Meet the musician reimagining organ music.
Words by Tom Faber. Photography by Luc Braquet.

According to Kali Malone, it’s when her own compositions send her to sleep that they’re ready for the public. But while her music is certainly meditative, some may struggle to drift off to the massive slabs of sound, austere drones and minimal melodies that bloom from the speaker and slowly take over the whole room.

After growing up in Colorado, Malone moved to Stockholm at 18 and studied electro-acoustic composition. Now 26, she has quietly taken the experimental music world by storm with her 2019 album, The Sacrificial Code—a two-hour-long series of mournful pipe organ compositions. When we speak on the phone, she’s in Paris, where she’s spending a few weeks recording in her dream studio.
