. . Music for Documentary

Introducing a groundbreaking collaboration between the esteemed Typotheque team, led by the visionary Peter Bilak, and myself, as the commissioned composer tasked with crafting the musical experience for the release of their extraordinary font designed specifically for India.
At its core, this font project is a celebration of linguistic diversity, aiming to establish a standardized Unicode font that embraces the unique variations found across different regions of India. But it doesn't stop there. The font also embodies a modern aesthetic, poised to weave captivating narratives that will shape the stories of tomorrow.
I started the project by inventing my own vision and started exploring the concept of "Indian Cyberpunk" or neo-futurism. My aim was to create a sound that resonated with the essence of India, without relying on traditional or folklore-inspired elements. Instead, I ventured into uncharted territory, blending experimental rhythms and infusing Western influences into the composition.
The piano played a central role, its captivating melodies acting as a guiding light throughout the documentary's musical landscape. However, it was the fusion of original electronic rhythms that truly captured the font's essence, giving it a distinctive voice and identity.
Through meticulous experimentation, I crafted a musical tapestry that mirrored the font's intention—bringing together tradition and innovation, forging a harmonious connection between the past and the future. It is a testament to the power of artistic exploration and the profound impact that music can have in complementing visual storytelling.
