Sigurd Fischer Olsen was born in 1976 and lives in Bergen. Has studied composition with Morten Eide Pedersen at the Grieg Academy in Bergen and Mathias Spahlinger in Hochschule fur Musik in Freiburg. He has written music mainly for solo and chamber ensembles but his works also include larger orchestras, electroacoustic music and installation. His music has been performed in several countries and by ensembles such as Quatuor Bozzini, Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, Ensemble Risognanze and Oslo Sinfonietta.

His music often explores simple ideas and tries to get as much as possible out of little material. Complexity, not by quantity of notes but by bringing different musical progressions or tendencies in connection with eachother. His music has been described as “intense and low-voiced at the same time.”
