Stefán Ólafur Ólafsson is an Icelandic clarinettist, composer and electronic musician. He has through the years engaged in various projects within the fields of music and arts. As a performer, he has premiered dozens of compositions, while also performing a more standard repertoire. His compositions range from more traditional electro-acoustic works, through robotics and interactivity between multiple participants to more experimental pieces. He has, for instance, explored music that disappoints the listener (such as much-hyped pieces that do not meet expectations, overly long and complicated pieces and events with substandard catering and pointless rituals) and competitive pieces of music, where a performer can win and therefore enjoy a monetary gain.
