    I love Indian Fusion music. I also have heard it called Asian Massive, Ethno Techno, etc.

    Well, wait a minute. Do you mean Indian music fused with....

    electronic?

    Or, Indian music fused with what?

    Hi,

    As far as I know Indian classical music uses just intonation? Playing Ragas on a piano would sound strange since pianos use equal temperament. The difference isn't massive, but its noticeable.

    You'd be better off using a stringed instrument like a violin or cello. That way you can adjust the tuning yourself, as you play. Also this would allow for the sliding / portamento that happens a lot in Ragas.

    Good luck!

    Hi Oneiros,

    Ah, but no mention has been made of the trombone - what gives?

    You can *slide* all you want, put in different mutes in the bell - the possibilities are only limited to ones imagination. Here's my baby in the link below:

    LOL

    Thinking about the sound of the trombone, playing a raga... That would be far-out... I'd love to hear it.

    It would be like the Indian equivalent of bagpipes.

    hi thnks for that veiw.... u r right that indian classical playing on piano would not work since that is tepaerament... but did u knw that indain harmonium is also like that only. even u hv noticed that santur in also played like piano... and if we play santur's playing style on piano we can very well play indian raga.....

    Hey I didn't know about the santur. It looks very interesting - just found some photos on the net. Still I wonder - what does the raga sound like on the piano? Is it ok?

    Actually, if you opened the lid and played the strings inside the piano by plucking etc, that might work better...

    How about that write-up! It's straight from the hippy age. Like fully tripped out man!

    The private, metaphysical relations to oneself, to the other, the symbolism of existence are connected, transfigured by the particular expression of raga, classical India music.
