The Tareq Masud Award for Debut Film

tAREQ

The history of 20th Century Hindustani classical music and the travelogue of recording in India are inseparable. How does this constant and continuous interplay affect the aesthetics of one of the oldest musical traditions of the world? What is the impact of this influence on the overall musical experience of both the musician and the audience of Hindustani classical music? This film understands this equation through intimate discussions, even as it celebrates the music and art of some of the most gifted musicians the world has ever known.

Pratik is a self-motivated and self-taught sound technician with over eighteen years of experience. He has worked with reputed music labels in more than 100 audio albums of Indian classical, devotional, contemporary and experimental music, including legends like Ustad Bismillah Khan, Ustad Zakir Hussain, Pt. Jasraj, Pt. Shiv Kumar Sharma, Smt. Gangubai Hangal, Smt. Kishori Amonkar and so on. Son-et-Lumière shows installed at prominent heritage sites of India are an expression of his technical as well as creative ability. Besides sound and filmmaking, Pratik has an active interest in photography, sculpture and painting.
