Kamran Sadeghi’s diverse body of work is built upon capturing fleeting moments by using sound as a sculptural material. His use of electronic instruments to create new worlds comes from his roots in multiple genres, the arts and acceptance. An
alchemist who is guided by controlled experimentation and intuition
while working with machines that are connected to one another through a
vast chain of signals and triggers.
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. “…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
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 at E.T.C.- 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.
As a music producer, mix engineer, arranger and composer - his credits can be found on collaborations with Patti Smith, Sasha Waltz, Jean-Luc Godard, Berghain - published on such labels as Vinyl Factory, Sacred Bones, Marionette, Apollo Records, Sternberg Press and more. His recent score for artist Mario Pfeifer’s film Again/Noch Einmal was shown at the 2018 Berlin Biennale.
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.
