Ameet Singh
Ameet Singh Ameet Singh creates site specific installations which explore the act of listening and the listening plane though visual experience and aural experience. The installations are created using an 'ambient' methodology which works with nuances of the architectural space with visuals developed specifically for the space, surface or volume. For example visuals developed using the light patterns that the sun creates in a space or working with corners, intersections of surfaces in a volume, or architectural finishes, detail present. These visuals are mapped onto space using multiple video projectors. The soundscape consists of recorded sounds from within the space, existing white noise with an overlay of a specifically composed ambient music track.
These installations are not designed to have a narrative nature and are meant to enhance space subtly without being overtly obtrusive or cinematic. An attempt is made to induce a state of slowing down our sense of time and perception, allowing the viewer to drift. All of these works have been so far collaborative in nature, using either prerecorded music or worked with amateur musicians for the music overlay tracks.

Aparna Panshikar
Aparna Panshikar was born into a family deeply involved with the performing arts, and had an early introduction to Indian Classical music from her mother, Meera Panshikar, a disciple of Padmavibhushan Kishori Amonkar and Pandit Bhaskarbua Joshi. Her own individual singing style has been well received, and often awarded, by audiences as well as connoisseurs in innumerable concerts around India and several other countries, with a repertoire ranged from pure-classical to semi-classical forms and also experimentation in combining North and South Indian Classical music, as well as several collaborations with international electroacousticians, most notable including Lawrence Casserly, with whom she has performed in several countries since 2006.
Album releases so far include: HMV – 3 titles released as 'HMV presents A Voice for the New Millennium', 2000; Inreco Records released a ‘jugalbandi' (fusion) with Aparna singing the Indian Classical style and Sudha Raghunathan singing the Carnatic Classical style of music, under the title 'UNITY' in 2000; Mook Sound, South Korea published a fusion between Indian music composed and sung by her, and Korean music played by leading exponents from that country, under the title 'Winds from Ayuta', in 2002. This won the 'Critics Best New Release Award' in South Korea for 2002; Mook Sound went on to release another title 'Diamond Sutra' and 'Punyapur ki Sarita' in 2003; Deep Emotions (Silk Road Communications ) released 'Shivoham' – a collection of verses by Adi Shankaracharya sung by Aparna, accompanied with sarod and keyboard, 2004.
In addition to her albums and her work with Lawrence Casserley, she has also successfully worked with Greg Turner – an American musician based in South Korea playing Indonesian gamelan, with whom she first exchanged ideas, followed up with basic music pieces and finally created a song, without ever meeting each other. She has also worked virtually with Kai Turnbull, of the Berklee College of Music in Boston, USA, but Kai eventually came down to India and recorded classical pieces directly from her, modified to suit western rhythm patterns as used in pop music. When she travelled to France for a promotional tour of her album 'Shivoham', she worked with the composer and singer Rudolfe Burger to create an experiment that resulted in a small concert for music lovers and connoisseurs. She has participated in and led various seminars and discourses in recent years and is presently taken up with establishing her dream 'Bandish ~ The School of Music', as an umbrella institution for supporting learning, research and propagation of Indian music all over the world, and also as a convergence point for musicians of all description.

Theater with Peter Brook, Bob Wilson. East West center "Chakra", in the South of France: Return to roots, Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra: Pandit Durga Lal, Pandit Vinaya Chandra Maudgalya, Fahimuddin Dagar: multiple blessings, and then Yoga, the "glue" binding all together.

Thanks Shankar for this special vision, and Shazeb for your immense patience with a bunch of wacky artists."

Stine Gro
Stine Gro is born in Copenhagen, Denmark, and is now based in Berlin, Germany and at the Funen Art Academy in Odense, Denmark.
Sound and Video are the main medias in her practice, but a mix between medias, such as video-sculptures is also a turning point in her work.
Stine Gro's general approach is generated from an idea about humans as alienated, awkward subjects, who seem not to succeed in interacting with each other.
That creates an inevitable solo space, where we can restitute from the work of constructing an identity from pieces of memory, and from what we borrow from our surroundings. This generates her work with the private, spiritual space, the need to create a "room" of ones own. This leads to her interest in making work that creates a feeling of a spiritual presence , that can almost create a feeling of trance while looking at it for a longer period of time.
This interest has it's starting point in spiritualism as a construction, just as going into a trance can be generated from a set of physical components, such as rhythm as visual fixation.

Tritha Sinha
A voice : Versatile, agile, profound with a plummy richness of sound. Tritha's dusky tones and throbbing intensity, vibrating and moving emotional commitment, entrance her audience and leave the public spell bound. Listen:
A musician : Born in Kolkata, Tritha started training in North Indian classical music at the age of five, and never stopped. She is currently a student of Santanu Bandyopadhyay from the Bishnupur gharana.
Equally at home with Indian Classical music as with Bjork and Janis Joplin, Abida Parveen or Aretha Franklin, Tritha has forged her own unique, inclusive sound and has already gained critical and popular acclaim for her songs, several of which were used by the Magnum Agency, France, for their movies on "Women changing India" last year.
A woman : Tritha is an ardent supporter of women's rights and includes her ideas in her songs with "Lyrics that deal with women's liberation, social oppression and sexual exploitation" (Hindustan Times).
In June 2012, she was featured on a full page in Marie Claire India as one amongst the ten most interesting young Indian women, and also that same month, in Tehelka Magazine.
Tritha's picture has been traveling all over the world in 2011 and 2012 with the exhibition Women Changing India, organized by the Magnum Photo Agency and BNP Paribas.
A citizen of the world : Tritha has widely traveled and recently returned to India from a 3-month tour in Europe, during which she also recorded her third album with French record label Notreespace.

Vickram Crishna
I have been a musician since my schooldays, and helped organise music events in my colleges, through my undergraduate (Arun Mehta and I are classmates, aside from enjoying a long vocational collaboration) and graduate studies. While I have not made music a vocation/career, I continue my interest, and in 2003, in the course of executing an electronic communications project with Arun in Hyderabad, we developed the concept of distributed sound.
This is a technique to deliver electronically amplified sound to a 'sculpted' listening area, allowing for a variety of fascinating sound art applications. Among these are locationally adjacent but distinct sound spaces, mobile sound spaces, and open air sound delivery that delivers high quality sound to a designated audience while enabling relative silence for anyone else. All of these sound space creations deliver sound to groups of people, not just individuals, although sound delivery to individuals is also interesting, in its own way. I personally believe it detracts from the group experience, though, if the purpose is to listen/dance to music together. Mobile audience spaces use wireless transmission, while static spaces can be created with traditional wired amplification systems. The techniques are therefore technology agnostic.
The most major public art event using this technique was the Banganga Music Festival held at a temple complex in Mumbai for three years in succession, for an audience size of around 4,000 people (for major artists such as Pt. Shivkumar Sharma) each time. A very different application was the opening event of the Ars Electronica Festival in Linz, Austria, which used a moving audience space for a music performance of Kabir's dohas, by students and staff of the Srishti School of Design, Bengaluru.

Vinny Bhagat
Vinny Bhagat aka Shivnakaun is a sound-artist and musician researching in the field of computational electro acoustic music and audio-visual art and technology.
