Through her work, Maja aims to explore physiological, psychological, spiritual and communal experiences of music. Her main interest is the creation of immersive, inclusive, concept-based works. She is particularly drawn to interdisciplinary collaborations and public art, striving to take contemporary music out of the concert hall and into the public realm.
She has worked with artists Andrew Bolton on the 2010 Newport Empty Shops Project, Bath Fringe Festival in 2012, and on an immersive installation project in 2019, and with Vahag Hamalbashyan for HA-SS Fest in Yerevan, Armenia in 2016. In 2017, she collaborated with dancer Marega Palser on a 6-hour performance piece at Newport Riverfront in Wales. That same year, she represented Wales at the ISCM World Music Days in Vancouver, Canada.
She currently divides her time between Finland and the UK, where she is pursuing a PhD in Composition at the University of York.
