Using unsettling noise, distressed screams, hand made electronics and found objects pushed through pedals, AJA's industrial beats and distorted drone, combined with a psycho-visceral, intense performance challenges the audience by breaking down barriers and pushing limits sonically and visually.
AJA has so far played live on NTS Radio and after making sound scores for artist Joey Holder for ‘Ophiux’ and ‘ADCREDO’ she won The Oram Award funded by PRS foundation celebrating innovative music production.
AJA ’s self titled debut album released with Opal Tapes deploys rhythmic noise, bomb heavy drum machine, convolving vocal utterance and a dedicated hell-scape of field recordings, abrupt sound design and blistering drone. These recordings feel expelled rather than composed, a lashing of energy captured. The unhinged nature of her recorded work is complimented in what are soon becoming legendary live performances wherein the AJA experience is fully realised. AJA also featured on Perc's album “Bitter Music” on the track “Spit” in 2017.
As a collaborator with designer LU LA LOOP, AJA’s sounds have bruised the runway of Berlin Alternative Fashion Week. Her work within the LGBTQ+ community running workshops in sound art and as an advocate of promoting and increasing the presence of women in electronic music, has seen her work and performances carry throughout Europe and more recently to Brazil. It is in within the context of transgressive art, sexual identity/ politic and grass roots teaching that AJA’s work is elevated into a neo-punk
“Her experimentation with field recordings and the limits of sound make for a captivating sonic experience, while the attention to the visual is reminiscent of the theatricality of artists such as Peaches.” – The Quietus
