Kali Malone is an American composer and musician based in Stockholm since 2012. Her solo works implement unique tuning systems in minimalist form for analog and digital synthesis often combined with acoustic instrumentation—such as pipe organ, string and wind instruments, lute and gong. Using synthetic and acoustic instrumentation, Malone’s rich harmonic textures emit a distinct emotive hue serving to generate a static and captivating depth of focus.
This appearance at Norbergfestival sees Kali Malone presenting two new multichannel pieces inside Mimerlaven; the first piece is a collection of isorhythmic canons for pipe organ tuned in the 18th century temperament Kirnberger III. The second piece combines piercing tuned electronics accompanied by Yair Elazar Glotman live on contrabass.
Her most recent releases Cast of Mind and Organ Dirges 2016-2017 are singular recordings of electronic and acoustic drones, joined in a highly personal and dark, emotive language.
Malone is active in the groups Sorrowing Christ, and Upper Glossa with Caterina Barbieri. Her releases can be found on Ascetic House, Bleak Environment, Hallow Ground, Total Black, and the label she co-operates, XKatedral.
