This culminating experience (CE) project is a four song collection composed, produced, and partially engineered by the author, Shankara Srikantan. The songs draw from the theory and influence of South Asian semiclassical and American Pop/R&B music, alluding to the two cultures that inform the author's musical intuitions. The production process revolved around the recording and processing of analog (and analog-sounding virtual) instruments and vocals. The song lyrics are in both Hindi and Tamil, but belong together sonically.
