Markku Klami's music has been described as delicate, elegant, fragile and powerful with strong emotions.
Born in Turku, Finland, Markku spent his early years singing in the boys choir of Turku Cathedral and later on around Europe on the choir’s tours abroad. Markku has composed instrumental works ranging from solos to works for orchestra with soloists and vocal works including two operas. The use of electronics is a recurring feature in his instrumental works. While being a classically trained composer at Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, Markku has a background in electronic music as well with his projects in the late 1990’s.
Commissioners and performers of Markku's music include Timo Korhonen, Shin-ichi Fukuda, Thomas Müller-Pering, Patrik Kleemola, Lauri Sallinen, Henrik Sandås, Lucy Abrams, International Contemporary Ensemble, Ensemble MISE-EN, Uusinta Ensemble, Avanti Chamber Orchestra, Pori Sinfonietta and conductors including Nils Schweckendiek, David Searle and Atso Almila. His music has been heard in cities from New York to Taipei and Buenos Aires to Rome in festivals including MISE-EN MUSIC, Nordic Music Days, Musica nova Helsinki, Zagreb Music Biennale, Taiwan International Guitar Festival and Atlantic Music Festival.
Residing in Helsinki, Markku draws inspiration from both urban areas and nature. The arid sceneries, the vast seashores and forests serve as an important counterweight for him in our fast-paced culture.
