It’s great to see some posts that highlight the intersection of Hindustani-influenced music with electronic instrumentation.
The second piece is one of the best examples I’ve seen of how the Continuum can really add something meaningful to the synth/controller landscape. Nice work!
Thanks a lot.

I still prefer hearing it on acoustic instruments, only because it reveals those “long-earned” skills that people get with decades of training.
BTW, here’s a pretty cool Animoog raga….
