Beginning to post some documentation here.

Hoping to get more images and a documentary video from Jaaga soon…

 

Come out to Jaaga July 1st at 7:30pm!

Jaaga Dhvani is a new work of Sound Art by New York-based artist Heather Dewey-Hagborg.

Jaaga Dhvani is quite literally the voice of a space – a sonic representation of the Jaaga art center imagined as a living corporeal entity.

Jaaga Dhvani is also a voice from space – the space around us in both our immediate and vast conceptions of place; an exploration of Jaaga , Bangalore, and India more generally as a site of collision between the global and the local, the high and the low tech, the very old and the very new.

 

Here are a few verses the algorithm generated today. I especially enjoy the first one as two of my good friends are getting married today in California (congrats Dan and Ellie! sorry it’s not more upbeat…)

dear in joy and part in silence

and their faces ran with blood of
earth loving sons your virtues prove
arjun and on kuru’s king and
lost him to restore the kingdom

bright celestial cars in concourse
lightninglike it came on karna

render honour to thy king and
lost himself and all was still and
torn not the deep and deadly sound
heaving sobs convulsed her bosom
