Miriama Young is a composer, sound artist and writer on the faculty of University of Melbourne Conservatorium of Music.

Her scholarly work examines the human voice and recording technology. A monograph on this subject, Singing the Body Electric (Ashgate) is listed in the Times Higher Education Best Books of 2015.

Miriama’s work occurs through physical engagement in sound art installations (Solstice Lamp, an interactive sound and light experience for Vivid Sydney 2013); through opera (Zen Storyfor Scottish Opera); or art song (Inner Voices of Blue); spoken word (The Prime Cut; 1,000 Kisses; Speak Volumes); using new technologies in conjunction with the voice (Chatterbox, Titlipur); representations of the synthesised voice and its mimicry (The Point of Contact); and explores voiceless music (Speechless – The Polar Realm).

Miriama’s instrumental and vocal works are performed by ensembles stretching from Norway to New Zealand. Her music is commissioned and programmed in the USA, UK, New Zealand, Europe and Australia.
