about

My first attempt at using the concept of raga as the basis for a tune. In this case it was Mayamalavagaula, (C, Db, E, F, G. Ab, B, C) one of the first ragas that a student is taught in Carnatic music. In my case, I was never taught it as such, but just used my own experience from listening over the years and studying other compositions. In terms of form, piece also develops much in the same way a typical “kriti” (popular Carnatic song form) would…. repetition of a theme with gradual development and complexity. And rhythmically it is based on some motifs that I was working on at the time.

It named for the Malabar coast of India (south-west) which is where I was when I wrote it.
