Mirjam Tally

“Sound is central in Tally’s creations. Her music is a flow of playful contrasts where a sense of humour and poetic use of sound are blended to mix. Beside writing works for contemporary music scene, she is active as a film composer. Her earlier works are mainly for chamber ensembles and electronics. In recent years, importance of orchestral music has increased in her oeuvre. Sometimes she uses elements of jazz, folk and pop, Nordic or exotic instruments (Estonian kannel, didgeridoo, tanpura, accordion and others) and treats sound material with a modernist open mind.

She has graduated from the Estonian Academy of Music as a student of Lepo Sumera in 2000. Since 2006, Tally lives on the island of Gotland, Sweden. In 2009-2010, she was Composer in Residence at Swedish Radio P2 channel. Since 2012, her orchestra works are published by Gehrmans Musikförlag.” www.mirjamtally.com

Submission to ‘Ekho:: Toward a Repetitive Sounding of Difference’

 

 

Breathe (2005) is realized at Visby International Centre for Composers, in Studio Alpha and it was part of the NOMUS scholarship. This work was premiered at Dark Music Days festival on Iceland in 2006. I have used pre-recorded flute sounds (mostly tongue-ram’s and breathing inhale/exhale) which I have processed in Pro Tools (mostly using transpose and reverse). These original flute sounds are recorded with Estonian flutist Monika Mattiesen at the electroacoustic studio of Estonian Academy of Music.

Sexing Sound: Symposium & Exhibition

Sexing Sound: Music Cultures, Audio Practices, and Contemporary Art & Sexing Sound: Aural Archives and Feminist Scores at CUNY Center for the Humanities, New York Feb/March 2014.

Annea Lockwood

“Pop and rock music has long been an important forum for experimentation with gendered performance, audience identification, and different models of authorship and collaboration. What happens, we ask, when the complex affective and social dynamics of popular music cultures are put into a dialogue with more rarified notions of audio cultures or sound art? Taking the issue of sexual difference and sexuality as its central concern, this symposium brings together an international group of artists, writers, educators and curators to address the gendered complexes of “music cultures,” “audio practices,” and where these two realms intersect in contemporary art. Presentation topics include the feminist sound archive Her Noise, women in early punk, the voice, and the soundscape.” read more via CUNY website
