MA IN COMPOSITION AND CREATIVE MUSIC PRACTICE – FINAL PROJECT
SOUND BODY is a video installation and study to explore the human body as an instrument of sound and movement. In the process investigating diverse kinds of relationships that can emerge between sound and movement. Also, visual layering and perspectives creates a bridge between sound and movement.
Nine Rasas (emotions that we encounter in daily life) have been chosen as a basis of these sound movement experiments. The nine emotions are together called Navarasam in ancient Indian performing tradition. Shringara (love/beauty), Hasya (laughter), Karuna (sorrow), Raudra (anger), Veera (heroism/courage), Bhayanaka (terror/fear), Bibhatsya (disgust), Adbutha (surprise/wonder) and Shantha (peace or tranquillity).
