Boundaries challenges and explores the limits of science, music and origin

"There’s something satisfying about the seesaw between disparate pursuits: alternating between periods of analytical problem-solving and long, mentally unfurling stretches of creative practice. Each mode of thinking enriches the other. The music of Sarmistha Talukdar goes a step further by engaging in these practices simultaneously. Through her project Tavishi, she converges her interest in musical composition with her work as a scientist, converting research data into cascades of rhythm and ripples of harmony, while using sound as a unique lens through which to reconsider the patterns and structures present in her research. The end product is a beautiful, somewhat mysterious intersection of Indian music, ambient shimmer, crooks of atonality and sudden bursts of noise." ATTN:Magazine

Track Name: Aage Jodi Jantam Re Bondhu (If I had known earlier, friend)
আগে যদি জানতাম রে বন্ধু
তুমি হইবা পর
ছাড়িতাম কি বাড়ি আমার
ছাড়িতাম না ঘর ।।

উজানে ভাসাইলাম নাও
ভাটি কোথাও নাই
আমি আমার ছিলাম নাকি
তুমি কোথাও না ।।

Aage Jodi Jantam Re Bondhu
Tumi Hoiba Por
Charitam Ki Bari Amar
Charitam Na Ghor

Ujaney bhashailam nao
Bhati kothay nai
Ami amar chilam naki
Tumi kothao nai
