About the Facilitator

Sohrab Motabar (1984) is a composer from Tehran. With regards to states of suspension and dazzled motion his music resonates like a maze for the listener. He composes with algorithms, chaotic functions and non-standard synthesized sounds as a way to give rise to obscured dimensions and experimental modes of perceiving and listening. In 2018 he graduated from the Institute of Sonology at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague. In addition he also actively collaborates in select projects with artists from other disciplines.
