In this PhD presentation, Mathuriga Thevapalan, a second-year
PhD student, explores the connection between pre-existing
materials and improvisation within the realm of Karnatak music.
This exploration unfolds through three distinct compositions
preceded by non-metric improvisation, presented by herself,
Professor Karaikudi S. Subramanian, and fellow PhD student
Thenuga Thevapalan on the South Indian stringed instrument Vina.

Professor Karaikudi S. Subramanian is a senior most South
Indian classical musician and educator, representing the 9th
generation of the Karaikudi Vina tradition. He assumes a unique
position as a performer and educator. His research unfolds at the
interface of authentic traditional practices and modern institutional
approaches. In 1989, KSS founded the music institute ‘Brhaddhvani
– Research & Training Centre for Musics of the World’ in Chennai.

His research initiatives have paved the way for meaningful
collaborations with prominent artists and scholars across various
music genres and arts disciplines. The culmination of his research
efforts is the development of the learning methodology COMET
(Correlated Objective Music Education and Training).

Admission is free and all are welcome.
