Glimpses of applied research on Indian music & art (GARIMA)

GARIMA is an international meeting series organized by brainrhythm database, a joint effort by National Institute for Materials Science, Japan and University at Buffalo, USA in association with International Institute of Invincible Rhythms. Our first meeting would be on 19th March 2022, from 10.00AM to 5pm Indian standard time, IST.

Topics to cover:

  1. Identifying the pattern of frequencies and musical features connected to brain disease and its relief. Is there a hidden grammar?

  2. Inventing new musical instruments to incorporate both Indian music and biological rhythms

  3. Studying human subjects with state-of-the-art technologies for a better understanding of the musical connection with emotion and perception.

  4. Exploring geometric pattern of frequencies in Raga and mathematics embedded in the Indian music and art of various forms, anharmonic overtones.

  5. Developing a scientific method for composing music: the role of language and perceptions of words, a perspective on sanskrit.

Speakers would present their key achievements in the sequence below, experiences and visions in a very short time (10-15 minutes), which we cannot learn from their publicly available lectures and literatures. Its a free conversation, no strict time limit.
