Kamran Sadeghi is an Iranian born American musician, composer, record producer and interdisciplinary artist based in New York City. Recent solo album “Loss Less”, released on LINE, was recorded live inside a defunct nuclear cooling tower. The audiovisual installation premiered at the Louvre Museum Paris as part of Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin 2021.  His most recent collaboration, ’42.41’ is with installation artist Zimoun. 

Sadeghi’s diverse body of work can be attributed to his use of sound as a sculptural material.  An alchemist who is guided by thematic research, controlled experimentation and intuition while working with synthesis, acoustics, sound, light and video recording / processing technology.

Sadeghi’s performances, soundtracks, collaborations and installations have been experienced at the Louvre Museum (FR), HKW (DE), ICA (Boston), DTW (NY), Corcoran Gallery of Art (DC), CTM Festival (DE), KOW Gallery (DE), K11 Museum (Shanghai), MUDAM (Luxembourg), MuCEM (Marseille), Centre Pompidou (FR), Berghain (DE), and Berlin Biennale (DE).

His recordings and productions are published on such labels as Sternberg Press, Vinyl Factory, LINE, Sacred Bones, Dragons Eye Recordings and Apollo Records.

Artist Statement:
I am interested in sound and music for its impermanence, non-object nature, physicality and structural integrity. My work explores the materiality of sound and its interaction within a physical space to create sensory environments that plays with our awareness and the human perception. My compositions avoid classic structures in order to invite visceral narratives to emerge.


In 2005 Kamran released his first record under the alias Son Of Rose. “…Sadeghi’s use of the slow-swelling properties of the E-bow filtering  through subterranean museums of opaque, glassy dreamscapes like a less  oppressive version of Halo Manash’s Isolationist Ambience. Disarming  Stuff.” - The WIRE Magazine. His primary focus leading up to and through this period was resonance, microtonality, electro-acoustics, granular synthesis and improvisation.  

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 worked for composer Morton Subotnick and became part 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.

From 2012 to 2018, Sadeghi was vital in the transition of the audio tour guide company, Soundwalk, into the art/music group Soundwalk Collective - As the lead composer, music producer, sound artist and live performance director, Kamran wrote music for multiple performers,custom designed instruments, installations and produced studio albums with artists such as Patti Smith, American photographer Nan Goldin, French-Swiss film director Jean-Luc Godard and choreographer Sasha Waltz.
