Residence: Montréal, Canada
Rouzbeh Shadpey is a sound artist based in Montreal. Navigating at the intersection of experimental, club, and academic forms of electronic music, their music under the moniker Golpesar seeks to create a fluid sonic experience which erases aesthetic boundaries in favour of poetic narration. Recurrent themes appearing in the artist’s work are sonic affects, non-linear narratives, and embodiment. In 2019, they released their debut album Khaneh on well-reputed label Dream Disk Lab as well as performing their multi-channel performance piece for post-human voices “This Voice, Suspended Between Us” at Art Matters Festival. Having completed a doctorate in Medicine at University of Sherbooke and currently finishing their BFA in Electroacoustic Music at Concordia University, Rouzbeh is interested in the capacity of sound art to poetically translate and critically reshape, with much needed dimensions of opacity, conceptual and theoretical material researched from a wide ranging field of studies such as pure sciences, media studies, philosophy, cybernetics, social studies, etc.
