Sinha's unique constellation of skills as a percussionist schooled in various world music traditions, performer, audio artist, composer, and improviser give rise to a broad range of sound ideas and works, ranging from composed music for fixed media to audio installations and audiovisual performance.
"The central thust of my artistic practice is a desire to consider how and where the worlds of traditional and post-traditional musical/creative practice and tools may meet. Using my training and instruments from a number of different percussion traditions, and interfacing them with electronics and laptop audio tools, I am attempting to make manifest a suspicion that the musical and artistic approaches of traditional and contemporary can inform and influence one another. I believe I am looking for something, expressing something that is part and parcel of the identity of many of my peers---a thoughtful, complex expression of who I am and what inspires me."
