Maja Matić (1986, Serbia) was born in Subotica, where she obtained her elementary and secondary musical education. She continued her education at the Music Academy in Banjaluka (Bosnia) at the Department of Composition with Prof. Tatjana Milošević Miljanović. During her studies she held the position of a teaching assistant at the Department of Composition, and also participated in sound processing and writing music for the documentary films made by the students at the Film Department.
Her works are based on the music of acoustic instruments, and in 2009, her tape music was preformed for the first time at the festival “KoMA ‘6” in Belgrade. Her compositions were performed on multiple occasions at the “Days of Vlada S. Milošević” music event in Banjaluka. Currently, she is living and working in Banjaluka.
The composition Insectument (2011) was created with the aim to be reminiscent of the composition Bagzz (2011) for the solo violin, because of the need to expand the sound and the spectrum of colours, resulting in a multidimensional impression. Evoking the insect and the space where it finds itself and moves, opens a variety of options in expression and inventiveness. Using the combination of figures in the lines of five instruments and the voice as an ambient description, a consonance is formed in the shape of a homogenous tone. By not classifying it as program music, the composition should be brought to life as a movement, a moving sound as opposed to something static.
