Samita Sinha’s sonic investigations peer into a landscape located somewhere between the universe’s vibrating om and Whitman’s barbaric yawp. Using her voice, an electric sitar, an ektaara (one-stringed instrument), and the natural resonances of the room, Sinha reframes the transcendental intent of raga found in traditional Hindustani classical music. She sings, chants, spontaneously invents language, and moves her body to change the sound and shape of her voice, resulting in an utterly human noise that, in Sinha’s words, channel “ancestral memories and… unconscious, unformed thoughts.” NL
