In the avant-garde projects LICHTPHON, ONEVERYMOON, LICHTSCHREI, SHINE and ART-AVANT, Schahram Poursoudmand develops creative possibilities for discovering identity and beauty through disintegration, dissolution, transformation and recreation of being and beyond in the transitions from existence to non-existence. The moment becomes eternity. This is the essential approach and intention of his artistic passion.
Music, sound, image and moving picture is manipulated, stretched and condensed in form, time and space. Tonal and visual entities, sections and details, become disintegrated through dissolution in themselves and creates new structures, unknown realities and surreal elements by further deformation in the beauty of decomposition and recreation.
Schahram Poursoudmand creates unreal worlds of strange beauty, mystery and drama with unique aesthetics and expressiveness.
“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 ...
