Schahram Poursoudmand

Schahram Poursoudmand is a German experimental, avant-garde composer, music/sound artist, visual imagist and poet. He creates extraordinary music, sound- and visual art projects of a unique kind. In the avant-garde projects LICHTPHON, ONEVERYMOON, LICHTSCHREI, SHINE and ART-AVANT, he explores and realizes his artistic visions of music, sound, visual image and video art in existential poetry.

Award-winning and worldwide presented artistic works. Presentations, festivals and exhibitions: Tokyo, New York City, Paris, Venice, Barcelona, Seoul, Toronto, Saint Petersburg, San Francisco, Berlin, Centre for Contemporary Art Barcelona, National Museum of Modern Art Nimes, Center for Contemporary Art Beijing, World Financial Center New York City etc.

Existence, time, deconstruction, transcendence, the infinite moment and discovery in the unknown are some of the themes in his work.

“The fascination of renewal after the dissolution. The discovery and representation of beauty through artistic deconstruction. The changing and exploration of the new created by deformation of time and time states. The diving into deep nanostructured sound and image worlds when creating existence into non-existence and new realities are the topics that stirs and fascinate me. Not the obvious, clearly audible and visible - but the secret behind the veil."

... another world...an unknown place...an unknown time ...
