Debashis Sinha has been crucial to the development of the sonic world of Century Song. Working with creators Ross, Neema and Kate, Debashis (along with pianist Gregory Oh) creates a live improvised soundscape onstage every night. We're so lucky to have Deb's unique electroacoustic sound as a part of Century Song's journey through the past century of art, history and emotion.
Get to know Deb through this Q&A:
Q: What moment in the show always delights you or takes your breath away?
A:The very last note and move that Neema does of the Aperghis-the moment before Gregory and I launch into the response. So lovely and powerful, and a testament to Neema’s incredible strength and artistry.
Q: What moment from the past Century do you wish you’d been a witness to?
A:I wish I was in Berlin the night the wall fell.

Q: Music is at the heart of Century Song.Do you listen to music to get ready before the show?
A:Absolutely not. I like to keep my mind clear.
Q: This show’s been in development for 5 years. Have you ever done anything else that took five years?
A: Other than be a dad, no.
Q: Can you tell us about a surprising or memorable moment during the creation of Century Song?
A: The first time I saw Neema run through what she and Kate had been working on - I was completely flabbergasted at how amazing she was! And so thankful to have been asked to be a part of it. And completely unsure of how anything I could do could make it better.
