Kali Malone (b. 1994) is an American-Swedish composer and musician based in Stockholm. 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 and extended durations. The music emits distinct emotive, dynamic, affective hues which bring a stunning depth of focus. 

Kali has released several critically acclaimed albums, notably The Sacrificial Code (Ideal Recordings, 2019). She has performed extensively at Musica Festival, Berlin Atonal, Moogfest, Kanal Pompidou, Intonal, Presences Electroniques, Le Guess Who, the Meakusma Festival, and Sonic Acts. Kali’s 2020 commission projects and residencies included Ina GRM, Berlin Monom & Funkhaus, The Richard Thomas Foundation, MACBA, Orgelpark, and her first premiere feature-length film score “Inland” at Gothenburg Film Festival. 

Kali 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 Kali co-founded the record label and concert series XKatedral, together with Maria W Horn, in Stockholm. Kali studied the Bachelors and Masters in Electroacoustic Composition at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm. She apprenticed in pipe organ tuning under the mentorship of J. Börjeson.
