Conflict and Creation - A Musical Excursion

Conflict and Creation - A Musical Excursion

There is always an element of conflict when artists dream, envision and conceptualize a new creation. Take a musical excursion with us where conjuring up soundscapes that transcend time and space is one of the many ways our guest Samita Sinha approaches the creative process. Samita Sinha is an artist and vocalist/ composer based in New York. She combines tradition with experiment to create new forms, drawing from a deep grounding in North Indian classical music, a contemporary vocabulary, folk and ritual music, and songs and texts in several languages. Her work reconfigures given inheritances, and combines raw, visceral energy with knowledge garnered from classical tradition. As a composer/ performer and improviser, Sinha uses her voice as her primary instrument, along with tanpura and analog and digital electronics. She has performed her solo and ensemble work at PS 1, Roulette, Carnegie Hall Neighborhood Concerts, Blue Note, and Issue Project Room, at universities such as UC Berkeley
