Pooja will gain experience taking two music compositions she created for her Sufi CD and re-purposing them to create two music videos. Pooja will assess the outcome by viewing the videos, through audience response at a public showing, an audience Q and A session and feedback from other musicians and artists she invites to see the work. 2: Pooja will have a new medium (videos) to promote her music locally, nationally and internationally in a cost-effective way. Pooja will invite colleagues, collaborators and presenters at the public showing to seek feedback on the quality and efficacy of the videos as a promotional tool.
As proposed, two music videos were produced from two songs on Pooja's Sufi CD, In What Land's My Beloved and released on YouTube. A written survey handed to the audience with 10 questions, to get feedback on the quality of the concert and lecture-demonstration. 2: A public event was held to formally release the two music videos, followed by a mini-concert, a brief lecture on Sufi poetry and a Q and A session. A written survey handed to the audience with ten questions, to get feedback on the quality of videos and the video release event. A conversation and Q and A session with the film director and Pooja Pavan, at the end of the video release event.
