Ananya Ganesh (b. 1997) is an improviser from Madras based in North America. Their idiosyncratically simultaneous improvisation of the voice and piano lies between the unrealizable and what could be(coming). Playing with and at the limits of the ear and of embodiment, their work unfurls as expressions of indeterminacy, spontaneity, and the joys of dissonance and (in)access. Live performances, improvised from and with disregard for “maps” created for each venue, consist of modular short-form vignettes and long-form works. Ganesh sculpts these open forms through the explorations of dynamics, texture, density, registral color, imbricated lines, and sparseness.
