Praveen Sparsh

There is music we seek out and listen to, and then there is the music that is simply around us, yet rarely heard.  There are melodies, rhythms, simple and complex, aural elements that blur the line between 'just sounds’ and ‘music’. Unreserved is an attempt at bringing these elements to the foreground, and letting the mridangam interact with these soundscapes. The artiste has sampled these sounds in their raw setting, created a digital template and then played the mridangam over it, letting the various elements collide in a beautiful spectrum of chaos, yet with a natural progression that very literally, allows the music to create itself.

"This album draws us into every sound that we take for granted, be it the honk of an autorickshaw horn, the whispering wind or the aural shades that emanate from the mridangam. A stunning experiment."

"Praveen Sparsh sets the bar very high for himself in this album. The rhythmic soundscapes of Chennai, the ambient sounds, the sharp horns, the sizzling konnakol leads us to the melodic Mridangam and symphonic climax in a halluninatory spiral. The new, the classical, the techno and ground breaking recording and mixing techniques makes this one the most innovative albums I have heard in a long time."
