Aashray Harishankar is a composer, producer, and keyboardist based out of Los Angeles, CA. With musical foundations in Carnatic (South Indian classical) music, music production, and jazz, he has a diverse portfolio of work collaborating with artists and musicians throughout the spectrum. Aashray has performed as a soloist and with jazz collective ‘In the Works’ as well as reggae-rock group ‘Light Warriors’. He earned his B.A. in Music & Technology from Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ, and is currently pursuing an M.F.A at California Institute of the Arts.
With "Escapist Music", Aashray continues to innovate in the art of creating immersive experiences through audiovisual media, collaborating with filmmakers, dancers, animators, musicians, fine artists, writers, and storytellers of all kinds. His work often illuminates the connection between our shared experiences and the evolving nature of communication through art, a wrapping of past, present, and future.
His debut album “Flight”, was released worldwide in 2019, and a new project entitled "Navarasa: A Contemporary Karnatic Kutcheri" was released earlier this year. A new EP is due to be released later this year.
