mind with music
Yes, Abhinav Gautam's goal for Seeing Sounds's new "Focus," is to make people focus. And it works -- the seven-song instrumental EP is sharp and persistent, rooted in New Orleans and Indian rhythms, flashing with jazz guitar and piano solos, plus plaintive saxophone wails and electronic synths. But Gautam has even loftier ambitions for his one-man musical project: "The idea was to create a soundtrack that would result in a change in people's brainwaves," he says. "It's like an energetic transfer. Recharging the batteries. Tuning people up. Rebalancing things. The way ginger cleans your palette when you're eating sushi."
In the studio rehearsing for Abracadabra Festival (September 17th - 20th) and just feeling really positive about all the new music to come. Dates and times being announces soon, learn more at:
Had a great time talking to Humana Radio about my new Learn EP. Hit the link below to check it out.
I'm releasing my 5th EP on Friday 8/28 called LEARN. I wrote this EP knowing that many of you (or your kids) will be schooling and working from home. As this can be both frustrating and a bit isolating I wrote these songs to be used as study breaks to help with boosting alpha waves in the brain. Alpha waves are great for finding calm, resetting and improving your ability learn. You can pre-save via Spotify & Apple now!

I always believed there was a mind meld connection on a neural level between musicians and the audience. Nice to see some science backing it up.
