Experimental Music

“Music is what feelings sound like” - Anonymous

Just like a painter paints pictures on canvas, a musician paints feelings on silence. Experimental music pushes against the boundaries or definitions of conventional musical styles, thus allowing the most liberal use of the ‘canvas’. It generally involves new, distinctly unique ingredients and unorthodox structures.

In Swara Sutra, most of my work falls under this category because I feel it gives me an amazing amount of freedom as a composer. This enables me to enrich my music with influences across genres and add in a host of unorthodox transitions. Some of the mainstream experimental artists and bands I admire are Shakti, Dream Theater, Yes and many jazz artists. Indian experimental artists include the likes of Prasanna and Motherjane.
