Arushi Jain is a modular synthesist, singer, producer and radio host with an unorthodox vision of a centuries-old tradition – one that’s electronic, for a start, and resolutely DIY. Her compositions are rooted in Hindustani classical ragas, explored in an aesthetic that is firmly untraditional and innovative.
Growing up in Delhi, learning Indian classical and other regional music from a young age, Arushi moved to California to study Computer Science at Stanford University, where she was introduced to computer generated sounds and synthesis at the Centre for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA). Her music is a unique reinterpretation of her two contrasting worlds colliding, in which ancient ragas from north india are re-imagined with the tools and technologies she learnt as a synthesist and technologist in the bay area.
Arushi is also the founder of GHUNGHRU, a radio series and record label that started out of San Francisco that frequently hosts shows on NTS Radio and boxout.fm, and popularly known by her monikers Ose and Modular Princess. Her music has been featured on platforms such as Ableton, Boiler Room, Composer Magazine, FACT, Mix Mag, Bandcamp, XLR8R and Vogue.
