Shor, the art of expression!
Shor is a print and digital magazine, initiative by Skip Saga Pvt Ltd (edition 01). Skip focuses on promoting the art of expression through different mediums, music being one of the major sources, that makes art relatable.
Contemporary electronic music production has served to score the memories of a generation here in India, but with one element strangely absent - voice and vernacular. As Lifafa, Suryakant Sawhney has spent five years exploring uncharted terrain in this part of the world: electronic music that not only speaks in sonics but also of words and meaning. The audience for this music is unknown. Via an ongoing exploration of Hindi and Urdu, a constant refinement of his own production techniques, and his instinctive take on melody and cadence, this music - spiritual and sensual, familiar and alien - has caught the attention of audiences not just in urban, Anglicised India, but in less obvious corners of this country, and beyond. Undefined and yet familiar, it presents a compelling insight into what the future of music from this region could be.
Haan carried forward the intent of curating stories, highlighting some of our favorite exhibitions into visual narrative, put together in 2019.
LOST IN MAIZE, 2021
This is an ongoing series, takes on the importance of 'Bhutta' or Corn and stories that come along with it. Between the paradox of being whole, with every cell being different. In a city on a rainy day or in a field of maize with summer winds against our face, Bhunna-Bhutta heightened our senses. To be a part of the Lost in Maize exhibit, submit your corn story below.
LET'S GO OFF THE GRID
Stumbled across one of the most beautiful markets in India, Surrounded by fresh produce and flowers. It was the golden maize that caught our attention, Lost in Maize captures our Corn spread.
The value of Upcycling, rethinking our actions was put to actions so well in this township both in words and practice. Between objects and routine is one of the iterations developed and inspired here.
Deconstrukt was created in the fathomless landscape of the mighty ladakh, in its white glory. The variety in this highland, made us wonder, whether we dreamt of 'one day' or 'day one'
Transported right back to the 70’s, Kolkata has managed to keep a strong sense of community intact despite being a metropolitan. The lingering effect of this association inspired us to create Transient Atoms.
The tranquility on the Coromandel coast allowed us to ponder upon our actions and intentions. How we are driven so strongly via memories, maneuvering through life.
