Sidhant Kapoor

Profile:
Born in a family of musicians in India, Sidhant had the privilege to learn & get inspired from his grandfather legendary singer Mahendra Kapoor and father singer Ruhan Kapoor.
He learnt Indian Classical from one of the most eminent Indian Classical Music teachers of India, Pandit Murli Manohar Shukla ji as well as trained under jazz exponent Sir Xavier Fernandes. Composing from an early age for music companies in U.K. and U.S.A, his music has been well received and used by reputed television channels like BBC, MTV, Discovery, ITV1, Sky, Animal Planet as well as films in the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Australia, Poland etc. His music was recently featured in an award winning Spanish movie ‘Un Espejo En El Cielo’, which was directed by Oscar Nominee Icíar Bollaín. Sidhant completed his post-graduate studies in Music Composition at the prestigious Trinity Laban conservatoire of Music & Dance, where he was working on incorporating Indian music elements in his compositions for western instruments. His experiments include writing graphic scores which could be played in various ways depending on the raga (Indian scale) chosen by the performer. He proved his mettle by winning competitions like the Harp-Composers competition and the reputed Daryl Runswick competition which earned his composition and premiere at the National Maritime Museum. His composition based on Ansel Adams' photography was praised by Dr. Michael Adams (son of Ansel Adams) and was chosen as the winning composition. One of the interesting projects he worked on during his time at Trinity was an opera based on an Indian mythological story - 'Birth Of Ganesha' which was appreciated by prominent classical composers Dr. Deirdre Gribbin and Dr. Stephen Montague.
