George Rahi is a composer and sound artist based in Vancouver. He uses self-created and altered instruments as a method of exploring relationships between technology, listening, and spatial thinking. Drawn to the tactile and sculptural realms of sound, his work includes large-scale installations for buildings, compositions for pipe organs, and works for radio, theatre, and public spaces, notably for the Canadian Music Centre, Fusebox Festival (Austin), Jogjakarta Noise Festival, SPEKTRUM (Berlin), Global Composition (Darmstadt), Vancouver New Music, and Insitu Recordings (Indonesia). He holds an MFA degree from Simon Fraser University and is the recipient of the 2018 R. Murray Schafer Soundscape award.
