A composer and sound artist based in Tehran and Berlin. After graduating in textile engineering, he studied at the Tehran conservatory, and is currently continuing his Master studies in Sound Studies and Sonic arts at the Berlin University of the arts.
Shaahin often uses found sounds, field recordings, and archival sounds in his works. By recomposing concrete sounds and processed speech voices into collages, he explores into the realm of human perception and the deconstruction of language in audio culture, and seeks to redefine modes of listening by transforming sound as an indication of its source into an abstract structural sound object.
