Inspired by his summer residencies at Akademie der Künste in Berlin and the Institute for Speculative and Critical Inquiry in Porto, award-winning sound artist and composer Debashis Sinha activates Modeling, the exhibition space on the Floor 2 at MOCA, with a bespoke and singular sound performance responding to the current exhibition, HOUSE OF CARD by Thomas Demand.
Working in quadraphonic sound with newly composed material expressly designed to reveal the boundaries of physical architecture, Sinha weaves new sound forms responding to and in interplay with the mediations on space and structure that characterise the works by Demand and others currently on display.
Debashis Sinha has appeared as a solo artist at the Sound Symposium, ORF Kunstradio, Deutschlandradio Kultur, the Art Gallery of Ontario, Madrid Abierto, MUTEK, the Guelph Jazz Festival, Radio National Espana, and the International Symposium on Electronic Art, to name a few. His unique take on the place of sound in storytelling has resulted in a long artistic relationship with choreographer Peggy Baker and many collaborations with prominent theatre companies including Soulpepper, Why Not Theatre, The Stratford Festival, and others. He is a committed educator, teaching sound at all levels, and is currently Assistant Professor at Toronto Metropolitan University in Toronto.
