Kali Malone

The compositions of Kali Malone implement specific tuning systems in minimalist structure for pipe organ, choir, chamber music ensembles, and electroacoustic formats. Malone’s music is rich with harmonic texture through synthetic and acoustic instrumentation in repetitive motions and extended durations. The music emits distinct emotive, dynamic, and affective hues which bring forth a stunning depth of focus.

Malone’s 2019 critically acclaimed album ’The Sacrificial Code’ is a major work featuring almost two hours of concentrated pipe organ pieces with profound emotional resonance. With its slow, purified, and seemingly austere qualities, ‘The Sacrificial Code’ guides us through an almost trance-inducing process where we become vulnerable receptors for every slight movement, where every miniature shift in sound becomes magnified through stillness. As such, it’s a uniquely satisfying exercise in transcendence through self-restraint, a striking realization of ideas borne out of academic and conceptual rigor which gradually reveals profound personal dimensions. It has a perception-altering quality that encourages self-exploration free of signposts and without a preordained endpoint.


Yosuke Fujita, also known as FUJI||||||||||TA is a sound artist, organist and composer based in Japan. The crux of his performances is his hand-built pipe organ, an instrument, which Fujita based on the traditional Japanese musical concept of GAGAKU, a slow and elegant form of classical music found in the 7th century.
