As half of the electronic noise duo Fe-Mail, Ratkje is no stranger to Chicago. This time her powerful, quirky and sublime voice and electronic tinkering is backed by POING, an Oslo based trio who have become as well known for a repertoire developed by working with a host of young composers as they have for their work as improvisers. Distinguished by their instrumentation, POING has appeared at a number of the major European music festivals including Huddersfield Contemporary Musik Festival (UK), The International Gaudeamus Week (Netherlands), and Klangspuren (Austria) to name but a few.
