Arash Akbari is a transdisciplinary artist, based in Tehran, Iran. His interest in dynamic art systems, human perception, nonlinear narrative, and the co-existence between physical and digital worlds compelled him to explore the fields of generative systems, interaction design, and real-time processing.
He examines the ways interactive cybernetic systems and their emergent behaviors can evoke concepts, ideas and questions as well as social and emotional responses and impacts. Akbari directs his experimental practices into audio-visual performances and installations, interactive applications, and multisensory experiences.
His compositions investigate experimental approaches to sound generation, field recordings, acoustic instrumentation, digital synthesis, DSP, and noise to create immersive sonic environments that explore the agency of autonomous systems, indeterminacy, memory, and the perception of time and space.
His work has been presented in different festivals and exhibitions around the world, such as Athens Digital Arts Festival, Recto VRso Festival, Mutek Forum, Simultan Festival, New Media Fest, 3D Web Fest, Cinnamon Colomboscope, Lacuna Festival, Videofenster and Graphical Web Conference. He has released albums on Karl Records, Flaming Pines, Unknown Tone Records, Taalem, and Soft Recordings among numerous other labels.
He has collaborated with many great artists such as Moor Mother, Martin Steer (Bad Stream),Farzané, Sote and others.
