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 during 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 Sound Art”. 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 group Soundwalk Collective- as a founding member, lead composer, sound artist, live performance director, music producer and co-creative director.
