Kirsten Milenko (b.1993) is an Australian composer based in Copenhagen, Denmark. An architectural approach to music, Milenko sculpts melody from artefact inflections to create a specified 'environmental' space within sound. In December 2017, her single ‘Ex Aere’ released on Spotify, Bandcamp and iTunes. Her debut album is scheduled for release in November 2018.

Both her concert music and electroacoustic work grounds inspiration on structures found within environmental cycles, architecture, literature, philosophy, fable, and other performance art mediums. Recently, Kirsten has worked with musicians, choreographers and installation artists within Australia, Europe and the United States.

Currently she studies at the Royal Danish Academy of Music with composers Niels Rosing-Schow and Simon Løffler after having studied with Liza Lim, Natasha Anderson, Ursula Caporali and Rosalind Page during her Bachelor’s degree at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music where she is a recipient of the 2017 Ignaz Friedman Memorial Prize. [Full biography]
