Debashis Sinha's creative output spans a broad range of genres and media, from solo audiovisual performance projects on the concert stage to the interior spaces between 2 headphones. Driven by a deep commitment to the primacy of sound, Sinha has developed his creative voice by weaving together his own experience as a 2nd generation south Asian Canadian, his training with master drummers from various world music traditions, a love of electronic and electroacoustic music and technology, and a desire to transcend the traditional expectations of how these streams might intersect and interact.
The source material Sinha uses is put to various tasks, from pieces that explore and abstract his cultural heritage and experience, to more open works that result from a directed focus on distilling the elements of his sources into their component parts of light and sound. The wide range of audio, video and audiovisual works, while varying in concept and content, are nonetheless a result of an artist with a fierce desire to expand the notions of what it means to express and be influenced by a life in/between cultures.
Sinha's continuing musical practice and re-interpretation of himself as an artist comfortable working in various media have allowed him to realize projects and performances internationally. He has been a recipient of grants from The Canada Council for the Arts, The Ontario Arts Council, the Toronto Arts Council, and the Chalmers Foundation.
