STEFÁN ÓLAFUR Ólafsson

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.
