A visual representation of Kherewa, which is a rhythmic cycle of 8 beats. Kherewa is a rhythm from the non-classical traditional used in Indian folk music, film sangheet, qawwali and gazal.
This is a collabration with the Shanti Children Project.
The children were then given a simple template to draw their circle artwork. Deo took photographs while they were drawing, when they finished and had some fun taking some more pictures.
Deo scanned the drawing and used the photographs he took to create the video. Using the software Max (Cycling 74) to analysis the sounds Deo played on the tabla drums to control the visuals, he recorded the video live, no editing, no post production.
Available as an art print, iPad and iPhone cases, on mugs and rugs….and more
