    [PARIS] WITHOUT COMPUTERS – Anthropocene and Digital Imaginaries

    Date: April 08, 2019

    Conference with Matthias Fritsch & concert with Vincent Royer 

    April 8, Ecole Nationale Supérieure, Paris, 45 rue d’Ulm, Salle Dussan

    The Postdigital research group at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris is hosting a colloquium examining our future existence on this planet in the case that computers disappear again. With Concordia colleague Matthias Fritsch, Sandeep will be giving a talk on the perception of temporalities in anthropocenic scenarios and how maybe the praxis of listening to polyphonic music might help us humans to understand and inhabit the vastly different time-scales of geological processes vs. human attention span.

    The same evening, in the same building, but in the library hall, Vincent Royer, viola & voice, will perform his solo version of Sandeep’s score “Miyagi Haikus” –  a piece written as a reaction on the 2011 tsunami in Japan. He will intersperse his readings with selected poetry by Ranjit Hoskote, Yang Lian, Monika Rinck, Christian Filips, Yoko Tawada and Lance Olsen – poems they wrote in reaction to his music of the Miyagi Haikus.

    Free entry, here is a weblink to these events.

    “ville étrange”

    Date: June 15, 2019

    Location: Oldenburg, Morgenland Festival

    June 15, 2019 Oldenburg, Morgenland Festival
    “ville étrange”
    in 2014, together with Kiya Tabassian, I co-founded the trans-traditional ensemble “Sound of Montréal”  as an experimental side project of his “Ensemble Constantinople”. Over years of research-creation, we developed a project that took Claude Viviers composition “…et je reverrai cette ville étrange…”(1981) and transformed, expanded and interpreted it through the lens of a trans-traditional ensemble. After several successful tours in Canada, this concert kicks off our first tour in Europe. It also marks the launch of the album “ville étrange”, an edited live-recording of this project in Montréal, on dreyer gaido records.
      • Nota Bene: By June, I also hope to see the release of my next album “Atish-e-Zaban”, one hour of music for 6 voices a cappella on poems by Faiz Ahmad Faiz, sung by the Neue Vocalsolisten Stuttgart and slated to appear on mode records New York. This album gone through a long legal and administrative process since the NVS recorded the piece in 2014 – and I hope to finally hold the album in my hands this coming year- with a wonderful cover by miniature artist Muhammad Imran Qureshi.
