Rdeca Raketa (Red Rocket) comprises of Maja Osojnik and Matija Schellander, both internationally active musicians and composers based in Vienna. Rdeca Raketa is characterized by a high degree of individuality which is dedicated above all to the artful examination of the phenomenon of sound. What is presented by the twosome appears like a machine that has become a pulsating sound structure, constantly busy with itself in the context of electro-acoustics, creating sound collages shimmering in threatening and gloomy colours. Questions about any stylistic positioning into a certain musical category are basically obsolete, since the Viennese twosome defines itself within a tonal space in which traditional or any other notions are no longer really effective. Rdeca Raketa create a cinematic sound painting one simply has to deal with.

Rdeca Raketa performed live at various festivals and clubs in Austria, Slovenia, Switzerland, Hungary, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Croatia,  Serbia, South Korea and Canada.
