Kirsten Milenko (b. 1993) is an Australian composer based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Working closely with movement, her music embodies a constant synergy between sound and motion to capture perceptions of space. This has led to a consistent development of music across the performance arts in both acoustic and electroacoustic settings.
Milenko has recently been selected for the Roche Young Commission 2021 by Wolfgang Rihm, Artistic Director of Lucerne Festival. In March 2020, her opera/ballet ‘Dalloway’ premieres at Pulsar Festival in Copenhagen. She has recently been shortlisted for the composition of a new opera at the Mannheim National Theatre, Germany. She is a represented artist with the Australian Music Centre.
Her music has received ongoing international performances by ensembles and orchestras including: Danish National Vocal Ensemble, Esbjerg Ensemble, Scandinavian Guitar Duo, Ensemblage, E-Mex Ensemble, Judgement of Paris Quartet, Adelaide Wind Orchestra, Sydney Conservatorium of Music Wind Symphony, Modest Orchestra. She has performed her own work as a pianist at venues such as: Staatsoper Hamburg - Opera Stabile, Associació Cultural Sa Taronja; and conductor at Verbrugghen Hall and the Royal Danish Academy of Music.
