MALM, born in Illinois in 1928, received his BM (1949) and MM (1950) in composition from Northwestern University and his Ph.D. in ethnomusicology from the University of California at Los Angeles (1959). He developed an ethnomusicology program at the University of Michigan (1960-94) which included an ensemble of nagauta and edobayashi. As director of the Stearns Collection of Musical Instruments (1980-94) he expanded its use in education and research.

Among his publications are Nagauta: The Heart of Kabuki Music (1963); Music Cultures of the Pacific, the Near East, and Asia (1966); Six Hidden Views of Japanese Music (1986); and-a joint effort-Theater as Music (1990), in which one act of a bunraku puppet play is examined. As a teacher at Michigan he received the Henry Russel, Alumni Merit, and Legislature awards, and in 1993 he was given the Koizumi Fumio Prize in Ethnomusicology.
