About the Artists: 

Aki Onda is a New York-based artist and composer. He is particularly known for his “Cassette Memories” — works compiled from a “sound diary” of field-recordings collected by using the cassette Walkman over a span of last quarter-century. He creates compositions, performances, and visual artworks from those sound memories. Onda often performs in interdisciplinary fields and collaborates with filmmakers, visual artists, and choreographers, including Ken Jacobs, Michael Snow, Raha Raissnia, Akio Suzuki, and Takao Kawaguchi. Onda’s work has been presented numerous institutions such as MoMA, The Kitchen, documenta 14, Pompidou Center, Louvre Museum, Palais de Tokyo, Bozar, and many others.

Samita Sinha combines tradition and experiment to compose vocal performance works that investigate cultural inheritance and the experience of being a body in the world. Works include This ember state (2018, commissioned by Asia Society), bewilderment and other queer lions (2016, commissioned by Performance Space 122 and Invisible Dog Art Center for COIL Festival) and Cipher (2014-15), a solo work that toured nationally. She has composed and performed original scores for dance and theater works by Dean Moss, Fiona Templeton, and Preeti Vasudevan, vocal directed for Daria Fain and Robert Kocik, and performed with Sekou Sundiata and Robert Ashley. Sinha teaches voice extensively, including at the Rubin Museum of Art, Centro Nacional de las Artes (Mexico City), Swarthmore College and Womankind (formerly New York Asian Women’s Center).
