"Quell" is an aural sound journey, using music and field recordings to investigate and present a deeply emotional exploration of Sinha's second home: India.

"from this to this. song and air moving, to speak about family and home, 2 homes that murmur within me. finding that the music i made with my new guitar and other things all spoke of one thing.

5 years old that first time, what stays: the immensity of my grandfather, my mother's father; thinking very hard and spelling the word "brown" right for the first time in the front room in jamshedpur; burning my fingers on sparklers at divali; the open courtyard at the house my father's family rented, the green light of it; the fish bone caught in my throat; the gas factory blowing up; my grandmothers, the smell of their saris, the keys one always carried, the quiet strength of the other, the stories she told me

other things: my father's brothers, as dear to me now as my own; my first trip away, to see and the worry of all of them, the kitchen at my father's house, always my favourite place, the picture i took of her waiting for a train, and tic tac toe with those beautiful boys,somewhere in south india

calcutta; 10 days with out speaking in bodhgayathe blood of family

so long ago, but feeling it all in my hands, feeling it guide me in making this thing that you hold"-Debashis Sinha
