Artist of the week

Tahereh Nourani is a Vienna-based composer and sound artist focusing on electro-acoustic and experimental music. In her work, she explores the potential of slowness and silence as well as the connection between sound, text and video. Using free improvisation, extended playing techniques, amplified objects and minimal live electronics, she creates reduced, organic and archaic sound spaces that span an arc between ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Memory Response) and noise.

Nourani is a member of QMA artist collective (2024), Shape+ artist (2023) and winner of the PhonoECHOES Award for Experimental Sound Art by Austrian Composers Association (2021). Both solo and in various projects, such as the Vienna Improvisers Orchestra, she has performed at festivals such as Moers (DE), FAT FUTURE (AT), UH Fest (HU) and Üle Heli (EE). She studied European classical flute at Tehran University of Arts and at the University for Music and Performing Arts Vienna (MDW) and was Artist in Residence at AQB (HU), Casa di Rosa (CH) and Hotel Pupik (AT).
