About this event

Follow Jason Singh through the beautiful gardens at Dartington, absorbing sound, shifting gradients, temperature and smell to inspire reflection.

Jason Singh is a sound artist, nature beatboxer, producer, DJ, facilitator and performer. His work is inspired by the natural world and includes: live performance, immersive sound installations, live film accompaniment, radio broadcasts and sound design.

Referred to as “the human sampler” by Cerys Matthews (Radio 6), Singh also vocally recreates birdsong and natural environments. His work has been called “beautiful, strange, calming music” by nature writer Robert Macfarlane and Jason has also featured on the 2019 BBC Lost Words prom, BBC Radio 4 Pick of the Year, Springwatch and Countryfile.

Singh’s collaborations and commissions include a diverse range of organisations and artists including BBC, V&A Museum, Kew Gardens, Chester Zoo, BFI, Celtic Connections, RNLI, Music for Youth, National Trust, Tate Britain, Yazz Ahmed, Shabaka Hutchings, Sarathy Korwar, Nitin Sawhney, Talvin Singh, Rokia Traore to name but a few.

Singh is an associate artist and creative consultant with Music For Youth and resident artist at Bristol Music Trust. He is also visiting lecturer at the Guildhall Hall School of Music and Drama and an awardee of the PRS New Music Biennial Award.

This event is part of Black Atlantic, a new decolonial cultural project at the intersections of race, art, ecology and climate justice. Jason can also be seen at Sensing the Planet, a unique gathering of leading decolonial thinkers, artists and activists that will launch the project on 29-31 October.
