Somin Griffin-Dave

Somatic is a dual-heritage Indian-English Sound Artist born and raised in Exeter. His diverse creative practice encompasses sound and music for theatre, dance, screen, club dancefloors and DJing. Although his sound is rooted in sound systems and dance music culture he takes influence from the rural landscape he grew up in and the myriad of genres from around the world he was brought up on to create his unique sonic identity.

His past work includes: Sonic Landscapes of Colour – a 2-part audio-documentary sharing the stories of young people of colour who have grown up in the South West, broadcast on the BBC, The VR film “Child of Empire” which premiered at the Sundance film festival, DJ sets at festivals such as Boomtown & Glastonbury, The play Daytime Deewane (Nov 22 – OFFIE Finalist Best Original Sound Young Peoples Theatre) set ‘in the last daytimer’ in 1997 and over 450k+ plays on streaming platforms.
