Sound Room VII: "Crumbs and Darkness" is a collaboration between visual artist Egle Oddo and sound artists Ish S (diFfuSed beats | edGeCut), Petri Kuljuntausta and David Rothenberg, which searches for the infinitesimal space between, or a colour.
Ish S (diFfuSed beats | edGeCut)
diFfuSed beats is a duo comprising of Konrad Bayer (Munich) and Ish Shehrawat (Delhi) as they engage with sound with both philosophical and de-constructive aesthetics. They work with sound subjectively and are continuously deconstructing culture perception and hegemonic sounds.
For this collaboration, Ish S will perform works of diFfuSed beats and some of his compositions using 4 audio channel live set which surrounds the audience to give them an immersive spatial experience of the Sounds and music.
