Different Trains 1947 is a brand new audiovisual composition that brings together the historical and contemporary cultures of UK and India.

Different Trains 1947 is a collaboration between Ninja Tune Actress, Jack Barnett (These New Puritans), Indian music producer Sandunes, percussionist Jivraj Singh and vocalist Priya Purushothaman, and filmmakers/artists Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard, who will perform a new audiovisual composition in response to the events of 1947.

Though the performances will comprise entirely new work, as a primary source of inspiration the composers have considered the conceptual and formal framework of Different Trains (1988) by the genre-defining minimalist composer Steve Reich.
