NATIONAL MUSEUM, 2013

The  Musical Landscapes and the Goddesses of Music exhibition, at the National Museum, New Delhi, in 2013, presented advances in  interactive art through an exploration of the science, art and spirituality of music, and their reflections in the Goddess images across Asian cultures.


The project presents one of the world’s first explorations showing the relationship between the sacred feminine and music.


Through a collection of interactive exhibits employing new musical synthesis based on traditional grammar, interactive multimedia installations and recordings of performances by masters, the project will allow viewers to enter the world of sound, musical landscapes, and its cultural and spiritual aesthetics.


The project presents both traditional and new instruments based on the Indian sitar, Burmese saung harp, Thai xylophone, Korean kayagum, Chinese guzheng and pipa, Vietnamese dan tranh, Javanese and Balinese gamelan, chanting, and others.

 

New instruments with embedded computation demonstrate interactions through gesture, touch, pull, movement, gaze and kinesthetic action. In addition, through responsive computing, people by their position, gesture, and movements control musical events in the exhibition environment.

Ranjit,

 

... You continue to expand the territory between the two immaterial worlds: cyber and sacred.

 

Despite the profound importance and validity of this work , I don’t know anyone else doing it. ...please accept this note as evidence of my heartfelt gratitude both for your work and for keeping me current with its progress.
