Spiritus - The EP

Spiritus (Latin for 'spirit' or 'breath') marks the beginning of a musical adventure based on the world music genre. While 'Ortum Spiritus' (Rise of the Spirit) has an orchestra feel to it, 'Be in my arms' and 'The golden eyed girl' are soft and romantic tracks with soft and delicate piano notes. 'Sensation' brings together Indian and Western music by fusing the traditional Tabla-Sitar with Drums and Saxophone. The Strings in 'The Reunite' gives it an orchestral feel and the drum beat blends in smoothly.

Intoxicated - The Album

Intoxicated is the second album after the successful debut album Spiritus. Arranged around the euro/techno/fusion genre(s),
Intoxicated is a perfect blend for any high energy party. The tracks derive their names from the most popular alcoholic beverages and each track promises to deliver an experience that will make you musically high.
I personally enjoyed arranging "Tequila (Punjabi Mix)" as it includes the sound & energy of the Punjabi Dhol and the royal sound of the Shankh.

Annika - Single

Enjoy this gorgeous fusion of flute and soft beats. While composing, I visualized a free floating boat in a calm lake on a beautiful day.

A big thanks to Peter Dalley, my Economics professor whose Facebook photo post inspired the entire arrangement.

Chantal- Single

A blend of rock metal guitar with fast paced drums. Surprisingly, even though Chantal is a fast paced track, I was visualizing a calm view with the moon shining bright and it's reflection visible in a softly flowing river.

Shroud Of Turin - Single

The blend of the gospel choir with the slow marching drums is a representation of the final moments when Jesus was laid in his tomb. The Shroud of Turin or Turin Shroud itself is a factual linen cloth of a Medieval origin. It is commonly associated with Jesus, his crucifixion and burial, and regarded by many Christians as a contact relic of Jesus.

Sonakshi - Single

Sonakshi is my first original composition and arrangement. I used the iOS DAW app called Xewton Music Studio controlled by my Yamaha PSR E433 acting as a MIDI keyboard via USB. The entire song was recorded and edited on the iPad itself with the final mastering completed on Sony's Sound Forge Pro using the iZotope effects plugin.

Sunrise - Single

Explore your inner self in this dreamy guitar and flute collaboration. The Native American guitar has a dreamy feeling, representing the waking up stage, the flute represents the soft breeze and the drums stand for the awakening moments. I arranged this with the beauty of Kamloops in mind.

Rorschach- Single

I visualized an action packed scene while arranging this: High intensity activities like parkour and rollerbladding. You could also visualize an action chase scene. Jump right into this action packed theme. Rorschach - what do you see?

BUYLISTEN
Eternal Flame- Single

Experience a smooth blend of traditional and Rumba Flamenco. This arrangement was inspired by another Spanish composition I heard at that time, by Slash, titled Obsession Confession.

BUYLISTEN
League Of Gamers- Single

I arranged this as a dedication to my gamer friends while visualizing an action/war game's main menu screen.

BUYLISTEN
Olivia - Single

Olivia is an easy listening/smooth jazz blend that I arranged primarily for end credits scenes or Q&A sessions after my presentations. I really enjoy the sound of the Jazz Guitar that fades out with the rest of the music... only to come back in full Jazz swing.

Seduction - Single

Sit back, relax and let the music set the mood for that special evening with your special someone. I arranged this with a romantic and passionate love making scene in mind. More like the traditional and sensual Kamasutra. What do you visualize?

Rain Of My Love - Single

Drums + Guitars + Vocals. This song has the three generic elements found in every popular song out there. I arranged this to be nonsensical on purpose. Don't believe me? Listen to the lyrics carefully.

LIVE at TRU IDays 2015

Thompson Rivers University's International Days (IDays) is an opportunity to share culture, international experience, research and interests. For IDays 2015, I got a spot in the Old Main building on Student Street where I played for an entire hour! It was a great feeling to be a part of such an amazing exchange of cultures and I enjoyed interacting with people.

LIVE at TRU In-Service Day

It's a beauty to play the 1994 baby grand piano located at the Campus Activity Center (CAC) at Thompson Rivers University, Kamloops. Fun fact: For the very first track in my set, Alex Sokolovskiy and I had met the day before and when I started playing 'Let it Be' by the Beatles and he just began singing. It's amazing how music connects people! :)
