Shaahin Peymani (1990) is a composer and sound artist based in Tehran and Berlin. He often uses found sounds, field recordings, and archival sounds in his works. By recomposing concrete sounds and processed speech voices into collages, he explores the realm of human perception and the deconstruction of language in audio culture, and seeks to redefine modes of listening by transforming sound as an indication of its source into an abstract structural sound object. Shaahin studied Textile engineering and Composition in Tehran, and Sound Studies and Sonic arts in Berlin. In addition to sound installations and Audiovisual performances, his artistic practice includes music composition and sound design for film, animation, theatre and dance.
