I am a composer of acoustic and electronic music, usually inspired by socio-political culture, mythology and interactive technology, with projects ranging from concert works to interdisciplinary and film scores. As an Iranian artist involved with major social issues, I seek to promote intercultural communication through my works. Active in a diverse array of genres and interested in music as a documentary, my works have been performed and recorded in the United States, Europe, and the Middle East, and I have received several awards including first prizes at 2Agosto and Pejman competitions for my orchestral and chamber music, as well as the winner of PUBLIQ Access.
My music has also been selected and performed at numerous festivals including ISCM World Music Days in Estonia, World Saxophone Congress in Croatia, South by Southwest, SEAMUS at Berklee, International Saxophone Symposium at GMU, Electroacoustic Barn Dance at JU, EMS60 at UIUC, ElectroAcousticMiniFest at WSU, West Fork New Music Festival, EE+F at UT, Fusebox Festival, Sound In Sculpture, LaTex Festival, EARS and many more.
Currently pursuing my Composition PhD as a Graduate Assistant at the University of Florida, I hold degrees in Composition from the Art University of Tehran (B.M.) as well as from University of Texas at Austin (M.M.), where I served as a Teaching Assistant in Digital Music. My portfolio includes works for electronic media, mixed chamber ensembles, symphonic orchestra, wind ensemble, choir, and solo instruments.
