Heather Stebbins is a composer of acoustic and electroacoustic works with a background as a cellist. At the core of her music is a deep fascination with the inner structures and intricacies of sound. Whether these sounds emanate from an instrument, an object, or a computer, Heather uses sounds that strike her viscerally and intellectually as the germinating elements of her music. She is currently on a Fulbright Fellowship in Tallinn, Estonia, where she is working with composer Helena Tulve.
Along with fellow composer Lesley Hinger, Heather is the co-founder of the Boston-based Acoustic Uproar concert series, which promotes emerging composers and performers in the programming of extremely contemporary music.
