This Peculiar Existence w/ JESSOP&CO. #1 - West Bengal
'This Peculiar Existence' is a project by Anupal Adhikary and Subho Sen Sharma of JESSOP&CO., a unit based in Kolkata, India which works with music and sound to explore questions of ethnicity, regionality, shared urbanity and its existential dilemmas, crises and provocations. Channelling ethnic and folk music alongside computer-generated and digitally manipulated sketches, the show provides insight into the inhabited existential space of flux and anxiety presented as holistic, odd and 'peculiar'.
This month: beauty, soulfulness and alienation as indigenous folk music of West Bengal is juxtaposed alongside a sonic representation of JESSOP&CO.'s typical one hour journey to work via commuter train.
