Kali Malone (b. 1994, Colorado) is an American-Swedish musician and composer based between Stockholm and Paris. Her compositions implement specific tuning systems in minimalist structure for pipe organ, choir, chamber music ensembles, and electroacoustic formats. Kali’s music is rich with harmonic texture through synthetic and acoustic instrumentation in repetitive motions and extended durations. The music emits distinct emotive and affective hues which bring forth a stunning depth of focus.
Kali Malone has performed extensively in Europe and North America at Musica Festival, Berlin Atonal, Moogfest, Kanal Pompidou, Intonal, Presences Electroniques, Le Guess Who, the Meakusma Festival, and Sonic Acts. Her commission projects and residencies include the Ina GRM, Berlin Monom & Funkhaus, The Richard Thomas Foundation, MACBA, Macadam Ensemble, Orgelpark, Elektronmusikstudion and Tempo Reale. She collaborates and performs with various artists, including Drew McDowall, Caterina Barbieri, Stephen O’Malley, Ellen Arkbro, Puce Mary, Zach Rowden, Leila Bordreuil, and Lucy Railton. In 2016 she co-founded the record label and concert series XKatedral, together with Maria W Horn, in Stockholm.
