Monika Mattiesen is focused on electroacoustic sound experiments as a composer and interpreting contemporary music as a flutist. From her solo concerts, the ensemble Cyberstudio (Küberstuudio) has grown out (2000), where the main aim of the flutist is to synthesize electronic music with other art fields (light, video, painting, dance, literature, film). In Paris, Mattiesen has prepared works by Saariaho, Manoury, Fedele, Jodlowski and other composers while residing in IRCAM. In 2004, Monika Mattiesen performed Philippe Manoury’s electroacoustic magnum opus “Jupiter” at IRCAM / Acanthes Master course, assisted by the composer. Monika Mattiesen has recorded and premiered many new works for flute that have been written specially for her. She is the artistic director of international new music festival “Afekt” held in Tartu and Tallinn.

Vox Clamantis is an internationally renowned vocal ensemble conducted by Jaan-Eik Tulve. The ensemble consists of musicians passionate about the Gregorian chant, which is considered the beginning of European art music. In addition to that Vox Clamantis frequently performs early polyphony and contemporary music, or combines Gregorian chant with jazz or world music. Vox Clamantis have been awarded the Grammy award for Pärt’s Adam’s Lament (ECM New Series, 2013) and Le Diapason d’Or for Liszt’s Via Crucis (Mirare, 2013). The 2016 album “Arvo Pärt. The Deer’s Cry” has already been granted the Diapason d’Or award as well as the Estonian Music Award as the best classical recording. Many Estonian composers have written music for Vox Clamantis and this will the repertoire performed at their EMD concert.
