Surabhi Saraf // LIVE

Surabhi Saraf w/ Ian Smiths-Heisters

GRAINS is a multi media live performance that deals with expanding the sonic energy that resides in a single grain of sound. The performance explores the visual and sonic amplification of domestic food grains and their transformation to a collections of solid grains that flows like a liquid as they multiply. Layering her vocals on top of the flowing grains Surabhi weaves a rich tapestry of sounds, multiplied and fragmented, creating dynamic textures and immersive architectural soundscapes.

Vocals and electronics: Surabhi Saraf
