Originally interested in the saxophone, his work has expanded to include computer music and instruments of his own design that incorporate open-circuits, samplers, radio transmission, and other electronics. He has been an active musician and organizer in Portland, Oregon and New York City, and currently lives and works in Saint Petersburg, Florida.
Composer KATARINA MILJKOVIC investigates interaction between science, music and nature through collaborative musical performance. This interest led her to the mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot's essay "The Fractal Geometry of Nature" and self-similar complex structures resulting in the cycle, Forest, a dreamy piece, along the lines of Feldman or Brown. Entirely captivating." (Signal to Noise). Her generative music has been described as "a refined, hypnotic dream" (Danas), "a work of musical and visual slow-motion with only a few delicately elaborated musical metaphors" (Radio Belgrade), "an ambient tone poem... that moved hypnotically through the sonic frame" (Lucid Culture). Miljkovic has been on the faculty at the New England Conservatory of Music since 1996 and is the recipient of the Louis Krasner and Lawrence Lesser award for excellence in teaching.
