Watch: Red Bull Music Academy’s ‘Studio Science’ With Karsh Kale
14 June 2017
In the very first Indian installment of Red Bull Music Academy’s Studio Science series, Karsh Kale showcases the electronic version of an Indian classical instrument: the tabla.
The Studio Science series looks at the laboratories of some of the world’s most creative musicians. Each episode offers tips and tricks for aspiring artists and has featured the likes of Four Tet, Disclosure and electronic music pioneer Suzanne Ciani.
Tabla pioneer and celebrated multi-instrumentalist Karsh Kale is the focus of the first-ever episode shot in India. Premiering today, 14 June, it features Karsh along with the Karsh Kale collective (guitarist Warren Mendonsa, bansuri (flute) player Ajay Prasanna, Jai Row Kavi on drums, Karan Deshmukh on percussions, Apeksha Dandekar on vocals, Nathan Thomas on bass and Delhi-based live act Shadow & Light).
In the episode, Karsh takes the audience through his inspirations and how he designed and uses the tabla in an electronic context before a laid-back jam session with the Karsh Kale collective.
“I love the idea of bringing people into the intimate details of our unique studio approaches and set ups. Each artist figures their own way to navigate the infinite possibilities of the studio and Red Bull Music Academy ‘Studio Science’ is a great platform to open that door for aspiring artists and producers.” - Karsh Kale
