Artist Profile: Varun Murali

  • October 11, 2016

    Varun Murali studied our online Music Production Diploma , and is an integral member of the hugely popular Indian folk fusion band Swarathma, one of India’s top folk rock bands who have played hundreds of shows to people across the country since 2002. Recently they’ve also performed on MTV Unplugged and are currently in the middle of a tour which will see them take their sound far and wide. They are also working hard on their third full length album, where Varun has had the opportunity to make direct use of the knowledge developed on the Diploma course.

    Varun is working on his own material too, and his studio is in its final stages of completion. He’s been excited to invite bands to come over and record at his place. He recently produced an album and engineered it for a local band, and is looking to work with more bands.

    On his time at Point Blank, Varun said: Studying at Point Blank was the most amazing and knowledgeable experience I’ve had so far. Coming from a live music background, I felt so much more confident understanding electronic music production, and interacting with all the great faculty helped me sharpen my production skills in the most creative way possible.”

    Even now when I get stuck with my songs, I just open an FFL video or some of my course material and I seem to find a solution. There is just so much to it that I am exploring all of it every day.”
