Sandunes is one of India’s most engaging electronic music artists. From intellectually
stimulating art projects in galleries to playing at India’s inaugural Boiler Room session,
Sandunes (like her naturally occurring namesake) – Sanaya Ardeshir – plays with broad
landscapes of sound.
Her sonic identity has evolved alongside her journey from pianos to production. Her
performances reveal an appetite for integrating studio and stage. Audiences at home
and on the road have seen her supporting Pretty Lights in Colorado, headline every major festival in the country, including the globally renowned Magnetic Fields festival as well as iconic classical venues like the National Centre for Performing Arts in Mumbai.
Sandunes is an equally in-demand curator. She partnered with Red Bull TV for their
global Searching For Sound series, cataloguing the sounds of her city. Music software
company Ableton released a sample pack of the sounds now available for producers
to create their own stories.
Outside of the studio, Sandunes advocates accessibility and exposure around
music-making. She regularly gives workshops on music production and performance.
She’s spoken at Ableton’s cutting-edge LOOP festival in Berlin, at Mumbai’s G5A and on Point Blank’s online network of production masterclasses.
Sandunes will present a DJ set, a live performance and a music yoga class at REUSE x RISE.
