Coming from an artistic family, music played a major role in his life from a very young age. His inspiration for composing music in the Film, Television, Video Game industry came from being a huge film buff and coming to the realisation that music played a crucial role in conveying those impactful and emotional moments that he cherished within visual mediums. He comes from a background in jazz and specialises in woodwind instruments, mainly the alto saxophone and the clarinet. Having studied under both the British ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) and American Berklee College syllabuses, Chinmay can read and write music notation as well as understand music theory at an advanced level.
Apart from jazz, Chinmay also has a keen interesting in composing within genres like funk, soul, hip-hop, minimalism, orchestral and electronic music as well as traditional Latin American, African and Asian forms of music giving him an eclectic music palette while still being flexible enough to work within the confines of a clients needs. His main compositional influences include Jerry Goldsmith, Ennio Morricone, Herbie Hancock, Steve Reich, Philip Glass, Eric Dolphy, Moondog and Thomas Newman.
In the future, Chinmay hopes to combine his love for music and films with other areas of interest such as dance, graphic novels (especially those from Japan known otherwise as manga) and sports (huge fan of tennis and a former national level player) to push the boundaries and experiment with the intermingling of these various mediums.
Apart from films and games, he would also love to work on the music for documentaries similar to the works of composers like Philip Glass and Michael Stearns on non-narrative/experimental films like Koyaanisqatsi, Baraka, Samsara and Chronos.
