Donn Bhat + Passenger Revelator (India)
Date: Sunday, 7th December, 2014
A genre-defying, live experimental electronica producer and composer, Donn Bhat has been a familiar face and name in the music scene since the release of his debut album in 2006. In the years since, his music has been featured on a number of platforms, including the MTV TV series Bring On The Night. In 2011, he was featured as the BBC artist of the month on the Bobby Friction show aired in the UK.
With his desire to begin performing the music he had been writing, in 2013 Donn Bhat put together a band that debuted at Ziro Festival and then went on to play gigs across the country and win a number of fans in the process. The dreamy electro/pop single "Stars Align" became an especially big hit for Donn Bhat and has received a great deal of radio airplay since.
With the release of the album 'Passenger Revelator', Donn Bhat will take his music live with a smaller setup – minus the band – while still collaborating with various musicians along the way. Says Donn, “Having played my music with a full band at festivals and gigs last year, I believe my sound is now gravitating towards the experimental electronic space where the music remains ‘live’ and performance oriented, and moves the listener both physically and emotionally. I also want to lay an emphasis on visuals as an integral part of the live experience. With the masked astronaut as our motif in our artwork, we will travel with him on his journeys into the past and future. The road is open, these are exciting times ahead.”
