Full Moon Experimental Desert Music Festival
JAISALMER & khuri sand dunes
We thank all the artists for their interest and applications to the Sandscape Art Residency.
This is a performance-based art residency with a focus on creating immersive experiences across Jaisalmer, Khuri, and Barna (such as visit to Gadisar lake, conference at Jaisalmer fort, visits to the desert culture and puppet museum, Patwa haveli, experience dune jeep safari, interactions with the pehchan folk music institute and much more).
Like ancient times , the king’s court invites artists, scientists, philosophers, travelers and storytellers to create art (in their own mediums) with the in city of Jaisalmer, the village of Khuri and the dunes of the Thar desert as your canvas (taking into respect local materials and sustainable processes of production).
After 7 earlier editions of art residencies where we focused on photo essays, music recordings, digital art installations and performances, projection mapping of heritage architecture, creating a modular stage design that is foldable and travel-worthy, fusion of dance forms, video tattoo portraits and projections on the body, and puppets and animations as storytelling tools; we now present a new focus of music rehearsals.
Feb 2020 will see a focus on music creations by creating rehearsal spaces for traveling artists to meet, interact, rehearse and perform with the folk musicians of the Manganiyar, Kalbelia and Langa communities.
Completed pieces can be performed at the dune festival on 8th and 9th feb. All music created will be released at a later point under Sandscape label to ensure that royalties reach folk musicians as well as contributing artists.
To support this creation of fusion music we curate and host artists who are ready to experience the life and culture of the desert.
