Precipitate takes you through the journey of a damaged girl who has grown up to participate in all negative indulgences. When we usually look at a girl or a person like this, our reaction is judgement. Our music video throws light on the cause, the childhood and background of what led to this present scenario. Rejection, loss and ignorance moulded her childhood, she learnt from the worst and became a bitter person.

Mozart’s requiem creates a sense of uneasiness and heaviness, there is a gradual but highly intense rise in the piece, at the same time suggesting how beautiful the chaos is. There are sudden pauses that complement each of our unique tunes added.
This incredible bronze sculpture of Lord Shiva or ‘Nataraja’, the primary Hindu god of creation and destruction, was created over 1000 years ago by the Chola. Chola Dynasty was ascendant from 850 to 1250 CE in Southern India. They were devotional people who built beautiful temples, statues and palaces in honour of the gods. This is a statue of Lord Shiva doing the dance of death or ‘Tandav’, which descirbe his great power and beauty, around a ring of fire. His hair is radiating outward with a idol of Ganga resting on it, the goddess of river Ganga, which descended from Lord Shiva’s hair. Shiv has been depicted with four hands. One hand holds the double-sided drum or ‘Damru’, who’s music restores life, the left most arm(right-side) holds the fire of destruction, and the other two performing the ‘mudra’ or the posture of the dance. He is standing on the a dwarf called Apasmara, who is known to be the dwarf of ignorance. The crown and necklace of Lord Shiva are heavily ornamented, the cresent moon clearly visible at the centre of his crown. Shiva also shelters the snake on his arm as it is believed that Shiva controles all fear and death, hence he wears the dangerous reptile as an ornament. This perfection and deatiled work was cast out of a single piece, the work of a true Chola artist indeed.

This sound track is a fusion of the sounds that represent India bulls. It starts off with a knocking sound on the newly made wooden flooring progressing to the sound each ones feet makes on the shining, slippery marble flooring. There is a constant increase in the pace of the beats, which mechanically creates a sense of rhythm. The soundtracks are merged into one another and at the same time creating a relapse. The mid section creates a kind of break with the calming orchestral music and once again shifts into the loud gushing of the water and sweeping sound. It gives its listeners a very chaotic impression. The sudden beep sounds are symbolic of every entrance in the building and tends to create an unbroken beat, which constantly goes back and forth. What is unique is the abrupt ending that gives a feel of the swiftness.
A sense of a mechanical and organised way of working. There is a subtlety in the way the background noise almost lingers throughout the track which constantly gives a sense of a public space almost like a station. There is intentional knocking and creation of sound to give a sense of the material that composes the space. This awkward mechanical mood is abruptly broken by the sound of the opera which is also constant but subtle in the premise. This fluidity is music is followed by the sound of the fluidity in water. The track then flows into the noisiness and crowded canteen with more murmur than people. There is a sense of constant check and security in this building which is represented through the endless beeping of scanning machines. This almost repetitive and diverse range of sounds that transfers itself from one genre to another is a part of my automatic, everyday life.
This song comprises of many distinct sound segments that are fused together to form an unusual but catchy piece. The progression of each segment, although abrupt, has a certain beat to it. The intensity and pitch of the sound rises through the song and ends with a sudden honk. The song conveys a journey where you come across sounds of various activities linked together. The beeping towards causes a certain anxiety which rises up till the climax honk which makes the song memorable. The sound also reminds me of beat boxing as each individual segment in the sound has a certain rigid structure to it.
The object in the picture seems to be in its raw form. It could be an abstraction of a complicated process or a representation of an activity. There is a transparent cylinder filled with water, with a smaller cylinder of wood immersed in it. Double discs surround the cylinder and are supported by a square stand with rectangular base. The resonance of the basic shapes of each component adds to the simplicity and elegance of the product. The product itself reminds me of the traffic check posts and water pipe locks. Even though the associations of this object indicate a functional character, the object itself seems to be aesthetically appealing and meant as a gift item or show piece. The purpose of the wood piece inside the cylinder seems to be unclear. The water tube is closed with two plastic corks blocking the water from escaping. The screw on top of one of the plastic stoppers must be for directional sense or functional purposes. The blue background chosen for this image has a water texture feeling to it, which makes the product all the more appealing. The exposed natural quality of each wood also adds to the product persona making it desirable.
This is an image of a human with distorted parts and drawers in the torso. The face of the human is covered with his long hair making it impossible to identify the person. The arms and thighs are big and muscular where as the skin suggests old age. The drawers in the abdomen region have some hair like structures dangling out. The fingers of this creature seem strange and disturbing to an extent, like some disease. The person seems to be running away from something and seems to have fallen down due to fatigue.
The image may be protesting against the study of human body or anatomy. Therefore, during the process of opening all the doors of the human body, revealing its mysteries, the person is resisting it. Another interpretation of this image can be that the painting is reflecting upon the human body in the present times. It is full of secrets, which are locked away in drawers making the body miserable and ever restrained. The painting could also be a criticism to the modern world where humans have struggled to organize this world into what they perceive as a system.
