Kirsten Milenko (b.1993) is an Australian composer based in Copenhagen, Denmark. An architectural approach to music, Milenko sculpts melody from artefact inflections to establish associations of space within sound. Her concert music and electroacoustic work grounds inspiration on structures found within environmental cycles, architecture, literature, philosophy, fable, and other performance art mediums.
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. Her debut album ‘Caeli’ releases in April 2019.
