Amanda Martikainen

Amanda Martikainen, born and raised in Sodankylä, Finland, works as a composer and sound designer with focus on digital media in Berlin. She studied classical voice, piano and composition at the Hochschule für Musik “Hanns Eisler” Berlin and at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater “Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy” Leipzig.

In 2021 Martikainen looks towards three premières; her piece “Dedushka Kosmos” (dir. Sasha Davydova) will be performed in April at Maxim Gorki Theater Berlin, “Konflikt” (dir. Rasmus Slätis) in June at Hanko, Finland as well as “Don Quixote – which was a dream”, which will be taking place as an interactive digital format in Berlin in autumn.

In her artistic work she focuses on the fusion of electric instrumentation, blending vocal and classical elements effortlessly in her music. In January 2020, the fully composed “öin ja päivin” dance piece was premiered at Folklandia Festival Finland. In July 2020, her newly arranged folk music pieces for classical orchestra were performed at the “Luosto Classic” Festival in Luosto, Lapland. In October 2020 her track “Soitto” was included in the category “Unexpected Sounds” of the Berlin Music Awards.

Amanda Martikainen holds the scholarship of the Finnish Music Board for modern composers.
