Pitta of the Mind
Maw Shein Win: poetry - spoken word
Amanda Chaudhary - Electronics

Pitta of the Mind is the duo of Amanda Chaudhary and Maw Shein Win, combining poetry with abstract electronic music. Their highly theatrical performances each center around a theme that is explored via text, sound and visuals.
Amanda Chaudhary is a composer and performer specializing in contemporary and electronic music. Her solo work involves experimenting with innovative sounds via analog synthesis and custom software with computers and mobile devices as well as folk and toy instruments. Her other ensemble projects include Reconnaissance Fly, an art-pop band; and Surplus 1980, a post-punk band.
Maw Shein Win often collaborates with visual artists and musicians, and her latest poetry chapbook, Ruins of a glittering palace, with paintings by Mark Dutcher, was published by SPA/Commonwealth Projects. She is currently a poetry editor for Rivet: The Journal of Writing that Risks for Red Bridge Press, a freelancer at the San Francisco Writers' Grotto, and a co-publisher for Stretcher.
Pitta of the Mind will present the poetry by Maw Shein Win with music by Amanda Chaudhary. The theme of the first half will be abstract art, and the second will focus on cinematic distance. This performance will debut new material by Win and Chaudhary, created specifically for this event.
