Naad: The Sound Memory is a multimedia art ensemble that tries to capture the ancient Indian philosophical enquiry into sound as a critical category in understanding the rhythmic patters of the universe in relation to human existence. This creative process explores another concept of the 'bindu' which is closely associated with the journey of sound. The sound dissolves in a bindu. There is an inherent desire of every sound produced. There are several stages through which sound travels and gradually manifests itself. This journey can be read along the path a human agency follows. If an individual is a point, a repertoire of sound memories (which have nourished her/him since the birth of prana within the womb) connect with other sound memories like a bindu does with another to form a pattern of communication with the cosmic sound. This eventually resonates with the universal emotions across time and space.
To capture this philosophy, an actor manifests herself/himself in different forms represented by different bodies which are again manifestations of an essence- the various emotions, spiritual - material longings, reflections on past experiences- creating images of visual, auditory, tactile memories.
This multimedia presentation will be interwoven with contemporary, creative, classical and folk movements to crystallise the suggestiveness of this creative essemble which is an open ended production and is essentially participatory in nature. This will be an amalgamation of spoken words, movements that will create a new language of urban creative intervention steeped in Indian performance traditions.
