“There is a basin in the mind where words float around on thought and thought on sound and sight. Then there is a depth of thought untouched by words, and deeper still a gulf of formless feelings untouched by thought.”
I have been trained in Indian Classical Music - the traditional music of North India - since the age of 7. I have studied at the Prayag Sangeet Samiti in Allahabad (India), Ravi Shankar School of Music (India) as a part of The Mozart Choir of India, and currently study instrumental and voice at the Ali Akbar College of Music.
My compositional work today focuses on extending Indian Classical music to modern electronic musical interfaces. I also work in online radio at NTS Radio and Boxout.fm, with a focus on spreading awareness of Indian Classical artforms of sound and dance. I regularly perform my work in public in spaces all over the world, and have previously performed at Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, Le Guess Who in Utrecht, Mutek, Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, Magnetic Fields in India.
My latest album Under the Lilac Sky was released on Leaving Records in July 2021, and was named the
Guardian's Global Album of the month.
My music has been featured on The Guardian, Pitchfork, Bandcamp, Boiler Room, Ableton, Resident Advisor, FACT, Crack, DJ Mag, Moog, Korg, and more.
