I’m Michael James Olson, an artist/musician living in Minnesota. I spend most of my time working on creative projects as a composer, songwriter, producer, media artist, or new music performer. I’m a professor at Minnesota State University where I teach composition and music technology, and you can learn more about our music program and the cool things we do here. I write and perform ambient electronic music/video (sometimes alone, often times with other great collaborators) all over the place, and you can hear/see that music here. I compose electronic music for the concert hall, integrating instruments and videos, and you can hear that music here. I’m also a songwriter and producer for a number of great artists, and you can learn all about them here. If you want to talk with me about music or collaborations, you can contact me at
