Bukseselger by majasolveig

Maja Ratkje composed music for Kjetil Schøien´s documentary drama "Larache" (link to site in Norwegian), that was staged at the Opera in Oslo in October 2011. The texts of "Larache" were based on interviews of four Moroccan men living in Oslo, and fragments of Jean Genet´s novels and plays.

The piece "Bukseselger" (meaning "Pants seller") is uploaded to SoundCloud by Maja Ratkje herself, and in a comment there she says "It's all recorded with real and toy drums, no samples, and the "flute" is a double reed toy instrument. But no score, so in a way, yes, it's improvised".
