Tabla Geodesica - by Seema Lisa Pandya 2016 is hand crafted by Seema Lisa Pandya and are made from used tabla pudis (the skins of the Indian classical tabla drum) donated by tabla schools and professional tabla percussionists. Each round 'pudi' has had hundreds of hours of concentrated energetic rhythmic practice by musicians until the skin is no longer usable. "I was once a former student learning to play the tablas. When I hear the sound of the tabla (especially the deeper bhya drum) and was taught different rhythimic patterns indicative to classical Indian music, I experience these sounds visually as a rhythmical "push-pull" "inhale-exhale" balance that is a fundamental building block of natural forms. I have woven these rhythmical instrument parts together to represent these forms."  28"x28"x18"

Tabla Geodesica is handcrafted by Seema Lisa Pandya made from used 'tabla pudis' (the skins of the Indian classical tabla drum) donated by tabla schools and professional tabla percussionists. Each round 'pudi' has had hundreds of hours of concentrated energetic rhythmic practice and meditative touch by musicians until the skin is no longer usable. "I was once a former student learning to play the tablas." says Seema. "When I hear the sound of the tabla (especially the deeper bhya drum) and the different rhythmic patterns indicative to classical Indian music, I experience these sounds visually as a rhythmical push-pull / inhale-exhale balance that is a fundamental building block of natural forms. I have woven these rhythmical instrument parts together to represent the primordial form of sound as I experience it".
