Monika Mattiesen (b. 1966) 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). Monika Mattiesen studied flute at the Tallinn Music High School with Elmar Peäske and at the Tallinn State Conservatory with Jaan Õun. Her master degree was acquired at the Latvian Academy of Music with Vilnis Strautiņš. In 2005, she started PhD studies in composition with Toivo Tulev and Helena Tulve. In Paris, Mattiesen has prepared works by Saariaho, Manoury, Fedele, Jodlowski and other composers residing in IRCAM. In 2004, Monika Mattiesen performed Philippe Manoury’s electroacoustic magnum opus “Jupiter” at IRCAM / Acanthes master course, assisted by the composer. Mattiesen has performed in numerous European countries, additionally in USA and Columbia, both as a soloist and chamber musician. Monika Mattiesen has recorded and premiered many new works for flute that have been written especially for her: by Tõnu Kõrvits, Mart Siimer, Toivo Tulev, Mirjam Tally, Timo Steiner, Margo Kõlar, Märt-Matis Lill, Jüri Reinvere, etc. She is the artistic director of the international contemporary music festival “Afekt” held in Tartu and Tallinn.
