Ryan David Stevens (b. 1992) is an American composer from Minneapolis, Minnesota. They received a B.M. in music theory and composition in 2016 from the University of Northern Iowa, studying under Dr. Jonathan Schwabe and Dr. Alan Schmitz.
Stevens takes interest in loosening the definition of what it means to make "high art" music. They often take inspiration from the experimental production and composition styles of noise, electronic, and rock/pop music, while continuing to push boundaries in the contemporary classical realm of music composition and performance.
