C sharp C blunt is based on the concept of the loop. An electronic musician is live on stage, he creates and layers loops from live sound. The loop in its nature reflects the training of the singer through endless repetition, but also the process of cultural and social “programming“. This cultural “programming“ also defines the specific way, girls and women are supposed to behave. Sandox collaborated to present the show in Bangalore, Mumbai, Pondicherry and Goa, across venues and festivals.
