Artists Charles Amirkhanian

Composer, poet, and percussionist Charles Amirkhanian has been a leading proponent of text-sound composition in the USA. His recent works typically incorporate processed ambient and found sounds which explore a rich continuum of sonic materials, layered and developed in the manner of a disjunct narrative playing of abstract (musical) sounds against representational ones (sound effects). Musical director of KPFA FM Radio in the San Francisco Bay Area for many years, he is now Executive Director of the Djerassi Resident Artists Program in Woodside (California, USA), and Program Director of the Other Minds Music Festival in San Francisco (California, USA).
