MTNA/IMTA Commissioned Composer
Ryan Olivier (b. 1985), who grew up in the southern United States, is a composer and multimedia artist. While continuing to compose for both traditional concert ensembles and fixed media, his current focus is the real-time incorporation of visualized electronic music with live performers. His evening-length show, Imaginary Music, with performing partner Andrew Litts was described by Deb Miller of DCMetroTheaterArts as, “a highly intelligent synthesis of the arts with science and technology,…an equally lofty aesthetic of transcendent beauty;…at once cerebral and emotive, intellectual and hypnotic.” Ryan is an Assistant Professor of Music at Indiana University South Bend where he teaches courses in music technology and interdisciplinary composition. Previously Ryan taught at St. Joseph’s University and Temple University where he earned a master's degree and a doctorate after completing his undergraduate studies at Loyola University New Orleans. www.ryanolivier.com
