Watch: A Recap Of Sound Lab Mumbai 2015
3 March 2015
Mumbai was abuzz with art and the sound of music last month. We’ve been keeping you updated about Sound Lab - an initiative of Border Movement and Goethe Institut, Max Mueller Bhavan which saw a talented gathering of musicians from India, Sri Lanka and Germany take part in a week long workshop at Gallery MMB. In house VJ Sourya Sen a.k.a. Oblique and Naman Saraiya have just released a little recap video of the experience.
The intensive workshop included daily analogue and digital jam sessions, opening its doors to the general public every evening as part of the acclaimed Kala Ghoda Arts Festival, which was underway at the time. The open rehearsal space pushed the artists into the deep end, encouraging spur of the moment collaboration and sound synthesis.
The video features each of the participants in Sound Lab relate their thoughts about the workshop, collaboration and the peculiar learning experience of opening up a rehearsal space to music enthusiasts and curious listeners walking in from the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival.
The participants at this edition of the Sound Lab included the German trio Sasha Perera, Toto Wolf and Oren Gerlitz who form Perera Elsewhere, Sanaya Ardeshir, better known as Sandunes, analogue producer Akshay Rajpurohit, musical alias Aqua Dominatrix, Sri Lanka’s Gihan Senevirathne a.k.a. Daffy Maestro and Rahul Nadkarni of SnowShoe and Sky Rabbit.
