Electronic Indian Music Since 1999

The Color of Time 1Once upon a time…Richard Bernet and Pierre Moitram, both inspired and nurtured by twenty years practice of North Indian music improvisation, met Kapi (Philippe Capitani). In july 1999, they decided to create the group Natarajxt. Masters in the art of improvisation, they developed an exclusive approach to fusing musics. Based mostly on improvisation (some general structures are described ahead). the trio combine traditional modalities and electronic textures. Their concept is unique in France and remains novative in India. The pleasure they find in playing together is repeated at each concert. Nataraj, rejecting all forms of intellectualizing, demonstrate that their music is the beginning of a new journey each time they take the stage.Baby boom children, Pierre and Richard spent their nights playing with the short wave tuner of their imposing TSF radios. Among the frequencies, they were looking for oriental music scraps, that they listened to as amazing journey story tellings. Both discovered India at the end of the 60’s, both studied with great indian masters, Pierre at the sitar (R.I.P), Richard at the esraj and saroj. Today they are signing an astounding pact between indian and electronic music.
