Maja Bugge: Suite for Seabirds

Maja Bugge: Suite for Seabirds

Concerts

Internationally acclaimed cellist and composer Maja Bugge comes to the Peter Scott Gallery with a solo performance interacting with the Forough exhibition.

Maja will perform her new work commissioned by the European City of Culture, using motifs and rhythms from the songs of declining Arctic seabirds.

Like Sena Başöz, Maja explores the traces of movement and loss in a rapidly changing bird population. This will be a powerful, one-off opportunity to experience this installation through a musical score. Be amongst the first to hear this important and relevant new work by Maja Bugge.

Maja Bugge is a Norwegian cellist and composer based in Lancaster. Since 1998 she has created a large body of work both as a solo artist and in collaboration with others. Her work has been commissioned by Manchester Jazz festival, Lancaster Arts, Full of Noises, National Theatre Oslo and Jazz North.

“Maja Bugge’s music is activism.”
