"Musical innovation is full of danger to the State,
for when modes of music change,
the laws of the State always change with them"




Mansoor Hosseini has studied composition in Paris with Phillipe Capdenat and Yoshihisa Taïra. Later he joined the theory and computer-music classes of Peter Swinnen at the Royal Music Conservatory of Brussels as well as composition classes of Carl-Axel Hall at the Gothenburg Music Conservatory.

Hosseini’s creations within theatrical music are inspired by martial arts, contemporary dance and theater. His research and studies with composers such as Georges Aperghis encouraged him to follow this composing style.

Hosseini currently works with avant-garde music, dance and theater groups and composes contemporary music for various ensembles around Europe and America. In 2007, he founded Themus Association and Themus Ensemble with the purpose of combining musicians and actors or even musicians becoming actors, leading to musical theater or, as he prefers to call it, theatrical music.

Hosseini's creations have, among others, been performed by:

Nymphenburger Kammerorchester, C-Y Contemporary, Ensemble Chronophonie, Rangbrook Ensemble, Gageego, Belgrade Philharmonic's chamber musicians, Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra's chamber musicians, Opus Neuf, Curious Chamber Players, Ning Ensemble, Neopercusion, Themus Ensemble, Duo Myosa, Duo Vitare, CexSaxo Duo, Turku Philharmonic's chamber musicians, Duo Ego, Raphael Bell, Christian Berg, Gregory Oakes, Sabrina Ma, Ricarda Gnauck, Michael Kirkendol, Henja Semmler, Stijn Kuppens, Kiyo Wada, Mårten Falk, Aleksandar Latkovic, Henrik Larsen and more.



As a musician, Hosseini has participated in recordings such as:
