Estonian composer, born November 28, 1976, Tallinn.
Sound is central in Mirjam Tally’s creations. Her music brims with playful contrasts – humorous, dramatic and poetic uses of sound are mixed there. So far she has written chamber and electronic music in which acoustic and electronic sounds often interweave. In most cases she uses Nordic or exotic folk instruments (Estonian zither kannel, didgeridoo, tanpura, accordion and others) and treats folkloric sound material with a modernist open mind.
