A R Rahman, award-winning composer/vocalist/keyboardist, played to sold-out arenas in North America this summer with his 3rd Dimension Tour, a 3.5 hour show performed in three languages and demonstrating the composer's mastery of a broad range of musical styles. Audiences in Chicago and Toronto were treated to a tantalizing glimpse of something new when Rahman performed a short solo of Carnatic music on Continuum fingerboard (controlling Kyma). Rahman, who is classically trained in both Carnatic and western musical traditions said that, as a child, he loved playing the keyboard but at the same time he found it frustrating not to be able to produce the microtonal tuning and ornaments of Indian classical music on a standard 12-tone keyboard. His dream is to inspire kids to continue the classical tradition by combining the world of digital audio with that of classical Carnatic music.
