B Prasanna - Electronic Press Kit
B Prasanna is a music composer from Chennai, India whose musical influences range from Michael Jackson to Claude Debussy. He relishes writing for live ensembles & orchestras and also loves the art and craft of sound & production. This crossover of sensibilities reflects in his original works. After dabbling around in new media production & tech entrepreneurship early on in his career, B Prasanna took to music seriously in 2016 and started composing for indie feature films, commercials, theatre productions, etc.
He first learnt Mridangam, a south Indian percussion instrument. The "percussiveness" that the training inculcated served as his torch light to explore melody, harmony & other forms of music. His music is churned by the constant tug of war between his love for the old and excitement for the new.
GAGAN DHUAN DHUAN (OPUS 3)
B Prasanna's new original, Gagan Dhuan Dhuan, a song in Hindi released on the 11th of June, 2022 on his Youtube channel and other major streaming platforms. The song features the Oscar-nominated Bombay Jayashri on vocals and lyrics are penned by Preetika Dixit. The music video is directed by Sriram Raja.
Gagan Dhuan Dhuan is an ode to the impressionist era. It is custom-made for the enchanting quality of Bombay Jayashri’s voice and range. It flows with her vocal from start to end, sans any interludes or non-sequiturs. The song is an impression of a woman sitting by the window and singing to herself, all alone in her hill-top house. Her voice reflects her nostalgia, while the music feeds off the nature around her.
