Stefan Klaverdal

Stefan Klaverdal is a composer and sound artist based in Sweden. He received a post grad in composition in 2003 from Malmö Academy of Music (Lund University), where he currently teaches composition.

Stefan composes music for a large variation of ensembles, but specializes in vocal and electronic music as well as unconventional settings like in opera or performance art. The music is frequently performed and has won several prizes, such as the prestigious IMEB in Bourges. In 2012 he received the Prince Eugen Cultural Prize from the Swedish and Norwegian states for his interdisciplinary and innovative work and in 2014 he was awarded “composer of the year” by Bergslagen Symphonic orchestra.

Stefan’s sound art is both performance-oriented, like in collaboration with performance artist Lisa Hansson, and he frequently works with computer-interactive installations such as a permanent sound and video installation at the Hospital of Lund.
