Perennial music maker and sound artist Ranjit Bhatnagar will be exhibiting The Singing Room for one week only in May at NYC’s Clocktower Gallery.
The Singing Room is a place for anyone to sing freely, and in public. The room has been built with the “Shy Person” in mind, allowing them to sing without being exposed to the assumed scrutiny of others. Visitors are invited to sing in a small sound proof room. As they sing, the musical instruments outside of the room, abstractly interpret their singing. Each syllable pronounced by the singer is projected as musical and/or acoustic sounds. The installation is deliberately loud, further ensuring that that Shy Person cannot be heard.
