Biography

Maija Hynninen (b. 1977) – composer and sound artist – incorporates in her work the human voice, live electronics and multidisciplinary performances. She entered the Sibelius Academy in 2003 (MA 2011) to study with Paavo Heininen while also working for a violin diploma at the Norwegian Academy of Music. She has added to her studies an ERASMUS exchange year in Staatliche Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst Stuttgart with Oliver Schneller. The studies in electronics continued at IRCAM Cursus 2012–13.
Hynninen writes virtuoso parts for the musicians yet captures a sence of lightness of texture. The music is often governed by linear thinking while the harmony gravitates towards quartertones. The textures often combine noise and pitch which result in ambiguity of timbre. Her future works include chamber and orchestral music as well as works for soloist and small ensemble and live electronics.
