Visualising Carnatic Music Theory
During this two-week design workshop, Influencing Information, I worked on simplifying and visualising the relationship between Melakarta Rāgams and Swarams. These are amongst the vital elements that form Carnatic music. I worked on this under the guidance of Prachi Nagpal. This course helped me realise my new-found interest in the field of Data Visualisation while simultaneously rekindling my love for Carnātic music.
