Hadi Bastani Hadi Bastani Belfast Listening is just another way of feeling, understanding, and forgetting. A mode of experiencing through sound; a mode of being in sound as it unfolds. There are no boundaries between not-seeing and silence, smells, touches, and tastes. Cactus or cherry that's the question ... I am a composer, sound artist, radio producer, music blogger, and researcher, currently based in Belfast at the Sonic Arts Research Centre (Queen’s University), where I pursue an interdisciplinary and practice-based PhD in Sound Art and Anthropology. My work explores the use of spatial audio techniques in electroacoustic composition in order to create immersive experiences. For that purpose, I work with recorded sounds such as field recordings, as well as electronically synthesised sounds; computer coding along with other materials and objects. I am also interested in researching the effect of music in forming new socialities.
