Chez Bushwick and The Watermill Center present Cipher & Who See The Sky at CPR
Cipher & Who See The Sky at CPR
March 4, 2012 at 7:30pm

Cipher is a solo work that begins from the question: how does sound come out of my body? Sinha explores this question using the "nonsense" sounds of taranaa genre of song in Indian classical music invented in the 13th century that mixes Persian, Arabic, and Sanskrit syllables that are said to encode mystical meanings. Cipher is performed with a "band" of four electronic boxes, including electronic tabla (drum box) and electronic tanpura (drone box), which have trapped a centuries-old tradition of acoustic finery into a convenient, portable form.

Tenenbaum will perform solo excerpts from her latest work-in-progress Who See The Sky, a work that investigates the ideological structures that define art, science, and primitivism. In Who See The Sky she returns to the artificial world of musical theater to examine a form long largely regarded as pastiche, and often excluded from 20th century performance discourse. She re-imagines the American musical through a phenomenological lens, blurring the line between high and low art through a series of unexpected shifts in timbre and tone. In the tradition of Robert Ashley or Laurie Anderson, her musicality straddles a world between song and poem, creating additional spaces for abstract movement.
