George Rahi

George Rahi is a composer and sound artist, whose installation “Frequencies” was featured in Modulus 2019.

George Rahi (b 1987) is a composer and sound artist based in Vancouver. He uses self-created and altered instruments as a method of exploring the intersections between acoustic and digital technologies, modes of listening, and spatial and architectural thinking. Often foregrounding the tactile and sculptural dimensions of sound, his work includes large-scale installations, compositions for pipe organs, and works for radio, theatre and public spaces. He has presented throughout North America, Europe, and Asia. He holds an MFA from Simon Fraser University and is the recipient of the 2018 R. Murray Schafer Soundscape award. In 2019 he began a year-long mentorship with sound artist and kinetic sculptor Trimpin.
