Elektronika is a new project which aims to develop a historiography of electronic music in Malta. This subject was first discussed at Circuits 2020 during a talk about the history of electronic music produced in Malta.

This project was officially launched to the public on Saturday, the 6th of February 2021 at Studio A, Spazju Kreattiv, Valletta.

Introducing Elektronika

Michael Bugeja together with Dr. Toni Sant are the project’s research co-ordinators. During this event, they talked about the current crowd-sourcing research phase of the project. Elektronika is being curated digitally through a section in the M3P Foundation website. This event was presented and moderated by Edwin Balzan.

Guest Interviews and Performance

The experimental music artist Kurt Buttigieg was interviewed about his participation to this project. He explained how Maltese electronic music artists and even himself can contribute to the research phase of this project.

This event’s guest performer was none other than the renowned Maltese electronic music producer, Justin Meli also known as Sonitus Eco. He provided us with a DJ set which featured fresh new material from his forthcoming album.

Who are the partners in this project?

This project is managed by Electronic Music Malta in conjunction with the M3P Foundation and is supported by the Arts Council Malta.

This event is part of the Spazju Kreattiv and Circuits Programmes.
