Stefan Maier (b. 1990) is a composer based in Vancouver, Canada — the unceded traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. His compositions, installations, and performances, examine emergent and historical sound technologies. Highlighting material instability and unruliness, his work explores the flows of sonic matter through sound systems, instruments, software, and bodies, to uncover alternate modes of authorship and listening possible within specific technologically-mediated situations. Stefan works fluidly between contemporary classical music, sound art, experimental electronic music and installation. His work has been presented by Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Kunsthal Aarhus, Ultima festival, SPOR festival, G(o)ng Tomorrow, and Gaudeamus Muziekweek, among many others. In 2017 he received a Mayor’s Art Award from the City of Vancouver and is a 2019 Macdowell Colony Fellow. Stefan currently lectures in music composition at Simon Fraser University.
