KAMRAN SADEGHI ︎ABOUT







Kamran Sadeghi works at the intersections of music, interdisciplinary art and curation. An autodidact that works primarily with sound for its impermanence, non-object nature and physicality. Kamran employs unconventional methodologies, including multi-channel composition, moving image, and architecture, in conjunction with custom-designed instruments, software, transducers, and field recordings. These multifaceted approaches converge to create visceral narratives within his work.
