atmosphere.
“Beautiful, meditative music” (Bergens Tidende)
“Innovative, she crosses artistic borders with great creativity.” (Erlend Loe, Author)
