Beautiful, meditative soundscapes blending everyday sounds, melody and improvisation and working with the natural ambience and acoustics of the performance space.
Maja Bugge is a Norwegian cellist and composer currently based in Lancaster. She creates and performs music inspired by the simultaneously beautiful and brutal landscapes of the north of Norway, where she was born and brought up. 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)
