Dhvani Sutras: An Evening of Indian Music Exploration @ Mazda Hall (Pune, India)
Feb 8, 7 pm @ Mazda Hall, Pune, India
On Feburary 8, vocalists Sameer Dublay and Aparna Gurav lead an ensemble of eight Indian classical musicians through Sandeep Bhagwati’s rule-based comprovisation concepts and scores, such as “Lehra Alphabet”, “Alaap for Ashok”, “Cloud Melodies” and “Rives&Dérives IV.” The concert includes several world premiers.
Dhvani Sutras is a unique project that builds on Indian music score concepts developed from 2001 to 2008 through the Rasalila project with Shubha Mudgal, Ashok Ranade, Dhruba Ghosh, Uday Bhawalkar, Aneesh Pradhan, Ganesh Anandan and Ensemble Modern. However, for the Dhvani Sutras iteration, Western-educated musicians are left out of the mix.
