ABOUT MY WORK, ‘’COLOUR OF THE MIND’’ There are thousands of ragas, and they are all connected with different times of the day, like sunrise or night or sunset. Raag does literally mean 'that which colours the mind', but it is also to true to say that which colours the mind is different to that which colours the eye. Of course, 'colouring' here is figurative, what is really meant is 'that which impresses upon the mind (through sound) its own distinct sensation' However, I am fascinated, not so much by the technical of a raga. but more with what kind of aural or visual depiction the raga actually conveys to me. I tend to unwittingly colour code the ragas, as they appear to me. At other times, it is the equivalent of a particular type of everyday experience that a specific raga can convey. Here I attempt, for the first time, to put down such experiences which are normally visceral. It’s a bit of a challenge, but one I felt was worth taking on. A caveat. This is a purely personal take on the subject, and I do not expect readers to readily weigh in with my flights of fancy. So here’s a selection of ragas, chosen subjectively.
