milo Milo Machover was born in 1980 in New York, USA. He grew up in Paris, France, and started playing the flute at the age of 8. From 2003 to 2009 he studied at the Musikhochschule in Freiburg, Germany with Profs. Robert Aitken and Felix Renggli. He has taken part in several projects with the Staatstheater Stuttgart (operas by Michael Hirsch and Richard Ayres) and has been a substitute with several orchestras, including the Norddeutsche Philharmonie Rostock and the Philharmonisches Orchester Kiel. He is a sought-after chamber musician and has performed with many groups, including the flute ensemble Flautomobiland the contemporary music ensemble chronophonie. In addition to his burgeoning career on the modern flute, he has developed a passion for early music. From 2001 to 2007 he was a member of the vocal ensemble Non Papa based in Paris and specialized in 16th century music. Since 2006, he has deepened his understanding of medieval and Renaissance music and developed his modal singing technique through the use of historical solmization as well as mastered the Renaissance transverse flute. He has taken part in numerous projects with Dr. Rebecca Stewart (as a member of Cantus Modalis, concerts in the Netherlands, Germany, Slovenia and South Korea) and Maurice van Lieshout (as a member of Schola Stralsundensis, concerts all over Germany). In addition, he is a founding member of the Ensemble Nusmido,a group of singing instrumentalists dedicated to the historically informed performance of Gregorian chant and early polyphony. He has been teaching the flute in several music schools in Freiburg and in Kiel where he currently lives. In 2011, he was awarded a teaching position for medieval and Renaissance music at the Hochschule für Musik, Frankfurt.
