The music of Doron Sadja is both dense and sparse simultaneously. Silence, noise and pulses meet fractured beauty and harsh electronic communications. Organic sounds and digital synthesis merge in a sound world full of premonitions and uncertainties, more resembling an altered state of mind than music, where occasional harmonic shoals turn into beats and warm, beautiful melodies.
Doron Sadja is a Brooklyn (USA) and Malmö (Sweden) based artist and electronic music composer who engage the physicality of sound and light through the creation of immersive performance and installation works. Equal parts disgust and empathy, organic and synthetic, Doron Sadja’s work excites the psyche with extremes to create hyper-emotive sonic architecture. Sadja has published music on 12k, Shinkoyo, ATAK, and A Few Quiet People Records, and has performed/exhibited work at PS1 MoMa, Miami MOCA, D’amelio Terras Gallery, Inkonst, Cleveland Museum of Art, Issue Project Room, and Roulette amongst others.
In 2006 Sadja co-founded West Nile, an experimental music and dance performing arts space in Brooklyn, and in 2002 he founded Shinkoyo, a collective of artists, musicians, composers, and instrument builders. Sadja received his BMA from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music (Technology in Music and Related Arts) and his MFA at Bard College (Sound Art) where he studied with Maryanne Amacher, Marina Rosenfeld, and David Behrman.
