Shruthi Vishwanath, Pune & Sylvia Hinz, Berlin

Shruthi is a musician, composer and educator. She works at the intersection of form and label – incorporating the classical and the folk, multiple languages, poetry and movement into music. At the heart of her work are the mystic poets of South Asia, especially those at the margins of gender and caste. She has performed extensively, both in India and overseas.

Sylvia is praised for her equally fierce and bold dramatic performance style; she is one of the leading recorder players worldwide, specialised in contemporary music and improvisation. She plays solo recitals and concerts, fosters international collaborations with other artists in general, and engages in #ArtAsActivism. Sylvia performs with her project Catenation and her band Coma Cluster Void.

Resonxnce – Dissonxnce is a musical diary by two female musicians, made as a response to our lives around the pandemic that challenges notions of what musicality and melody is. Is melody musical, is dissonance musical? Through a call-and-response every day, the two artists will weave together the stories of their lives across continents in a sonic piece for the times.
