ANAM Set 2024 Composer: Work Title and Instrumentation to be announced.

About the composer:

Miriama Young (she/her) is an Aotearoa-Australian composer and sound artist based at the University of Melbourne Conservatorium of Music. With a childhood as a cathedral chorister, and teenage years steeped in jazz and blues, her music reveals the influences of numinous ecclesiastical vocal music with the vibrant rhythms and harmonies of jazz. Her work is grounded in ecological concerns of the Anthropocene age.

On a quest for the mysterious and sublime, Miriama’s output ranges from orchestral to chamber music, with works blending electroacoustic elements and field recordings. Her compositions defy genre distinctions, spanning mediums such as film scores, installations, and orchestral works. Her work has been performed by ensembles across the globe, from the Sydney Symphony Orchestra to the Scottish Opera.
