Stefan Maier (b. 1990) is an artist and composer based in Vancouver, Canada — the unceded, traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. Working fluidly between live electronic performance, installation, concert music, writing, and sound design for interdisciplinary projects, his works explore the chaotic flows of sonic matter through buildings, sound systems, instruments, software, and bodies. His work has been presented by Haus der Kulturen der Welt (DE), INA-GRM (FR), Ultima festival (NO), Unsound (PL), Liquid Architecture (AU), MONOM (DE), SPOR festival (DK), Gong Tomorrow (DK), the National Music Centre (CA), and Gaudeamus Muziekweek (NL), among many others. His work as a sound designer and film/dance composer has been presented at Sterischer Herbst (AT), International Film Festival Rotterdam (NL), Vleeshal Center for Contemporary Art (NL), and V-A-C foundation (RU). Stefan has composed works of chamber music for Talea Ensemble (USA), ECM+ (CA), Ensemble Experimental (DE), Le NEM (CA), and Catchpenny (NL), among many others. In 2017 he received a Mayor’s Art Award from the City of Vancouver and was a 2019 Macdowell Colony Fellow (USA). Stefan is Assistant Professor of Sound Art and Sound Design at Simon Fraser University.
