Schahram Poursoudmand is a German composer, music & sound artist, visual imagist and poet. He creates extraordinary music, sound and visual art of a unique kind.
In the avant-garde projects LICHTPHON, ONEVERYMOON, LICHTSCHREI, SHINE and ART-AVANT, he explores and realizes his artistic visions of music, sound, visual image and video art in existential poetry. The creative discovery of beauty through disintegration, dissolution, transformation, recreation and the representation of being and beyond in the transition from existence to non-existence is the essential approach and destination in his artistic passion.
Music, sound, image and moving picture is 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 avant-garde elements by further deformation, in the beauty of decomposition.
Existence, time, duality, deconstruction, humanism, transcendence, the infinite moment, the unknown, and recreation are some of the themes in his works.
Schahram Poursoudmand creates unreal worlds of music, sound, visual art and poetry of strange beauty with unique aesthetics and expression. A surreal and bizarre mystery in music and visual art.

„The fascination of renewal after the dissolution. The discovery and changing of time and time states. The artistic deconstruction, the diving into deep micro- and nanostructured soundworlds, as well as the representation of beauty in the creation of existence in nonexistence and new realities are the themes that stirs and fascinates me. Not the clearly audible and visible - but the secret behind the veil.“
