Ever since the turn of the millennium, Slovenia-born, Vienna resident MAJA OSOJNIK has been running multiple projects involving composition and free improvisation, for her own bands, theatre, and dance. She may be little known on this side of the Atlantic, but she is well established on the European circuit, where she has done everything in the course of her relatively short career, from Early music (with Ensemble Mikado) to traditional folk song, electroacoustic improvisation (with RDEČA RAKETA, also on the bill of this 33rd FIMAV), and avant-garde rock (with Broken.Heart.Collector).
In 2016, OSOJNIK released her solo debut Let Them Grow, a powerful cycle of dystopian songs, anti-pop music that draws from countless influences, among them cabaret, post-punk, musique concrète, and jazz. And she has been presenting this rich material on stage in three very different formats: solo, duo, and with her MAJA OSOJNIK BAND. Under that last guise – the most thorough and fulfilling – Let Them Grow becomes « All.The.Terms.We.Are. ». Meet your next music discovery.
