Kamran Sadeghi is a producer, musician and composer of electronic music based in New York. Active in multiple disciplines such as scoring for film, music for choreography, live performance, sound and video installations and underground club music.
Although Sadeghi studied Music Theory / Composition, Jazz Percussion and Audio Engineering, he considers himself an autodidact. Kamran’s sound world is physical - full of hyper magnification, stillness, unexpected shifts and sharp punctuations. His diverse body of work is the sonic diary to the cultural and physical experiences that are happening around us.
His production credits can be found on collaborations with Patti Smith, Sasha Waltz, Jean-Luc Godard, Berghain and more. His solo performances have put him on line-ups with the likes of Moritz Von Oswald, Fennesz, Tim Hecker, Vladislav Delay and Richard Devine. Kamran’s LIVE club sets have been performed in venues such as Arma17, Resonate Festival, ADE, Robert Johnson, REX Club, Awakenings, Club Der Visionaire, and many others.
From 2012 to 2018, Sadeghi was vital in the transition of the audio tour guide company, Soundwalk, into the music group Soundwalk Collective - As the former commissioned music producer, sound artist and live performance director, Kamran wrote music for multiple performers, custom designed instruments and created studio albums from non-musical field recordings.
In 2005 Kamran first gained recognition for his work under the alias Son Of Rose with several critically acclaimed records on the label Dragon Eye Recordings. During this time he performed live using a grand piano with electronic magnets on the strings. This electronically prepared piano was simultaneously processed using custom made synth patches using Plogue Bidule and Max/MSP.
In 2008 Kamran put the traditional output of making albums on pause to create multi-channel sound installations and performances that combined his custom designed interactive video compositions. During this period he was awarded an artist residency producing work using the Nam June Paik ‘Wobbulator’, worked for composer Morton Subotnick and became co-curator of one of the first galleries dedicated to multi-channel Sound Art, Diapason. Active in the contemporary music scene in New York he performed at Issue Project Room, Experimental Intermedia, The Stone and many others.
