Bio

Latest release: Amino Acid


“Cold, angular guitar lines snake like steel cables over squelchy, futuristic basslines. Shiny piano chords stab out from nothingness, while sections of free-jazz improvisation are punctuated by blips, squeals and bursts of harsh static. Jazz, industrial and Carnatic music all count as influences but Datta deconstructs these old forms and rearranges the fragments into a new sonic architecture that is at once cold, brutal and breathtaking. This is music as science, or maybe surgery, as Datta sculpts sound with a sharp scalpel. What it lacks for warmth, it makes up for in its alien, abstract beauty.”

If A Then Not A


In intricate dance against the tyranny of the oppressive force of analytic logic, carried by the euphoric chaos of these streets, we present an urgent yet convincing argument in refutation of the priority of epistemology over ontology.

Modal manipulations manifest musically in a bizarre world in which if A then not A.

The sceptical threat remains a constant worry as the complex contingencies of beats and melodies force us to re-confront the ordinary.

The transparency of the self is obscured in an effort to become the possibility of impossibility. We encounter a hammer first and foremost as a hammer, not a wooden vessel.

In a pre-ontologic quest to make present the distant, we reawaken the question of Being.

Traditional time signatures and diatonic harmonies refuse to explain the uncanny melodies that permeate through the crowds of rickshaw wallas, deteriorating ambassadors, goats and cows. We provide a contemporary urban aesthetic justification of the modern day ethical.
