On Sunday, March 12th, New Delhi based music collective REProduce Artists will collaborate with the first edition of Indie Art Week, opening the week long series of events around the capital with an event inspired by theREProduce Listening Room series. The series aims to fill a gap in the ever iterating and increasingly varied community of live music in India by showcasing talent that might not get heard in the more mainstream oriented venues. Listening Room will focus purely on the music – in a space where an audience can absorb sound on their own terms.
For this iteration they will return to Khoj International Artists' Association, after nearly a years absence. Along with seven performances across multiple floors, they will also present a separate contained space dedicated to screening a series of short films, curated by Slingshot Festival. Slingshot takes over five blocks in Athens, Georgia at the end of March, showcasing a wide range of curated music, electronic art, and technology.
