Malle Maltis

Eesti Muusika- ja Teatriakadeemia Tallinn


In Malle Maltis's piece Polyvox the new meets the old as the centuries-long tradition of classical instrument playing is brought into contact with the modern tools of electronic music – technology which will surely influence the future of the artform. Malle Maltis began her musical studies with recorder and oboe at the Georg Ots Music School in Tallinn in 1995. In 1999, she continued with composition at the Estonian Academy of Music with Professor Eino Tamberg, and is now continuing her Masters studies in composition at the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre with Professor Toivo Tulev. The years 2005-2006 she spent in Italy, studying music and new technology with Roberti Doati, Giorgio Klauer and Paolo Pachini at the Conservatorio G. Tartini in Trieste. In 2007/2008 she followed the ECMCT course (European Course in Musical Composition with Technologies, coordinated by Ircam) in Helsinki (Sibelius Academy) and in Barcelona (Esmuc). Her compositions include works for various chamber groups, string orchestras, music for solo instruments, a number of electro-acoustic compositions, and music for film.
