MusicMultaniDMA, 2014

In the modern world our senses are bombarded and our collective attention span becomes increasingly shorter. Disciplines are eroded. There is no god. People are soul searching. Where is spirituality?… Can i buy some? We seek instant gratification. MultaniDMA is the fruit of two seeds. The primary seed is the ancient Indian Raga, Raga Multani, more specifically, a recording of my improvised composition in Raga Multani on sitar. The second seed came from observing a temporary shift of consciousness among clubbers. Weekend Nirvana – Mid-week Hell. I took my recording of the ancient Raga Multani and added western, mainly electronic instruments, in an attempt to portray the barrage of ecstasy, enlightenment, disillusionment and angst.
