Indian Music Experience (IME) Workshop

December 9, 2022 (Friday)

As a satellite event for ISMIR 2022, we are organizing an Indian music experience workshop for the participants of ISMIR 2022. The event will be hosted at the Indian Music Experience Museum in Bengaluru, which is India’s first interactive music museum comprising hands-on interactive artifacts on different forms of music in India including art, folk and film music. The physical-only day-long informal workshop is planned to be a unique experience to introduce the MIR community to the diverse and rich music traditions of India through guided museum visits, short introductory workshops, an exhibition on contemporary Indian music, and informal interactions between invited experts and the members of the MIR community. Through the workshop, we hope to establish cross-disciplinary connections, initiate discussions and foster future collaborations on MIR for Indian music.

The satellite event will include two workshops. A workshop of melodic aspects of Hindustani music by two of the leading musicians of Indian Vid. Aneesh Pradhan and Vid. Shubha Mudgal. The event will include a workshop on Carnatic music rhythm and percussion by one of the most sought-after mrindangam artists Vid. Akshay Anantapadmanabhan.

The participants will have the opportunity to attend either or both the workshops depending on their interest and availability. Outside of the workshops, the participants can take guided tours of the museum or leisurely visit the museum at their own pace. The event ends with a high-tea and interaction session with the artists and other participants.
