The project ‘Eye Contact with the City’ explores emerging urban environments in India, and is based on hybrid spatial experience in the domain of sound and moving image. Infusing spatial perception, auditory cognition and immersion, the project creates a premise for in-depth observation and critical reflection on emergent urban spaces in India. The outcome of the project has been varied, from site-specific sound/video installation (premier show at Rococo Art Gallery, Bangalore) to sound composition for live multi-channel performance.
The sound/video installation has received an Honorary Mention in the Digital Music/Sound Art category of PRIX Ars Electronica 2011 and has been released with Touch Music as an .m4v video for iPhone/iPod/iPad.
The sound composition is slated for release on German label Gruenrekorder in March 2013.
