STEFAN KLAVERDAL (SE)

Stefan Klaverdal is a composer and sound artist working primarily with context. Mostly either the surroundings or other people are at the center of his work, and therefore he frequently seeks out collaborative environments. Music by Klaverdal range from electronics to vocal, and due to his interest in contextual work his output include five operas and several pieces for dance or theater. Examples of his work are a walking concert at IKEA, music for meditating audience, and two operas about weaving. The music is frequently performed and has won several prizes, such as the IMEB in Bourges. In 2012 he received the Prince Eugen Cultural Prize from the Swedish and Norwegian states for his interdisciplinary and innovative work.
