Poulomi Desai’s practice incorporates noise, electronic, performance, composition, sound and installation. Her on-going project ‘Experiments with Noise’ explores sound and colour frequencies as an allegorical interpretation of The Lombard Reflex. She is director of Usurp project space, which is the only contemporary artist-led gallery and studios in the London Borough of Harrow that develops opportunities for communities to work with artists, musicians, performers, designers and activists from diverse backgrounds. Desai has had past involvement with the Southall Black Sisters and has recently performed at Agency of Noise event. She will be performing with her expanded sitar and bringing a participatory project relating to Usurp’s ideals.
