Pete Stollery is a composer, teacher and performer based in Aberdeen, in the North East of Scotland.

He composes almost exclusively in the electroacoustic medium, particularly music where there exists an interplay between the original "meaning" of sounds and sounds existing purely as sound, divorced from their physical origins. In his music, this is achieved by the juxtaposition of real (familiar) and unreal (unfamiliar) sounds to create surreal landscapes.

In recent years he has become interested in how we relate to our sonic environment and has created many works for non-performance contexts.
