Ikue Mori and Maja S. K. Ratkje
Please note that a new album by Ikue Mori (laptop) and Maja Ratkje (electronics, voice) has been released!
"Scrumptious Sabotage" (Bocian Records 2013) contain live recordings from Belfast (31 March) and Ulverston (29 March) 2012, all made into a really fine piece of varied music in the impro-noise field
Let me just steal this from Bocian´s site:
"In these carefully crafted, long and nuanced compositions , both artists maneuver between meditative, ritual areas and irregular, elusive noise blots. The most astonishing element of this superb performance is the realization that even though the compositions are entirely intuitive, created without any previous planning, guidelines or negotations, the listener can sense a nearly palpable sense of deep connection and understanding between the artists".
You have to fight for one of the 250 copies on black vinyl, 100 on orange vinyl, or go for the CD.
I have had no problems when ordering from Bocian, quick delivery and all.
Cover design: Lasse Marhaug.
