Né en 1985, le compositeur norvégien Øyvind Mæland étudie le piano au Barratt Due Musikkinstitutt avec Jiri Hlinka, avant dʼétudier la composition à la Norwegian Academy of Music avec Olav Anton Thommessen, Ivar Froundberg et Henrik Hellstenius. Sa création inclut principalement des oeuvres de musique de chambre, qui lʼont amené à composer pour des musiciens tels que Martin Fröst, le Kairos Quartet, Bit20 (avec Pierre- André Valade au Borealis Festival de Bergen) et le Oslo Sinfonietta (avec Christian Eggen à lʼOslo International Chamber Music Festival).

En 2013 il termine un opéra intitulé Ad undas – Solaris Korrigert (pour orchestre, solistes et choeur à 9 voix) quʼil a eu la chance de faire créer à lʼOpéra National dʼOslo en octobre 2013. Fruit dʼune collaboration étroite avec le poète renommé Øyvind Rimbereid, lʼoeuvre a été mise en scène par l’artiste de performance Lisa C. Baudoin Lie.

Øyvind Mæland a participé à diverses masterclasses dont la Darmstadt Summer Academy (où ses oeuvres ont été jouées à deux reprises). Il a reçu les conseils de compositeurs tels que Georges Aperghis, Brian Ferneyhough, Marco Stroppa, James Dillon, Klaus Lang, Chaya Czernowin, Fabio Vacchi et Rolf Wallin.
