Find me on...

It is now more than two years since I first came across this genius of a conductor, composer and musician - Leonard Bernstein, while researching some basics of music theory in 2011. I don’t think there is a single video of his that has not changed the way I understand and appreciate music. In fact, if there was one reason I’d like to go back in time, it would be to sit for his 1973 Harvard Lecture series titled ‘The Unanswered Question’.

Here in this post I aim to collect some of what I think are his best videos (which need not be seen in any particular order) only some of which I have seen myself. This list shall be updated as I find more.

Here is a remixed version of the Carnatic Side Guitar improv I did last week. This is me trying out the samplr app for ipad (recorded on garageband via audiobus).

Came across this piece while researching for some midi-samplers. Looks like a worthy noisemaker in my arsenal of ipad music making apps. 


As a Product designer and closet musician, musical instruments are close to my heart. Check this artistic sneak peak as to how flamenco guitars are made. 

Some experimentation with slide guitar and Indian Carnatic music. Recorded through a mac on garageband.
