Nakul Krishnamurthy is an Indian artist based in Glasgow who works with Indian Classical music. He explores new ways of conceiving it at the intersection of Western Classical, experimental and electronic music traditions. Using procedural approaches and electronic music making techniques, his work experiments with and attempts to reconfigure the structural foundations of Carnatic and Hindustani musics to generate new interpretations and alternative modes of engagement with the art forms.
Through such radical reimaginations, which draw from his extensive study of Carnatic, Hindustani, Western Classical, and Indian Popular music, he attempts to imagine new possibilities for Indian Classical music—possibilities that are sensitive to its history of marginalisation, critically examine and challenge its power and hegemonic status within Indian society, and explore forms of migrant identity formation at the intersection and interstices of cultures.
Nakul’s debut album titled Tesserae was released on Café Oto’s label Takuroku. His work has been presented at various venues and festivals.
