The origin of my career begins with my concert music composition, where I explore methods of blending western minimalist music with practices found in traditional music of Iran. My fascination of procedural rhythms in 21st century postminimalist music has carried over into video game music, where I focus on the non-linear aspects of music.
I began my music career by starting violin lessons at the age of 2 after showing interest in violinists on the TV by imitating them for hours each day. I studied with Melissa Hui and Jean Lesage during my bachelor’s degree in music composition at McGill University with a minor in linguistics, where I have also taken multiple courses on digital studio composition. At the University of Toronto, I have taken a master’s degree in composition under Christos Hatzis, where I have enrolled in courses on sound recording, film composing, and interactive sound and music in video games. Awards include Best of British Columbia winner in 2015 of The Vancouver Chamber Choir Biennial Young Composers’ Competition.
