Through her work, Maja aims to explore physiological, psychological, spiritual and communal experiences of music. She is particularly interested in the ability of music to alter our perceptions of time and space and its capacity to affect the body as well as the mind. She draws inspiration from a range of sources including religious, mythological and spiritual texts, notably those of the Sufi poets.
Maja is particularly drawn to interdisciplinary collaborations. She has worked with artists Andrew Bolton on the Newport Empty Shops Project and Bath Fringe Festival in 2010 and 2012, and with Vahag Hamalbashyan for HA-SS Fest in Yerevan, Armenia in 2016. In 2017, she represented Wales at the ISCM World Music Days in Vancouver, Canada.
She is currently based in York, UK, where she is pursuing a PhD in Composition.
