Rojin Sharafi is a Vienna-based, Tehran-born sound artist, performer, and composer of acoustic and electronic music, which freely crosses the borders between genres. She creates entirely unique musical textures through the use of analogue, acoustic and augmented instruments, as well as digital tools of her own devising. Currently, Rojin Sharafi is pursuing her masters in sound engineering and composition at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna, where she is delving into deeper research and understanding of digital music performance. Her debut album “Urns Waiting To Be Fed” debuted in 2019 at Opal Tapes sublabel Zabte Zote. Lauded by The Quietus as “the truly unexpected,” it has been called “one of [2019’s] most ecstatic and fiercely original hours of music.” “Zangaar,” her second album, is inspired by the interplay between literature and sound and was released in 2020.
