A staged music work for solo voice and electronics, “Cipher” is a journey through a sonic landscape. Utilizing her practice of “bodysound”—uniting voice, physical gesture, language, and space into potent articulations from raw utterance to speech to song—vocalist and composer Samita Sinha asks is it possible to create a “native” tongue, a contemporary pidgin that gathers and refracts multiple languages, worldviews, and temporalities in a contemporary soundscape that weaves together tones, moods, and languages.



Admission Fee: Price: $20 general admission, $10 students with ID and children 18 and under
