Let My Country Awake Live

These images are from the debut launch of the AV show for ‘Let My Country Awake’, BISHI’s new electronic classical album, with live coded visuals by Output Arts .

This album, co-produced by myself & Jeff Cook, has been part-inspired by the ground-breaking essay collection, ‘The Good Immigrant’   which urges us to explore our cultural differences, so that we may build more unity and empathy in a divided world.

Originally commissioned by National Sawdust   NYC I trained with composer, Meredith Monk,  during the album’s recording & created it for voice loopers, rock Sitar & electronics inspired by Indian classical and Bulgarian choral vocals. 

The title, ‘Let My Country Awake,’ is a quote from the Nobel prize-winning poet Rabindranath Tagore ’s ‘Where The Mind Is Without Fear,’ written before India’s independence. It represents Tagore’s vision of a new and awakened India.
