Tabla leather drumheads, wood, and light
Tabla Geodesica - by Seema Lisa Pandya is inspired by polyrhythmic nested sound. It is hand crafted by Seema Lisa Pandya and is made from used tabla pudis (the skins of the Indian classical tabla drum). 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 tabla. When I hear the sound of the tabla (especially the deeper bhya drum) and was taught 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 these forms." 28"x28"x18"
